iPhone 3G won't pair under VMware

Reported by Stephen | October 25th, 2010 @ 04:19 PM


I run a Debian unstable/experimental under VMware and the iPhone won't pair (works fine on a standalone Debian though).

Here's the dmesg output:

[ 4745.580887] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2 [ 4745.742591] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=05ac, idProduct=1292 [ 4745.742633] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 4745.742700] usb 1-1: Product: iPhone [ 4745.742736] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Apple Inc. [ 4745.742757] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: BLAHBLAHBLAH [ 4745.760802] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 4 choices [ 4746.193111] ipheth 1-1:4.2: Apple iPhone USB Ethernet device attached [ 4746.195069] usbcore: registered new interface driver ipheth

/usr/bin/idevicepair pair

No device found, is it plugged in?


/lib/udev/ipheth-pair: -3: cannot get default device #

~# dpkg --list | grep iPhone ii ifuse 1.0.0-1 FUSE module for iPhone and iPod Touch devices
ii ipheth-utils 1.0-3 USB tethering driver support utilities for the iPhone
ii libimobiledevice-utils 1.0.2-1 Library for communicating with iPhone and iPod Touch devices
ii libimobiledevice1 1.0.2-1 Library for communicating with the iPhone and iPod Touch
ii libusbmuxd1 1.0.4-1 USB multiplexor daemon for iPhone and iPod Touch devices - library
ii usbmuxd 1.0.4-1 USB multiplexor daemon for iPhone and iPod Touch devices

I know this may not be a priority, but I thought it would be nice to fix.

    • Tag set to debian, vmware
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    While we don't fix VMWare USB issues, please provide information about your host system and vmware software, perhaps we could test this.
