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 julio: 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

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 $2
Andrew Czudak: Does this mod leave the speaker on at all times? Or only when it is receiving an audio signal? I'm looking for a way to do the latter with mine. I'm also hoping I can make it have a female Audio in rather than male, since I want to use it with a Chromecast Audio.
behrouz afrassiab: What size resistor are you using?
UPEI Business Society: Can someone explain to me in more detail what the purpose of the resistor is? What flow is being limited to "trick" the docking station, and why?
Cleber lira: Ficou ótimo obrigado.
bash3388: Done - thanks mate, works perfectly! If you're in the UK, you might find that there are only 2 wires when you remove the covering from the 3.5 jack. If you look closely though, there will be some copper wiring running separately alongside each of the audio wires. These are the grounding wires. You can twist these together, and solder them to the grounding point. Just make sure these stay separate to the audio wires going to points 13 and 14.
Miguel Olivella Bendeck: Gracias!
IAmGaboAlejo: I bought a sound dock for around 35$, the ipod doesn't charge nor play, will I be able to use it, at least with the 3,5mm jack? (the unit beeps when plugged, and there is no physical damage in the connector, so I think it will be fine, if not I will just pass through the speakers and connect them to an amp
windshieldvipers: I did this. Worked great with a 100k resistor!
Saúl Zavala García: it works perfectly, thanks man
