    syncing iphone 4s with iOS 5.1 in ubuntu 12.04

    Hi, I'm trying to sync iphone 4s with iOS 5.1 in ubuntu 12.04. I've tried using the Rythmbox and gtkpod iPod manager. However they seem to be laced with errors.

    Question 1: Can you actually sync in 12.04?
    Question 2: Do I need to have my iphone unlocked/jailbroken to manage it in 12.04?

    Thanks

    Are you trying to simply sync music and podcasts, or perform backups, app management, etc.. ?

    This is currently not possible with iOS 5. For more details see http://www.libimobiledevice.org/. search for donate in the webpage.

    Actually, if you read libimobiledevice's page, they use libgpod for music sync. libimobiledevice basically handles everything but music sync.

    http://www.gtkpod.org/wiki/Libgpod <-- info

    I've been on the gtkpod mailing list for a long time, and not much progress is being made on the iOS 5 front. Last activity I saw regarding that was back in January, I think. I don't know if it's a lack of interest or a lack of resources.

    I have a kinda solution for this but its not realted to ubuntu so, its up to you taht you find it suitable or not.
    I have finally found how to insert music into the iphone 4 database, without using itunes. A program from cydia called Mewseek,works on my jailbroken iphone 4, on IOS 5.01.
