    Hey everyone,

    I've been getting a popup message on my iphone saying "This accessory is not supported by iphone" lately. In this site I came across the solution which is to delete System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.accessoryd.plist.

    How can I delete that daemon? Please help!!! The solution Apple gives me is a restoration and I'd only do that if it's really my last resort otherwise I rather not.

    Thanks in advance.

    You have to be jaibroken to delete that. However, I don't believe that's your problem. You either have water damage, junk in your dock connector, or your dock connector is bad.

    Hey Aggie,

    Thanks for replying. I had already checked the dock and there was dust. Blew it, but the issue is still reoccurring. I guess my best chance is restoring it.

    Thanks again!

    Too late now, but it's better to use a brush. You still have the message?

    Maybe a restore will fix it, who knows.

    Where did you get that idea? As Aggie said, it seems most likely that you have a physical problem with your dock connector. Restoring isn't going to do anything for that.

    Restoring simply removes one of the variables...and it's not like it such a hassle to take the 10-15 minutes to do it.

    It was one of the few solutions Apple support provided. And so I restored it, didn't work. Tomorrow I have an appointment with an apple consultant for a replacement.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Check for water damage. There is an indicator in the 30 pin connector housing, beneath the middle part. Check with a flashlight, ideally a xenon flashlight.

    My iPhone 4s does have water damage in the docking port, and now my phone thinks it is docked all the time (so I can't play music, adjust volume, etc.). Would deleting this help?
