Did this video help you?

nebojsa1976: I have a problem with my sounddock going into sleep mode after 30 minutes (I don't have remote). If I put that resistor, would that take care of the problem of going to sleep? I don't use ipod or iphone for music. I only use AUX port (with AUX port if there is no music coming after 30 minutes, it will go to sleep and every time I want to listen to music I have to turn up the volume.

Manuel Bustamante: Hi Matt. Excelent video. thanks. I did everything like you, but I must to Connect an IPhone to the port to listen the music form my Samsung. If I remover the iPhone, the music from my Samsung stops. What can I do?.
Can I Use a 2,200 Ohms Resistor or two 1,000 ohms resistor
How many watts the resistor is?

Manuel Bustamante: Hi Matt. Excelente video. thanks. I did everything like you, but I must to Connecticut an IPhone to the port to listen the music form my Samsung. If I remover the iPhone, the music from my Samsung stops. What can I do?

Murray Pattenden: I have installed the line in jack that works but the resistor does not trick the dock to turn on without a 30 pin ipod, ipad or iPhone. Any ideas of what I can do? I used a 2.2K resistor. my circuit board looks slightly different that the video. Is it possible that the pin number is different. Can someone tell me what pins to use in the 30 pin socket and I can try to solder to that. Thanks.

Nisar awan: I lost my remote anyone send me

Olliver Aira: Its incredible people dont know what a AUX port is nowadays xD I went to the most popular tech store in the city asking for one and they knew it as "headphone jack - cable". And they are educated within common tech knowledge

pedrohugofc: Thank you very much... You gave life to my Bose again!!!

Elver Sincelejo: Muchas gracias matt. Gracias a ti pude volber a usar mi bose . Thank u matt . Ur the best. Xoxo...

Optimus Prime: Pin 13 - Right Ch (Red)
Pin 14 - Left Ch (White)
Pin 19 & 20 - 2.2K OHM Resister
Pin 24 - Audio Ground (Both Channels

Christopher Soprano sculptor: Brilliant!!!! Thanks for sharing.

VincenzoPentangeli: Does anyone have a version one (first generation) with a cable that works and the cable still available (preferably on amazon)?

ASHISH ROHAJ: Matt.. thanks so much for tutorial. it amazing. it was so easy and so thorough, I could make the Dock work with Aux and a Blackberry finally... Thumbs up man..

VoicedSword: I saw another video of a guy just bypassing all that and wiring an audio jack directly to the speakers, my question would be do you get the same performance with that? I'm not very good at soldering,

Sebastian Rogers: Awesome how to for the lazy people out there heres an adapter... http://m.ebay.ca/itm/Black-8-To-30-Pin-Audio-Adapter-for-iPhone-5-5s-5c-iPhone-4-Docking-ihome-Bose-/262872292560?hash=item3d3468dcd0%3Ag%3APqUAAOSwT6pVnsuR&_trkparms=pageci%253A375e471e-0018-11e7-96cf-74dbd18058d7%257Cparentrq%253A946eb0bb15a0a9c558ebaabdfff419f3%257Ciid%253A5

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!
