    This is not the same problem as the earlier post today from the guy getting this message in error. I have a car hook-up that uses the dock connector into my CD changer and it works just great. It was originally for an older iPod so it doesn't charge my iPhone 3Gs but I'm OK with that.

    Every time I plug in however I get "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone". I know it's not made to work with iPhone, I understand what it's telling me and I'm happy with that - is there some way to permanently dismiss this message?

    I have the same issue with my Logitech speakers.

    I've been looking for a fix for this for at least a month now and haven't found anything yet. I just bought the iHome iP9 and constantly get this message when I dock my phone, even though it says that it "Works with iPhone" right on the box! Talk about annoying.

    Fixing "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone" pop up

    1. go to and download http://www.huanix.com/iapd (direct download)

    2. SSH to iphone and navigate to this /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/IAP.framework/Support/

    That's it.

    sure I am tempted to try any hack right away...
    but as I got a stable jailbreak and avoid all updates from Apple
    don't want to screw my iPhone and being forded into
    restore to latest FW :(
    that's why I need to b sure

    Is it safe?

    If you're jailbroken, check out Popup Blocker in Cydia, best $0.99 spent EVER!

    Fix it without SSHing

    Well, i have tried all kinds of hacks i could find on forums
    even restored iPhone to a custome 3.2.1 FW but the popup
    was still appearing ....
    but than one day after a month of struggle it just dissapeared
    and all was fine with sound ???!!!

    I have No idea what was the problem --- I suspect it was the humidity or dust
    in my iPhone dock ( where u plug in the charger)

    Try to carefully inspect it and clean it with dry air or something
    donno why Apple made it open and prone to collect dust from the
    pockets and humidity?
    now I am extremely causious with it and looking for a iPhone case that can close the dock whole comepletely when not charging...
    anyone knows any brands, models?
