I wanted to write a quick bug that I was wondering if anyone discovered a work around to. Now although the iOS 7 platform is very restrictive compared to other available platforms, I still have the desire to be able to access my files from my Phone. Unfortunately, every time i connect my device I receive the following error:
On my iPhone I then allow permission via:
Unfortunately, this is where problems start to arise. It seems Ubuntu does not recognize the permissions that the iPhone is granting and thus is locking itself each time the device is connected. Unlike a USB, the iOS 7 will lock itself until you give it permission. However, the permission you give it is completely unrecognized by Ubuntu as it states:
Thus I am left to browse the webs looking for a solution. With a quick Google search, I encountered the following advise:
sudo apt-get install libimobiledevice-utils;idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pair
After install and run, the device reports:
If I call idevicepair pair again, then the following error occurs:
justin@justin-CT15:~$ idevicepair unpair && idevicepair pairERROR: Device d1fea2c56e51199f901eb34020a1581ea31a2a50 is not paired with this host
Therefore, I am left to experiment with different solutions that end up not working. In end result, I like to turn this over to the community to comment and perhaps work on a solution until a workable bug can be pushed to the main repository. I am troubled to find little to no reference at all through a Google search. I cannot, after all, be the only iOS 7 / Ubuntu 13.10 user on the planet. If anyone would like me to experiment a few workarounds, I will be happy to do so.
justin@justin-CT15:~$ idevicepair pair
ERROR: Could not pair with the device because a passcode is set. Please enter the passcode on the device and retry.
Thank you again and have a wonderful day
