Is there a cydia package to allow my ipod to charge on all chargers?

Asked by XOIIO (18251points) July 3rd, 2010

I’ve gotten the “Charging is not supported on this accesory” message a few times. I know that video and audio out connectors have an apple authentication chip and there is a package to let all mof them work, so is there one for chargers?

Not sure I understand your problem, but I just bought (hasn’t arrived yet), a Griffin Charge Convertor for my iPod. But I will be using it with my Griffin sound system. Shop around for whats called an iPod/iPhone charge convertor. It sits on top of the existing dock, and allows newer model devices to charge through the dock. Hopefully this helps.

@rpmpseudonym Yeah, I’ve heard of those, I was just wondering if anyone had heard of a cydia package that would work.

Pins 18, 19, 20, and 23 are probably not wired in the accessory. I could see them doing it so they don’t have to step-down the power in the accessory. Pin 23 is USB power and would need to be dropped to 5 VDC. While not a hard thing to do I could see companies doing it to save the 50 cents. You could always take a multimeter to the accessory and see if it is outputting voltage on those pins. 19 and 20 should be outputting 12 VDC.

Ah. That seems to make sense.

Although one time it made the chime sound and started charging, then cut out and popped up the messgae.
