Thread: iPhone how to

  1. #1

    Default iPhone how to

    Hello,

    After much trial and tribulation I have found a consistent method to mount and manage your iPhone using gtkpod.

    Pre-reqs:
    libimobiledevice1-1.0.2-7.1.i586
    ifuse-1.0.0-9.1.i586
    libgpod4-0.7.93-3.2.i586
    gtkpod-0.99.14-3.3.i586

    There are other dependencies that Yast should auto-resolve for you...

    As a non root user...

    mkdir ~/iphone
    ifuse ~/iphone

    Confirm that you see it mounted by running df -k

    ifuse 14974528 3577560 11396968 24% /home/a/iphone

    Then you can fire up gtkpod and select your model and start uploading music. I have tested this on 11.2 and 11.3 on different computers with both jail broke and non jail broken iPhone 3GS with new and older bootroms running IOS4.

    Hope this helps others as I went nuts trying to make sense of the sporadic posts all over the google.

    Earlier, due to certain version conflicts of the libs, it was difficult to make it working. Now, it is much better.

    Thanks for posting this, it is very useful to many.

    Hi,
    I am trying to get my iPhone connected.
    ifuse works, the output of df -k looks like this:

    ifuse 7083844 1941936 5141908 28% /home/a/iphone

    but opening up gtkpod lets me install the directories, but then I get this error message:
    ImageBam - Fast, Free Image Hosting and Photo Sharing

    Any idea what the solution might be?

    I have an iphone 4, the above instructions worked wonderfully to get my device recognized on the system.
    GTKpod see's my iphone. However Iphone 4 is not in the model list.
    Further investigations lead me to understand that Iphone 4 and/or ipad is not yet supported with this method.

    Do us iphone 4 folks have no other alternatives? I dont want to have to run a windows VM just for the sake of the phone sync.

    I sure hope we have another option.

    contact Apple and ask them when they will release their Linux app
    allowing you to manage your iPhone...

    or, just ask them to give you all the API hooks so a Linux programmer
    can program the interface...
