Troubleshooting an OS X iOS device recognition problem

There's a bug in OS X 10.6 ("or later") that can make an iOS device unrecognizable:

I'm sure a fix is coming. The tech note is worth tracking though because of the sequenced steps in the recommended fix. It's basically a full iTunes uninstall ...
  1. delete
  2. delete iTunes
  3. delete AppleMobileDevice.kext
  4. delete MobileDevice.framework
  5. reinstall iTUnes
Might come in handy for future obscure sync related bugs.
