    Hi Guys, i just got 2x Non Original iPad docks on eBay for $10 shipping include, i was able to modified it in order to fit my iPhone with the bumper.
    As you can see it looks and feels very nice, i hope some1 will come up with a product that fits right out of the box without the need to modify it.

    3 easy steps to modify it..

    1.Disassemble the unit by removing the soft back side which let us take a flat screwdriver to lift and remove the bottom plastic part.

    2. remove the 30 pin connector unit and trim the 3mm plastic that the connector sits on.

    3. get a good 3 sec adhesive and apply on the 30 pin connector bracket, hold it until it firms. i also used a glue gun in order to fill the unit from the
    inside so the connector wont get wobbly.

    That's it!

    Enjoy your new modified dock.

    Here is a short movie i took:

    Thanks. Where did you get these docks from by the way? Did it came with any additional cable? I believe in non original docks being just as fun as the real deal, but most cheap cables tend to break very easy.

    Hey, here is a link to the auction, he sold many units already and mine was in great quality for the price i paid, $5 include shipping...

    in the box is just the dock itself with no cable.

    Nice but it looks like those cushions will muffle all the sound now.
