Emerson Restle: Yeah. Bluetooth adapter jerkbunmy. have another beer bro!
felipe martinez: My 2cents, because I'm so happy and grateful that I want to help a little. I wasn't able to find a resistor, so I dig a little and learn about the colors, gladly I found one in an old DVD that matched colors exactly like the one used in the video, but others will also work. Just check the colors of the one you have and if is close in value it will work (there are online calculators to match colors with ohms value). The other thing was that the audio wire I bought (not male, but female plug) had diferent wire colors (red, blue, green and copper), after some more digging I found that red=right=pin13, blue=left=pin14, and the other 2 green+copper=ground=pin 24 (I jointed this 2 together and soldered both to pin 24). I then made a hole for the female plug right next to the place to put the iPhone. It looks like if the Bose came like this from the factory.I can't find a Bluetooth adapter I once bought, but I'm pretty sure it will also work once I find it, thanks to that resistor (if someone has already tested this, please let me know).The sound is perfect.THANKS MATT MIKKA. Greetings from Colombia
Isabela fernandez: A little primitive. Now days there are 3.5 auxiliary audio in blue tooth and 30 pin blue tooth adaptors both for wireless transfer.
felipe martinez: Can i use other resistors. I'm in Colombia and haven't been able to find it. But I scavenged some electronics I have, and found several resistors in an old dvd. Some looks the same color and size than the one you used. Others are different size and color. Can I use them?Thanks for the video. Hopefully I can use my bose again.
jr260551: First of all, Brilliant. Just wondering what version of the sounddock 1 this is? I have the first version from 2004, (the one that is not capable of charging Iphone 4 etc.) Will this mod still work on my dock?
Ayaan Mittal: GUYS! The hack WORKS FOR SURE! but IMP NOTE - The correct placement for the left and right channels from the aux cable is actually opposite to that shown in the video, the video placement is wrong, RED GOES TO PIN 14, WHITE/BLACK GOES TO PIN 13! thanks for the hack though!
Ethan Lipman: I bought this cable - http://www.ebay.com/itm/112088187482 - it didn't work. The description of the cable says that it will only work with a SoundDock Series 1 V1 (I guess mine isn't a V1).
Key question... If I add the resistor across Pin 18 and 19, any idea if that will enable Audio on from this cable? Also - what size resistor should I add?
Brian Sullivan: Did this today. First time soldering too. Great video. Only thing when music is not playing there is an interference sound. Normal or how can I fix?
Julio Fernandez: gracias si me funciono solo que hay que dejar el Ipod conectado para que funcione el plug
ste w: What happened to your finger nail didn't look good and all and finger missing are you right hand u do joiner
and great mod thanks for the help
Leopoldo Mayo: The power of the case dock is 18v?
Paul Abordo: Does this apply to series 2? Thanks
Steve SOMERS: clean iron and some flux saves baking the PCB lands

iooi: iPod/iPhone old 30 pin to 3.5mm stereo adaptor is available for less than 2$. Don't vandalise your Bose sound dock people.
jean tsai: Or you just could have bought an adapter in amazon for $2
Andrew Czudak: Does this mod leave the speaker on at all times? Or only when it is receiving an audio signal? I'm looking for a way to do the latter with mine. I'm also hoping I can make it have a female Audio in rather than male, since I want to use it with a Chromecast Audio.
behrouz afrassiab: What size resistor are you using?
UPEI Business Society: Can someone explain to me in more detail what the purpose of the resistor is? What flow is being limited to "trick" the docking station, and why?
