Has anyone hacked an IOS cable and knows what data is going in and out of which wire. Maybe a diagram of an iphone cut cable?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, someone has hacked it and made diagrams of the pinouts. Do you have a more specific question? Which data do you want to access? \$\endgroup\$ – endolith May 17 '11 at 21:48

Pinouts.ru has a great description of the connector.

The iPodLinux wiki has a great page describing the serial protocol.

Here is the connector diagram (with the blank side of the connector facing up):

enter image description here

Pins 12 and 13 are Tx and Rx, respectively. Rx and Tx are TTL level. Pin 1 is GND, and pin 21 is serial enable. To enable the serial port, tie a 6.8 kΩ resistor to GND.

    \$\begingroup\$ @GeorgeH, can you please bring over the information from your post and explain here. Links die, but Stack exchange never will. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk May 17 '11 at 23:28
  • \$\begingroup\$ Sorry - I tried, but the pinouts.ru page has a pretty in depth table that I couldn't figure out how to bring over. \$\endgroup\$ – George May 17 '11 at 23:52
  • \$\begingroup\$ @GeorgeH, Just sharing that a good source often dies but SE keeps it data available for download regularly. If the link dies your answer does not have any substance. \$\endgroup\$ – Kortuk May 18 '11 at 0:02
