    Thumbs down iPhone USB Support in VirtualBox 4

    Hi All, I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit with VirtualBox 4.0.0 r69151 as my host system.

    My guest system is a Windows 7 64-bit with the Guest Add'ons installed.

    I am having difficulties getting my iPhone 3GS iOS 4.x (Jailbroken) to work inside the virtual environment.

    My user on my computer "orion" has been added to the vboxusers group, and I have created a USB Filter with the following information:

    Enable USB Controller: Yes
    Enable USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller: Yes

    Filter Name: Apple Inc. iPhone [0001]
    Vendor ID: 05ac
    Product ID: BLANK
    Revision: BLANK
    Manufacturer: BLANK
    Product: BLANK
    SERIAL NO: BLANK
    Port: BLANK
    Remote: NO

    I read on another forum it is best to leave everything blank except the Vendor ID so that multiple iPhones/iPods can be synced through based on different product ID's and serial #'s.

    I have also added the following line to etc/fstab in hopes of it working

    none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgif=123,devmod664 0 0
    ID 123 is the ID of the vboxuser group

    In the device menu under USB my iPhone is check marked.

    Windows detects that a USB device is being plugged in and unplugged, and in the Device Manager i have an "Apple Mobile Device Driver", which unfortunately is failing to load. (Yellow Warning Symbol).

    I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall the latest 64-bit version of iTunes from the Apple website, but nothing I do seems to allow the device to successfully connect to windows.

    Has anyone gotten this to work?

    I resolved it. After reading the Virtual Box 4.0 help doc's, it turns out you need an expansion pack for USB 2.0 to work, which is really, really stupid considering... Anyway, I installed the extension pack and everything is fine

    Re: iPhone USB Support in VirtualBox 4

    Hello,

    I have done everything mentioned here so far:

    I am running Windows 7 64bit within Virtualbox. I have downloaded and installed the extension pack, added a usb filter for iPhone in VB, iPhone is now seen and installed within Windows. I can see it and open the photos etc.

    However, iTunes cannot see the iPhone.

    Any ideas?
