Okay so we've all been there. Our beloved iphone/ipod/ipad dock has been faithfully charging our device for ages when suddenly one day it doesn't want to charge anymore.
So what causes this death of our beloved ihomes? Well in most cases its the actual connection between dock and device. Over time the pins that make the connection wear down and we're left with an iPaperweight.
Step 1: What to get
We'll need a few items
1. a broken ihome
2. toenail clippers
3. a cutting utensil
4. a broken sync cable that you don't mind sacrificing or a small needle (edit: or a staple)
