Q.  How can I remove (or rename) a .nomedia file?

A.  I tried two file manager apps and they both had trouble with it.
Android / Linux hide filenames that begin with dot by default.
(Its a convention, not a rule.)

So I resorted to the command line.
Using JuiceSsh app I setup a "Local Device" type connection.
Then did:

cd /my-folder (replace with your actual folder) rm .nomedia
