I just got a new macbook as an early Christmas present, unfortunately when i connected the phone, itunes doesn't detect the iphone at all, but it does charge. I downgraded and installed itunes 7.5 but that didn't help at all. I read somewhere to try holding down the power button and home button and connecting it, putting it in recovery mode. When I tried that itunes suddenly detects the iphone but asks me to restore the phone. I'm assuming this means that the phone will restore factory settings and wipe everything. My phone is jailbroken and unlocked so that's not really an option. Does anyone have an ideas about what I can do? It sucks that I have to get out the old macbook pro every night to sync up with itunes to get all the podcasts I listen to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
