iPhone USB Tethering on Raspberry Pi

Mon Sep 24, 2012 10:51 pm

Hello Everyone,

Recently I followed the instructions found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_yhJ_QBfaU

I was able to use my iPhone 4S to tether using USB on the Raspberry Pi (using USB powered hub). I did this by finding out that my iPhone uses eth1 as its main port and then doing dhclient eth1.

However, when I download a large(r) file (7,000KB), my Raspberry Pi cuts out the internet and seems to stop transmitting data through USB. I then have to unplug the iPhone from the USB port and re-plug it in to achieve a internet connection again.

Could this be a problem with the USB drivers?

I will post my terminal screenshot (later today) to show you how it cuts off (and what I mean by that).

In the meantime, please give me some suggestions on how to overcome this problem.


Thanks,
Phillip K

Speaking as someone who understands that a new product may attract people who have little to no prior Linux experience, (who, therefore need a little more verbose help) I gotta say that your post is only about 1% better than "RTFM, n00b!"

Well spoken.

"It may be that severe load (using the tether) crashes the Pi. This may be caused by the turbo_mode. Here you can find how to turn it off: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 4&p=182703
My guess is that it's clear from running dmesg that turbo_mode is utilised or not. Dmesg is a command to show the message buffer of the kernel.

What I found here: http://www.jorgensen.org.uk/computers/2 ... -in-debian

Code: Select all

apt-get install ipheth-utils

Hi guys.

I am a relative noob, but managed to tether my iphone for internet access on Wheezy.

Starting afresh with the latest Jessie download, either full or lite, i cannot get the pi to recognose the iphone for tethering

I download all the additional components, but on connecting the iphone via usb i do not get the 'trust' question on the iphone and nor is 'eth1' appearing.

Something has changed in Jessie i guess?

How do i get around this.

My goal is to use the tethered iphone for mobile internet access, shared via the wifi dongle as a hotspot. This works under wheezy.

Thanks in advance

Steve

I'm getting the same problem.. I haven't used it before, but based on reading online, I should expect an ETH1 after plugging in the phone but it's not happening.. Fresh install of latest version of Raspbian Jessie with all updates.. (ie new install 30 minutes ago).. Any help would be awesome!

I had the same problem, eth1 appeared automatically under wheezy but not jessie

Try installing usbmuxd

Sudo apt-get install usbmuxd

After this the iphone was recognised and eth1 appeared, turn on personal hotspot 'usb only' and you have a connection

I have not been able to get this to work with iPhone 6 and iOS 10.3.3 with the following packages:

gvfs ipheth-utils libimobiledevice-utils gvfs-backends gvfs-bin gvfs-fuse.

When USB is connected to the Pi see the usb but does not know what it is. The source I have found for ipheth-utils looks to only support iPhone 5 and below. ifconfig -s never shows the new network interface.

following these cookbooks:

https://www.daveconroy.com/ditch-your-c ... pberry-pi/

Any help or ideas is are appreciated!

I got it to work half way by installing and reinstall the packages. now the tethering will only work if the iPhone hotspot is bounced (or USB disconnected/reconnected) after the Pi is started/restarted. Also I am unable to mount the phone using ifuse.

if I get this message (paired or unpaired):
GnuTLS error: Error in the push function.
Failed to connect to lockdownd service on the device.
Try again. If it still fails try rebooting your device.
