Hi Folks,

Im running Ubuntu 10.04, 64bit with libimobiledevice package installed as
per default. I used to be able to plug in an iPhone/Pod running Apple ios
4.1.x and see files on the device sync music etc.

However since upgrading the iPod and iPhone to ios4.2 this is no longer
possible. Ive tried googling around but not found much in the way of
information apart from a few mentions that ios4.2 has changed some things
with the internal DB and the linux side of things is yet to reverse engineer
this. Is this correct and if so has anyone else had this problem? I can see
the devices in lsusb but they dont seem to mount:

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 05ac:1294 Apple, Inc. iPhone 3GS

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05ac:1293 Apple, Inc.

Bus 002 Device 006: ID 05ac:129a Apple, Inc.

Is there anything I need to change or alter to get these devices back to a
state where I can pull files off them? It was useful being able to drag
photos and music off of them rather than jumping through all the hoops you
need to with iTunes etc.
