rhythmbox – Music apps aren’t recognizing/syncing with my iFuse-mounted iPhone

So close to getting music syncing with the iPhone working, but still – so far! I can plug my iPhone into my machine* and mount it using iFuse. I can find the music files on my iPhone and pull them off, despite the tremendously weird file stuff iTunes did to them. But Rhythmbox and Clementine don’t recognize my iPhone as a device, so I can’t get files back onto the phone in a way Music on the phone recognizes. I could use VLC mobile but I’m partial to CS Music which pulls the file library from the Music database. Is there a way to get one of these apps to recognize the iTunes database on the phone? Thanks!
