IPhone Serial Access Tutorial

[TheRain] sent in his tutorial on using the iPhone’s serial port. Apparently there’s a hardware trick required to enable two way communication. Whatever device is attached to the iPhone needs a secret handshake to get things talking both ways. Once the serial ground has been strobed high to low in the proper order, things will work like normal.

  1. Slightly off-topic, but does anyone know if there’s a way to circumvent the idiotic block on video out on iPod classics? I’m using a dock breakout box to make my own super-dock, and obviously I don’t have access to apple’s autorization chip to unlock the video out.

  2. How about a device for the touch that adds bluetooth, a gsm phone, a camera, and a mic. They could call it… The iPhone!

    Hey, some of that could actually work. Now I want one for my touch.

  3. someone has already made a mic dock for the touch, and intends to use it for VoIP through WiFi, brilliant, if you ask me, some people are always near a wifi network, so why pay for cell service?
