That sounds off.  First, you don't need to root the phone to run USB
debugging, but you do need to install the android devtools, and I am not
aware that they work under NetBSD, but they might.

But you do need to allow each computer to debug the phone, vs transfer files.

Then, with adb you can copy individual files.
