Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Well, this is a welcome surprise for those of us waiting for Ubuntu 10.04, the Lucid Lynx. Several users are reporting that their iPod Touches and iPhones (including the 3GS) work in alpha 3 - without tweaking, without jailbreaking, without patching - with Nautilus and Rythmbox.

I found this recently: http://giagio.com/wiki/moin.cgi/iPhoneEthernetDriver

iPhone USB ethernet drivers. They work great as well. I hope they make it into lucid.

My initial impression is that these tethering drivers work without making any modifications to the iPhone itself (the page that was linked to literally says that exact thing). Weird that they wouldn't have direct USB access to the 3g modem locked down...

I do not think any of these new features require jailbreak. The idea is to have iphone support in linux working natively, without modifictaion to the phone, same way you do in windows and mac.
