[1.1.2] [Solved] iTunes won't detect iPhone
Got a bit of a problem. I have a 1.1.2OTB that was jailbroken/activated/unlocked with Ziphone (still running the 4.6BL) and initially iTunes would sync with my phone, however I recently noticed that it simply does not detect the phone. If I put the phone into restore mode, iTunes will display a message saying the phone is in restore mode, but when out of restore mode it simply won't detect. Oddly, iSync WOULD sync as iTunes had previously set up the device.
Now, I have just reinstalled Leopard on my Mac and low and behold, it still doesn't detect my iPhone. Naturally I now want to sync my contacts and calendar off the iPhone so I would really like to get this working!! In all cases (old install and new) I am running iTunes 7.4.2 (which I would like to stick with personally, unless someone has had exactly the same situation resolved with an update to a higher version).
Any suggestions? I guess in the worst case I could locate the contacts and calendar files and perhaps just update to 1.1.4 and copy the backed up dbs back to the phone and (pending the iTunes detecting the phone) sync from it, but a bit unsure exactly how to proceed at this point so any suggestions would be appreciated.
EDIT: Some extra info: I CAN SSH to the phone and also use Disk for iPhone to mount it to access the contents, just cannot detect and sync via iTunes. Also, when I connect my iPhone to my mac it automatically downloads the images.
Solution: I had 'Ziphone iBrickr Fix' installed. This was the culprit. Uninstalling and rebooting the phone sorted the problem.

I had this problem as well. I upgraded my itunes to 7.6.1 and itunes stopped detecting my phone. I then downgraded to 7.5 and reinstalled USB drivers and it started working.
You can try doing the same.
What drivers did you install? I've been looking for drivers as I seem to be having the same problem, and it's not just iTunes, it's also with IphoneRingtonMaker. It happened after I upgraded iTunes to 7.6.1... I tried downgrading iTunes back to 7.4, but that didn't fix it... Help appreciated!

I'm using Windows XP Pro-
First, ensure that you have iTUnes 7.5 Installed. I recommend this version, since 7.6.1 is what caused this problem for me in the first place.
If you need to uninstall a newer version, do so by opening the control panel and use the "Add/Remove Programs" utility.
1- You must right-click on "My Computer" and select "Manage
2- In the left pane, select "Device Manager"
3- In the right window, expand "Imaging devices" or similar imaging category
4- You should see "Apple Camera" or something similar
5- Right click on the "Apple camera" and select "Update Driver"
6- Select second option "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" click Next
7- Check the box labeled "Include this location in the search
8- Copy and paste this path into the folder line- C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers
9- Click "Next"
Windows should now locate the necessary USBAAPL driver to run the iPhone and enable it's detection in iTunes.
If this does not work, open your windows explorer, and use the search option at the top of the window. Search for "Usbaapl". This should turn up the location of the driver files you need to reassociate the iPhone with iTunes. Make a note of the directory, and use that in the Driver Update. My drivers happened to be in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support\Drivers folder.
I hope this gets some of you back to working /syncing order.
