I'm looking for some help on how to get the SoundDock Portable v1 to unlock the power lines.
My intention is to draw 5V USB power via the 30-pin connector.
According to the pinout, there should be power on pins 23 (5V USB) as well as on pins 19 & 20 (12V FireWire).
But when measuring the pins (I'm using this 30-pin breakout board) of the SoundDock there is none. I suppose the dock needs a "wake-up" signal to enable the power lines?!
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.
I am unable to comment on this as this is not something Bose would recommend doing.
I would ask anyone from the Community who has tried this to share their experience and see if they can help Kyle.
