Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an iPod touch and I am fed up with it top-up charging when it is plugged into Xcode. Is there any way that I could stop the power output through USB without stopping the data flow?

Thanks in advance

Nominally an Xcode problem but still a better fit for superuser. –  noa Jan 3 '13 at 18:18

You could try sacrificing a cable and removing pins 1 and 4 from the USB end; these are the power connections. See Wiki –  SethHB Jan 3 '13 at 18:25
    
Is this a programming question? You could perhaps do something via the USB user client, but short of writing drivers I doubt you can do what you want. And even that's doubtful. You might try a hacked cable as suggested, although not sure what effect that would have on OS X. –  nielsbot Jan 3 '13 at 18:34
    
No Not an Xcode problem. It has nothing to do with Xcode. it's just that my iPod is plugged in and it is always getting too much charge. –  OnkaPlonka Jan 3 '13 at 18:43

Sorry, but how can it get "too much charge"? –  oefe Jan 3 '13 at 18:57
