usbhid grabbing usb device before VMWare can

Found a small work-around to being able to restore the iPhone 4S firmware from iTuns in a virtual machine today.

In the past, people have been able to use the usbhid quirks mode flag to make it not grab the iPhone device before VMWare does, but for some reason, under Ubuntu 10.04, that was working.

Instead, you can unbind the device from usbhid using the syntax:

echo 2-5:2.2 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/usbhid/unbind

You numbers will vary, but can be found in your dmesg.
