The dock itself has a port, but the stock kernels never actually supported it.

The S5 can make use of it though custom kernels that add OTG,
the S7 could, I dont recall if the HS or ICS kernels do though.

"Ive" not been able to get OTG (Gamepad or mouse) working on HC with my DS7. Even my bluetooth keyboard/touchpad thingy I got. The keyboard works, mouse doesnt give me the icon like it does on the other androids I own. So yea that could be just Streakdroid HC there. ICS however Steve has been working on alot more in the kernel so who knows. DS5.. I havent tried yet. I just would love to know period if anyone has got a wired gamepad to work on it. Ive heard people get it working with a dongle which had its own battery to power the controller.

Is there a charger out there that will let me use the DS7 and charge at the same time.

I bought a USB cable to extend the original data/charging cable and now it charges slower than if using just the data/charging cable.

Lurch, yes, but rem this. Your adapter needs to output 1A. Most only do 500mA (Normal cell phones) If you use the 1A adapter its all fine.

[/QUOTE]Also, the S5 dock in the previous link likely wont fit the S7, that's the reason the official dock comes with 2 backplates.
Your only real choice for the S7 is the official 2nd gen dock.[/QUOTE]

You're wrong about that. I have one for my S7 and it fits perfectly. The wider base makes it very stable. You can find them cheaper on Ebay.

The generic ones dont as far as I'm aware, only the official ones do.

I managed to kill my dock adapter cord. Can anyone help me out and measure the diameter of the tip of the barrel connector and its length?

Default Dock Died?

Ok the dock comes with two USB cables..
It seems for some reason that if I plug in the cable that had the round barrel connector it shorts out the USB on my computer?
IF connected to a powered USB hub the hub quits working?

This happened this past week.. till then both were plugged into a powered USB hub with out troubles?

Any ideas as to what happened?
