ideviceimagemounter --list always return image non present even if mounted

Reported by ebtokyo | January 21st, 2013 @ 08:56 PM | in 1.4.0 Release


When I run

ideviceimagemounter --list -d -x

the result is always :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

This even is the image is already mounted (ImagePresent=false). I noticed in the device logs this line :

Jan 21 12:53:37 iPad-Mini mobile_storage_proxy[175] <Error>: 0x39d28b88 handle_lookup_image: Entry 2 of 4 does not have a disk image type

Is there a know issue in ideviceimagemounter on list mode ?

PS: Device is iPad Mini running iOS 6.0.1

    Unfortunately, this seems to be a bug in iOS.
    After you mounted, the disk image, the lookup will work fine the first time.
    Further lookup will fail as you described.
    The reason why Apple doesn't care is that this is mostly used for mounting the developer disk image and XCode uses a lockdown key to check if the developer disk image was mounted instead of using the mobile image mounter service.

    Feel free to file a bug at Apple. ;)

    We might look into it someday further though.

    Unfortunately, it's not a bug, it's a feature. After you mounted, the first image lookup will work fine, the second will fail as you describe.

    Feel free to file a bug at Apple. ;)
