Just did a mod on my Droid X dock. Hd to open it, remove the HDMI connection, and move the USB plug farther to the left. Unfortunately I can't fond a Droid 3 dock, but had 2 of these around

I recently got a new Droid RAZR M and wanted to use a dock, quickly found out there were no real options but came across this thread on how to mod the Droid 3 dock, luckily I had one already, mod took all of 10 minutes.
Good stufff

Awesome, thanks for posting this info! Ordered a D3 dock, did the mod in no time, and it works great. In fact, the audio out via USB seems to sound better than the other options I was trying (through headphone jack or bluetooth to receiver). Exactly what I needed for a stereo dock solution.

Great idea. I purchased and modded one. However, the dock doesn't seem to be charging my phone, even though it recognizes 'dock mode'. Is there some OS setting I must enable/disable to get the dock to charge my phone?

Check the USB charger and cable and that you didn't dislodge anything in the dock, should just work. I also found that the D3 car dock works well too, only issue is pause audio on disconnect doesn't seem seem to work with docks.

It's not a setting that needs changing. Out of the 4 docks I modified, 2 give me a little trouble and I have to gently rock the phone back and forth a little bit to get charging to start. You may not have the USB connector quite "high" enough in the dock to seat correctly into the phone. Depending on the dock you modified, if it has an insert to compensate for extended batteries (like the Bionic docks did), try removing it.

Thanks bunches for the post. Just curious, I see a Droid 3 HD dock on amazon. Is that the right one? Just haven't seen anyone mention HD...

Thanks again!

That would be the dock. It's HD because of the HDMI out on the dock
