[CLOSED] IPOD TOUCH

Post by intrcptr » Sun Nov 19, 2017 3:29 am

I am having IPOD issues and thought I would see what my fellow brothers here have to offer. I have two IPOD touches and I can't seem to get either of them to be recognized on linux. Years ago when I was on mint I remember successfully adding music to the and everything. Not sure what happenned since then, but I cannot seem to get them recognized. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The ipod touch does not appear as a usb mass storage device unfortunately so you cannot directly access the disk as you would imagine. The only way to probably restore the device is with itunes. (I don't think gtkpod is up to this yet) If you upgrade greater a certain version you will not be able to jailbreak the touch again (well this used to be the case a yr or so ago).

For forcing a ipod touch into recovery mode, so you can re-install firmware, genuine or jailbroken
http://www.ehow.com/how_5508348_force-i … -mode.html

You can now mount and syncronise you ipod touch or iphone (without jailbreak) with linux, using the following packages, in aur

Code: Select all

libgod-git
ifuse
 >libimobiledevice
    >usbmuxd
      libplist
As you can see libimobiledevice and usbmuxd are dependencies of ifuse.

Also of reference - The iFuse way - The only way with out jailbreak. This also now works in ubuntu without any cli intervention needed. Hopefully when support makes it into the standard libgpod, the other packages will make it into community smile
