    I have an iPad 1 (running 5.1.1). I have a dock connector -> HDMI cord.

    If it helps, here are the specs on the cord I'm using: http://www.flickr.com/photos/100470807@N06/9918602966/

    I have gotten mirroring to work. Without resupported, I can get mirroring to work (a message pops up from displayout telling me that a display is connected, and it successfully mirrrors), but it only successfully works for 1:42. After that, it tells me that the display has been disconnected and THEN gives me the "This accessory not supported by iPad" message. So I know the cord I'm using is an older one that is no longer supported. Long story short, resupported 4+ will not work on my iPad 1 and the HDMI cord. It won't. And TVout 2 doesn't enable old cords. Leave that as a fact and move on, please.

    My question is what can I do to mimick the function of Resupported? Clearly installing Resupported changes some setting or text in a file. Is there any way to manually replicate the function of Resupported in the filesystem, enabling the use of unsupported cords?

    1. Use DisplayOut instead - it does support all kinds of cords, incl. the composite / component ones. See http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1589992 for more info.

    2. why bother with TV / DisplayOut, in the first place? It's VERY easy to make all A4-based iDevices mirror their screen over HDMI. See section "8. So, you Don't Want to Enable Native HDMI / VGA Screen Mirroring On Your A4 Device?" in my-linked above tutorial.

    I've used display out. It seems you once again missed my point. I'm not having trouble getting it to mirror. I've done that a long time ago. The problem is with the cord I'm using. WHY, tell me WHY I would post a thread about ways to mimick the function of RESUPPORTED 4+ when the real question is how to mirror? I clearly stated that I already have mirroring working.

    hi I have the exact same problem with my hdmi cable. it connects for 1 minute or so and then says 'device not supported'.

    When i install resupported 4.0+, it get even worse. nothing happens when I plug in hdmi, not even for a short minute like it did before i install resupported.

    I want a solution very badly
