Wrench Location ID in system_profile

I'm trying to access an old (3GS) iPhone that I have just to play around with it, however the digitizer broke long ago so the touch screen doesn't work. So I figured I could install a webserver, php, python, etc on it to use it as a test server, or at least see what I can do with it.

So when I connect it via USB it doesn't show in /Volumes. When I run system_profile | grep "iPhone" I can find this :

Product ID: 0x1294
Vendor ID: 0x05ac  (Apple Inc.)
Version: 0.01
Serial Number:               
Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
Manufacturer: Apple Inc.
Location ID: 0x1a120000 / 4
Current Available (mA): 500
Current Required (mA): 500
Extra Operating Current (mA): 500

I'm not asking anyone to help me jailbreak my iPhone, my question is, how do I find (guessing from the Location ID) where it is in the /dev directory? Or a location to cd into or ip to SSH into (or even just ping and go from there).

Am I looking in the wrong direction even with system_profile? Is there a way to grep /dev or some other way to see what USB devices are connected and then the path to them or other related info?

I'm guessing this could be a handy thing to know if I have any other devices in the future which connect but don't automatically mount.

Thanks! Smilie

I avoided answering for a time as I didn't want the thread to vanish from the "Unanswered threads" list for just my rather weak answer... but it's been a few days now... I'm no expert in this, but I don't think iPhone's present themselves as conventional USB mass storage devices like an android phone would. It'll present the camera but nothing else.

In LXDE (DE) as in Awesome (WM) i do have my HTC mounted automaticly mounted and therefore accessible from pcmanfm (filemanager).

However have a look at:
ls /dev/disk/by-id/usb*

Is it listed there?
