Has anyone modded a apple 3G dock charger to fit the iPhone 4 with Bumper yet??? I plan on doing this as soon as my bumper arrives, But i wanted to see if there was any videos or pictures of anyone who currently has done it.

yea so much for the dremel idea, the dock is hollow plastic, i was careful and cut right thru the casing.

I plan on using a Rotary File (Vermont American #16671) then maybe the Dremel if need be to smooth out or something.

Just modded mine. It's not a pretty dremel job but it gets the job done. It fits well and it charges. (Btw this is my china brand one) I cut out the whole dock part, it's just the bare connector.

You could use the bare circuit board...


Or you can cut out the part I did...

Nice mod, That plastic looks easier to cut out instead of the apple dock. I'm just waiting for the Bumper so i can start on mine. Thanks for pics.
