I'm starting on a project to convert my iPhone 4 dock into a Lightning dock. In principal, there's no reason why this shouldn't work. I looked up iFixit's teardown and found that: - It seems pretty straightforward to disassemble - The 30 Pin dock connector opening will be more than wide enough to allow a Lightning connector to pass through I may have to strip the Lightning connector but once the housing is off, it'll fit inside the dock and a glue gun will be all that's needed to keep it in place. Of course the function of the dock will be merely for charging with the original cable protruding out the back instead of the 30 pin Dock connector. The audio jack will not work. I'll post pictures when I'm done.
