I know this is highly irregular... but this is actually what I am trying to do, you understood correctly...
I have a computer running Ubuntu 11.04 which does not recognize my earphones, and I cannot get to any other headphones at this time. I want to, if possible, use the USB-to-iPhone tether to connect my iPhone to the computer and then plug my earphones into that and use the iPhone to hear the sounds output from the computer.
So kind of like the earphones were plugged directly into the computer, but not.
Is this possible?
