Default [Q] Connect to PC and charge at the same time

Is there any possibility to connect my i9505 to my PC and charge it with 2A at the same time?
Because I connected my docking station to my PC and if the screen of my phone is on, the battery don't really charges (stays approximately at the same level).

You need a custom kernel for that.
My Devices: Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) (LTE), Samsung Galaxy Tab S (SM-T805) (LTE) and Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) (Int). Love to all Googy Max kernels and to Philz Touch Recovery. <3





Please hit Thanks if I helped you!!

Ok, I don't want to trigger the Knox flag, so it seems not possible.

Any possibility to tweak the cable?

USB at pc can deliver about 500ma , does the docking station has independent power?

mate

as far as i can see there is only one usb on the docking station that you have to use for the usb communication or for usb charging ( max 1000ma)

no way you can charge at 2000 ma connected to the pc

And if I modify the cable to the pc?

It must be possible, because this docking station: http://www.dx.com/p/2-port-usb-2-0-h...3#.U_sHLfjwAuo supports charging and data transmission at the same time.
