iPhone 4 not recognized on pc
- date: August 20, 2011
Some stats first. My jailbroken iphone is running 4.2.8. My iphone syncs to a windows 7 desktop, with itunes 10.4. The phone is no longer recognized by itunes or, apparantly, the OS. When this started, the iphone would show up in windows explorer, but itunes would complain that it couldn't read the phone, and that I should do a restore. I didn't want to do that, as when I upgraded to 4.2.8, I had a failure with the backups I had done and I had to start from scratch with cydia. I was hoping to troubleshoot the problem.
Anyway, today, when I hook up the phone to the computer, the phone makes the connection sound, but the PC doesn't. Itunes opens, but displays no messages or otherwise notice the device, and the phone doesn't show up in windows explorer either. But the phone is visible to the program iphone explorer. The phone is otherwise apparently operating normally.
This problem seems to have started after I downloaded an update to libgpod. It appear
