usb data pins for charging
I want to charge my iPhone from a 5 V power source. I know I need to do something with the usb data pins so the iPhone accepts the power input.
However I´m not shure what to do. Mintyboost tells me to do this http://www.ladyada.net/images/mintyb...b4res500mA.gif
But over at webosnation I found this http://forums.webosnation.com/webos-...tone-dock.html
I have a Palm Pre wall charger that does work with my iPhone 4. It seems to me I can just short circuit the data pins and my iPhone starts charging.
Has anyone ever tried to do something similar?
