How to import digital photos from iPad to Linux using USB cable?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Pat Wilson, May 9, 2014.

  1. Wrong. It has nothing to do with "linux not saving the trust ticket", as it
    is not anything with "trust tickets" at all. In short, you know diddly squat
    what you are blubbering about

    It is an error introduced by *apple*
    Apple changed the access in iOS7 after a linux program was found which acted
    as a "fake apple charger" which could install rogue software on the iOS
    devices. These changes by *apple* make it necessary to install a new
    "imobiledevice library" on the linux machine affected.

    So what you are doing here is blaming linux for a problem which was
    introduced by apple (and not even reported back to the linux community,
    which had to resolve this without apples help).

    Well, I don't expect better from apple Fanbois. Those are usually way dumber
    than heated dirt

    plenty of them.

    the normal use case is to send one file, so that is what many such apps
    are optimized for. some might also include being able to choose and
    send multiple files, but that's less common so not all of them do.

    it's up to the app developer what features to include and what the
    purpose of the app actually is.

    it's not bullshit.

    look at microsoft for proprietary.

    there's nothing standard about wma/wmv, active directory, internet
    explorer and its html hacks, wins, c#, .net and plenty more. microsoft
    locks people into their products by creating their own proprietary
    format or taking an existing one and making a change that only works
    with windows.

    meanwhile, apple sticks to industry standards. not only that but a
    large part of os x is open source. good luck getting the source of
    anything in windows.

    it has everything to do with it and i know exactly what the mechanism
    by which an ios device pairs with a computer.

    you do not.
    it's called juice jacking and is an issue for more than just apple
    products. it's a potential exploit that apple patched on their devices.

    all linux needs to do is properly pair with the ios device. until it
    does so, the device will continue to ask to trust it.
    apple did not introduce a problem. instead, they *fixed* a problem,
    that being a potential security exploit. non-apple mobile devices are
    still at risk.
    insults mean there's nothing to back up your statements.

    I wouldn't say that. He manages to come up with some whoppers.

  6. You (for some reason escaping me) failed to notice that

    a) this is not a MS group
    b) I don't use windows

    c) you are a stupid prick

    neither of which changes anything that apple or microsoft or any other
    company does.
    when all you have are insults, then you have nothing.

    You said all Windows apps can be run on a Mac. If that is true, your
    above statement isn't.
    make up your mind.

    they do not conflict and both are true.

    you really have no clue about what is being discussed.

  11. What part of "imobiledevice" seems like a library for other devices than
    apples junk for you?

    Hint: It is a library which contains the protocols to access iOS devices.
    Linux does not need it for other ones. It is exclusivly for i-junk

    In short: You again made yourself look like that incompetent stupid
    nincompoop you really are

    that library is not needed to copy photos off an ios device.

    ios devices connect and look like any normal digital camera would and
    use ptp, an standard protocol, to transfer photos.

    it's not an insult. it's a statement of fact based on your ridiculous
    posts. you consistently miss the points being discussed and often say
    the most irrelevant and bizarre things. you really have no idea what
    you're talking about.

    furthermore, you are the one who insults first, which means you admit
    your statements have nothing backing them, not that anyone is surprised
    about that.

    (d) If you are an enterprise or OEM customer or an MVP you can obtain
    the Windows source from Microsoft at no charge.

    Everyone who disputes your assinine statements, misses the point.

    windows is *not* open source. it's as proprietary as it gets and good
    luck reusing anything from that in other projects.

    wrong on that too.

    Not if you're connecting your iPad to an Apple computer, or a Windows
    computer with the "iPad drivers" installed. But Apple do not provide
    any "drivers" for connecting their devices to other operating systems,
    nor do they reveal the code in the device firmware to make it easy for
    anyone else to provide such "drivers".

    "libimobiledevice" is an independent third-party project to get around
    that Apple-created problem. <>.

    Apple changed the way iOS 7 connects to computers, so inevitably
    libimobiledevice no longer worked for iOS 7. The volunteers who
    maintain libimobiledevice had to 'reverse engineer' the iOS 7 firmware
    and work out how to operate with the changes. That takes time.
    No they don't, they connect like iOS devices, using Apple's own
    proprietary methods.
    Only once the device is successfully connected to the computer.

    But iOS devices are extremely vulnerable to it, because they are
    designed to interact automatically and 'back up' and 'update' everything
    every time they are plugged in to a 'trusted' computer - and the user
    only has to 'trust' that computer once for the life of the iOS device.
    That's jolly handy for iPad users, but also jolly handy for anyone who
    wants to get inside your iPad without you knowing.

    (Android devices are less promiscuous by design).

    The real danger comes from using a 'public' USB charging socket to
    charge your gadget; you should never ever do that, but apparently some
    people were doing it. ("There's one born every minute").

    Apple had to move quickly to protect their ignorant gullible users from
    themselves. Better a flat iPad than one taken over by a malicious or
    intrusive person or agency. The inability to connect your iPad with any
    computer not equipped with the latest "iOS drivers" is precisely the
    effect Apple intended, they did it on purpose "for your own good". Too
    bad that people with iOS 7 gadgets but no up-dated Apple or Windows
    computer would no longer be able to connect their iOS thing with their
    own computer (at least, until someone works out how to get around
    Apple's latest changes to iOS 7).
    Exactly. But it's the iOS thing that isn't talking; Linux wants to but
    iOS refuses to listen.
    Apple put a massive security hole in their iOS system design, then
    created problems for some of their users by trying to patch that hole.
