I'm totally sick and tired to starting my VMWare and run the Windows VM, and opening iTunes every time I want to do something with my iPhone.

Is there any alternatives out there for iPhone 3G on 3.0 firmware?

I don't mind jailbreaking it.

I guess we should assume your OS is unix/linux? –  Marnix A. van Ammers Jul 30 '10 at 2:25
From this point of view - iPhone is a no-go, NEVER! –  Ice Jul 30 '10 at 7:47

You will need to jailbreak your iphone. You did not mention what flavor of linux you were using. Here is some info related to Ubuntu.

NOTE: Ubuntu 10.04 already supports the file transfer. Don't know if you need a break. Try it without that first. –  Shiki Jun 26 '10 at 12:03
