How to connect iPhone/iPod Touch (Using USB) in Karmic/Jaunty/Intrepid/Hardy
iFuse allows you to mount an iPhone or iPod Touch under Linux using the USB cable. You can view and edit the files similar to a normal USB disk drive. iFuse does not require “jailbreaking” or voiding your warranty and works without needing extra software installed on the phone (such as `ssh`).
iFuse is a FUSE filesystem driver which uses `libiphone` to connect to devices without jailbreak. iFuse is using the native Apple “AFC” protocol, over the normal USB cable in order to access the iPhone’s (or iPod Touch’s) media files under Linux.
