a lot of shaky paws later, this worked... up until i closed it and one of the pads ripped out...
no mind, i have about 4 or 5 other connectors to work with...
ugh this one is all potted
current body count
third one in this style and i still don't know how to open it without ruining the case
except this one doesn't have a pcb..
let's try the other one i have like that which is cleaner then (and the case is in clamshell style which is easily openable) and keep this as backup
as expected the cable without a pcb or resistors makes the iPod say it can't charge with it, but at least it works for super slow trickle charging and sync.
HOPE YOU LIKE HOT GLUE
i'm a bit sad that i had a working charging cable but it self-destroyed when closing up and the other one was potted (i actually tried to remove the rubber material but ripped another pad in the process so i gave up on that)
maybe one day i'll decide to waste money on another one of these cables but for now overnight charging is fine for me i guess
lol never fucking mind i mustve messed something up because the computer won't see it
oh well no new music on my ipod
do i just try swapping d+ and d-? i followed the other plug's wiring but maybe that one had white and green reversed who knows
haha suck it
i used the other plug that i kept as backup and somehow that one works for charging and sync ???????
wonder if it has resistors hidden inside it
oh wait no i took so long soldering i forgot what i actually did
i didn't swap the 30pin connector, i swapped the usb cable with another one with better shielding?
eh i don't understand how these cables work anymore
