  • usbmuxd2

    A socket daemon written in C++ to multiplex connections from and to iOS devices over USB and WIFI

    While trying to get parts of this to compile, I found https://github.com/tihmstar/usbmuxd2 which you can replace usbmuxd with and get wifi sync support.

  • libimobiledevice.org

    Official Website of libimobiledevice

    Could you gather some info from the devtools and report this as a bug to the website repo?

  • libimobiledevice

    A cross-platform protocol library to communicate with iOS devices

    For restoring a backup to a Linux filesystem, libimobiledevice requires the iOS device to be present, so you will probably want ideviceunback instead, which doesn't have this issue:

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • ideviceunback

    Decodes iPhone manifest and backup created by idevicebackup2
