Trying to connect Kubuntu 16.04 box with usb cable connected iPad Pro 12.9 running ios 10.0.2

:~$ /usr/bin/idevicepair -u ***** pair
SUCCESS: Paired with device

:~$ idevicepair validate *********
SUCCESS: Validated pairing with device

:~$ ifuse ~/media/ipad -u ******
GnuTLS error: Error in the pull function.
Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device.
Try again. If it still fails try rebooting your device.

Reboot, repeat, same result. Anyone know what's wrong, OR is there a better forum to ask this question?

Thx, Gus


Apologies Rinzwind I wasn't trying to troll anyone. Anyway below are results per your suggestions. I'm not sure how to check if openssl is using SSLv3 (help?)

    "OR is there a better forum to ask this question?" always good to troll the people you want help from :) – Rinzwind Oct 10 '16 at 20:44
  • Good luck connecting an iOS device to a Linux computer. Not gonna happen. – You'reAGitForNotUsingGit Oct 10 '16 at 20:45

Tried following PPA and it works for me ( thanks to Martin Salbaba ),
Upgrade to libimobiledevice and relative packages to newer version:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:martin-salbaba/ppa+libimobiledevice
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install libimobiledevice-utils ifuse

Steps to pair:

Connected your iOS 10 device to your computer:

idevicepair pair

Select "Trust" to the Warning "Trust This Computer?" on your device:

idevicepair pair

Mount the iOS filesystem

ifuse Directory_to_mount_iDevice/

Above tested on iPhone 6s with iOS 10.1.1

And:
unmount properly:

fusemount -u Directory_to_mount_iDevice/

It seems that with iOS 10.2 Apple has broken it again. To fix:

  1. Download from GitHub latest versions of: libplist, libusbmuxd, libimobiledevice, ifuse and usbmuxd

  2. Put them in /usr/local/lib and compile (if you don't know how to do, just follow instructions inside the readme file inside each lib and remember that the development version of openssl is called libssl-dev when required)

  3. Make sure that environment vars point to this new versions rather than the old ones included in official packages:

    sudo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib usbmuxd  
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
    
  4. Connected your iOS 10.2 device to your computer:

    idevicepair pair
    
  5. Select "Trust" to the warning "Trust This Computer?" on your device:

    idevicepair pair
    
  6. Mount the iOS filesystem

    ifuse Mountpoint_Directory/
    

Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 and iPhone 7 with iOS 10.2

GnuTLS error: Error in the pull function.

is a network error. You can set GNUTLS_DEBUG_LEVEL to 99 to get more info on the error. It is likely going to tell you you are using older libraries than required or there is something wrong with openssl.

But ...

ifuse ~/media/ipad -u

seems wrong to me? Why is there a ~ in front of /media? I would assume you mount a device in /media and not in your home?

Also make sure you do not use openssl without SSLv3 or it will fail with that lockdownd service error notice.
