I tired to upgrade my iPhone firmware kind v2 to v3 making use of iTunes running in VMware. The procedure quit mid stream and also the iPhone was provided pointless. I hooked it approximately a close friend is home windows equipments and also after numerous upgrade efforts it returned to life.
Updates withing the very same significant variations functioned penalty in iTunes/VMware though.
While some older variations of iTunes can presently be made to collaborate with Wine (or Crossover), they can not be made use of to upgrade or sync more recent iPods
The factor is that Wine does not have a trainer for Windows USB tool drivers, and also the iPod works as a personalized USB tool. This coincides factor that software program that calls for an unique key dongle additionally does not (yet) operate in Wine. There are some initial spots readily available for this, and also you can find out more history on the Wine wiki, nonetheless do not anticipate anything to function.
The only iPods that presently operate in Wine are actually old iPods that work as straightforward USB mass storage space tools. And also also after that you still require to locate an older, functioning iTunes.
As a result of this trouble in Wine, to do the firmware upgrade you'll require to either arrangement a digital equipment with Virtualbox or VMware or, probably extra merely, obtain somebody else is computer system.
