Description: Using an iPad 3 on 7.1.2. I plug in the device and it asks to trust the computer but hitting trust does nothing. usbmuxd log shows it failing to read the xml it tries to save in /var/lib/lockdown. This continues to happen until you unplug the device. Note: This behavior does not occur with an iPod Touch 5th gen on 9.3.2.

There was one suggestion to set /var/lib/lockdown to 777 but this doesn't work either. The only thing I've found that seems to resolve it is using all the git variants from AUR (libimobiledevice-git, libplist-git, libusbmuxd-git, usbmuxd-git) (libimobiledevice-git has the old repo URL but builds fine with the new)

Additional info:
* (Repo versions) usbmuxd 1.1.0-2, libusbmuxd 1.0.10-1, libplist 1.12-6, libimobiledevice 1.2.0-4
* usbmuxd log attached

Steps to reproduce: Connect iPad on older firmware, tap trust, computer never fully trusts due to the directory issue (as far as I'm aware)
This task depends upon

I no longer have any iDevices to test.
