Shorting data pins isn't the goal and should never be done on a laptop or PC. If a charging or USB port can support faster charging it sends about 2V over the data lines to the phone which enables the phone to draw more current and charge faster. Forcing something like that on a laptop, PC, or USB plug will burn those items out trying to charge your phone. If you want faster charging then connect your phone to a high power USB power on a laptop or PC that supports it or by a USB plug that support high power/faster charging.
Check Wikipedia for the USB charging standards, I can't explain it any better than they already did.But you should not short the data ports on your PC or laptop, this is for chargers only and still only brings you from 100mA to 500mA.
Maybe he will give a best answer to Wiki...
BTW the mix-minus must have gotten discouraged and collapsed his question.
What do you mean by:
"the mix-minus must have gotten discouraged and collapsed his question"?
Downunder and I were helping Scriptom who had a mix-minus question and suddenly he deleted the thread today.
And it was easiest to mention it here to Downunder, since we cannot talk on a thread that no longer exists.
I searched on Wiki, And I still didn't understand exactly how this happens...
