According to the gtkpod Help doc (under Troubleshooting) the iPhone and
iPod Touch can only be accessed via sshfs, meaning you have to jailbreak
them.

Somewhat OT: I recently bought a Pay-And-Go iPhone from O2 in the UK and
was delighted to find that they will unlock it on payment of a fee (15
pounds). This appears to be in response to competition from Vodaphone
and Orange, which recently started selling iPhones. Since my main
motivation for unlocking was to use other Sim cards, I'll probably avoid
the jailbreak route for now and use MediaMonkey under a VM to transfer
my media content. On my netbook it's fast and functional where iTunes is
molasses slow and bloated. Of course you can't use it for a full sync,
but that wasn't the question.
