Connect iphone with SolydX

Postby ilu » 29 Jan 2019 23:50

After a lot of frustration ("Unhandled Lockdown error (-3)" and "Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device.") I managed to tame the stupid phone system:

1. Enable stretch-backports
2. Update the following packages:

Code: Select all

ifuse (1.1.2-0.1+b5) to 1.1.3-0.1~bpo9+1
libimobiledevice-utils (1.2.0+dfsg-3.1) to 1.2.1~git20180302.3a37a4e-1~bpo9+1
libimobiledevice6 (1.2.0+dfsg-3.1) to 1.2.1~git20180302.3a37a4e-1~bpo9+1
python-imobiledevice (1.2.0+dfsg-3.1) to 1.2.1~git20180302.3a37a4e-1~bpo9+1
3. Open terminal

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir /media/<username>/iPhone
sudo chown <username>:<username> /media/<username>/iPhone
idevicepair pair
ERROR: Please accept the trust dialog on the screen of device ...., then attempt to pair again.
idevicepair pair
SUCCESS: Paired with device f70489be685c3f5c85c2013a28c8e935e66f95db
ifuse /media/<username>/iPhone/
4. Uninstall stupid shotwell which always gets in the way and never does the job.

Hi Ilu,

I had the same problem supporting some friends
and my solution was, to make use of the
IDevice Connector Packages which are part
of MX-Linux distribution tools and install
them on SolydX.

AFAIK works like a charme :-)

MX is debian stable but with some updated packages, so both solutions probably end up the same. Do you remember which exact packages you took from MX? While it is not recommended to use packages from other distros MX is very close so usually no problem. Just be very carefully with 'buntu based distros.
