Solution could be in restarting udev daemon/service, according to this 

# service udev restart
# systemctl restart udev.service
as root

It also explains how to compile mtpfs, but I think Fedora 16 already had 
newer libmtp package.

So Rock, try running those to commands instead of rebooting entire 
system. If that works, you can create 2 scripts, one to install newer 
libmtp and restart udev, and other to revert it back.
