--disable-openssl you have added to the configure is problematic and breaks iwdp HEAD in a segmentation fault with iOS 13

I have verified that after removing --disable-openssl, iwdp works and no more fails in a segmentation fault

For more informations

Sorry if my question are a bit stupid but pretty new in Arch Linux and I wonder few things

  • I'm wondering why on pacman and here, the version is showing as 1.1.0.r791.gd04f8ff-1 but on PKGBUILD it is 1.2.0.r154.gd04f8ff , the PKGBUILD version seems the true one, any reason it is not reflected to the website and in pacman -Ss ?

  • Also, the package in extra is versionned with this template (without .r and with +) 1.2.0+87+g92c5462-6, wouldn't it be better that you match the same template with git describe --long --tags | sed 's/-/+/g' ?

This would give

extra/libimobiledevice 1.2.0+87+g92c5462-6

aur /libimobiledevice 1.2.0+154+gd04f8ff-1

I believe this would help to sort out that the aur package is more up to date than the one in extra because with the one in extra, I was unable to pair a iphone xs on latest iOS version 13.3

Okay, after thinking it over, I downgraded all the -git dependencies to their repo versions. As of now, the stuff appears to work, and I don't have any better ideas how to break that cyclic dep short of downgrading usbmuxd to an optdepend (as it has been done before, but I really don't like it).

@xHalloweenx it seems that usbmuxd actually wants libimobiledevice for one of its features, so I don't think that would've been a good idea.

Dependencies seems to be stuck in a loop libimobiledevice-git depends on usbmuxd-git but usbmuxd-git depends on libimobiledevice-git. Results in a build failure since dependencies can never be met.Removing libimobiledevice dependency from usbmuxd-git is needed for libimobiledevice to build.

It still builds with the repo versions

In the past, it often didn’t. If you’re willing to track whether that’s still the case after each pushed commit, be my guest ;)

As for the python bindings, I’ll synchronize with the repo package, thanks for the report.

Is there any reason why this needs to depend on VCS versions of libplist, libusbmuxd and usbmuxd? It still builds with the repo versions, which wouldn't be the case (at least for libplist and libusbmuxd) if it used functions that don't exist in the repo version. VCS packages should generally depend on the repo versions of dependencies unless there is a reason to depend on the VCS version (see, and users who wish to use VCS versions of dependencies can install them manually since they have the non-VCS version in provides.

Also, it appears that this package doesn't build the Python 3 bindings which the repo version does, and it doesn't build the Python 2 bindnings in a clean chroot either due to cython2 not being included in makedepends (CYTHON=/usr/bin/cython2 would also be needed), however these were recently removed from the repo version ( and can probably be removed from here as well.

When tethered over USB;

systemd-networkd[461]: enp0s20f0u2c4i2: Could not bring up interface: Invalid argument on 1:1.2.0.r96.g4727a86-1

Same issue as libimobiledevice on iPhone X running 12.3.

@migerh: Ah, absolutely right, sorry! Built the package (and replaced the core repositories' ones) and it worked. Thanks a lot!

@numbleroot Have you tried rebuiding the package? It should include this commit.

I simply rebuilt it and got this: Packages (1) libimobiledevice-git-1:1.2.0.r66.g5a85432-1

@intelfx: Could you maybe update this package to include the latest git commit of libimobiledevice ( )?

If I understand the latest commit correctly, it fixes a bug where no connection could be established due to updated handling of the ValidatePair request in iOS 11. I currently cannot connect my iOS 11 device and it is likely to affect increasingly more users.

Thanks in advance.
