By the way Troy, it would be nice to get credit for something I told you how to accomplish...


What? Every time? I gave you full credit at least twice. Did you take the photo? did you think of using the extension in place of the expensive bb cable? No to all I think, but if it worries you take out a patent.

there are 2 cables

 

charge only with 2 wires

 

cahrge and USB communitaction with 4 wires


No, theres three, theres the modified special cable described above which actually works. A 2wire or insulated 4wire will not do this.

 

I should point out it was invented by chaosdivine by his own hand without any help from crackberry, and patents pending (tm)

Looks like a good idea, but I tried it and it didn't work.
