[SOLVED] libimobiledevice 1.3.0 won’t backup iphone

Hello,

I have installed

libimobiledevice ifuse,  systemctl status usbmuxd.service

is up and running.

Ideviceinfo idevicepair pair

   outputs all iphones info and a SUCCESS!! pair 

ifuse -o allow_other /mnt/iphone   /mnt/iphone

displays:

Books
DCIM
Downloads
iTunes_Control
MediaAnalysis
PhotoData
Photos
Recordings

However, I get the error below when trying to backup the iphone:

$ idevicebackup2 backup --full /home/john/13/
Backup directory is "/home/john/13/"
Started "com.apple.mobilebackup2" service on port 49250.
Could not perform backup protocol version exchange, error code -1

I have upgraded the system pacman -Syu  and backup fails, any ideas?
Thanks,

Use the -git package from the AUR. The package in the Extra repo is known not to work for all the recent IOS releases but the maintainer does not care.

If the development release works for you, that's fine, but it's not the package maintainer's fault that there hasn't been an upstream release since 2020.

Believe me, I'm very well aware of that but I tried to contact the maintainer via email as suggested here and I got no answer. What's the point of shipping a software release which is known broken for almost everyone when the solution is available? Anyways, I just gave a look at the gitlab page and I noticed that there are a few recent reports that even the latest GIT release is not able to restore backups and that there are a few new issues with IOS 17.4 . This is enough for me to abandon this software and try to use iTunes in my W11 VM.

Just as you would do with any other package from the AUR. Please note that that package will depend on other -git packages, also available in the AUR.

Thanks.
Please keep in mind that i'm a newbie and not sure of the right steps, I had a post under newbie but schard took it off.
Would I first need to remove libimobiledevice, pacman Rns libimobiledevice before compiling the git version?
And after I download and CD into the libimobiledevice-git folder what are the commands ill have to type?

No, just install the -git version and pacman will ask you to remove the non-git package in the same transaction.

I did makepkg and the below packages were built, do I need to move them to /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ and run pacman -U for each package from within that folder?

libimobiledevice-git
libimobiledevice-glue-git
libplist-git
libusbmuxd-git

No need to move anything. Just run pacman -U <package-name>
