Arch 2013 + iPhone5

Hi guys,
I'm trying to use my iPhone5 in a VM(vbox - win7 guest) but Arch is not recognizing it. When I plug it in, nothing happens. It's not even charging the battery. However, my iPod seems to be working just fine.

$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 05c8:0222 Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co., Ltd (Foxlink)
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0cf3:311d Atheros Communications, Inc.

Any idea about it? hmm

thanks in advance!

[EDITED]
Ps.: i've got 2 rules files copied from wiki
$ ls /etc/udev/rules.d/
10-my-media-automount.rules  11-discs-auto-mount.rules

No, you're trying to us your iPhone5 in a vm and the vm isn't recognizing it.  This isn't an Arch problem, and udev shouldn't affect how the vm sees the device (if you can mount it in Arch, but not the vm, then Arch isn't the problem, is what I'm getting at).  Do you have guest additions properly installed?  It's required to use USB devices.  There may be particular conditions necessary for the iPhone to work, as well.  I'd say look around the VirtualBox forums to eliminate that possiblity.

Thanks for the response ANOKNUSA, but I'm afraid you didn't get it. Let's forget about the vm then.
When I plug the iPhone5 in, Arch should recognize it as a new device and it'd be able to at least charge its battery. However, it's not happening the way it should. It's not even on the connected USB device list as mentioned before.
Got it?

Did you try different USB ports? Did you try to connect something else on the troublesome USB port?

Edit: did you try

lsusb -v

it gives you massive amounts of information but might actually show something.

Libmobiledevice installed?  Might need git version... I had a similar problem with some other apple hardware before support was in a final version.

yup, libmobiledevice is installed.
Also tried to install both libmobiledevice-git and its usbmuxd-git dependency, but GDM didn't started afterwards.

Tried that too.
The lsusb -v command didn't bring any information related to apple/iphone hardware.

Re: Arch 2013 + iPhone5

Well, isn't foxlink an apple supplier?  So I would imagine that the "Cheng Uei Precision Industry Co., Ltd (Foxlink)" is simply the brading of the actual SoC.  I am not at al sure about this though.

Also, in the past, it has taken a bit of time for apple devices to be supported on linux.  I had one of those tiny ipod nanos (the really stoopidly tiny touchscreen one), and it was pretty not okay with linux for a while.  Maybe your best bet is to use a virtual machine.

Does the ipod you speak of actually work in the virual machine, or are you simply referring to it charging and working within linux?

This foxlink appears even when the iphone is unplugged. Also, I've got a iPod Nano which works fine on archlinux.
I suppose if the host machine is not able to mount an usb device, the guest vm wouldn't do it as well.

Re: Arch 2013 + iPhone5

I'll just leave it for now. It could also be cord issues. As I only have one, I'll give it a try with another and post the result as soon as possible.
Anyways, I'd like to thank you guys for the effort trying to help me out.
Cheers
