So asus has this little utility that changes the usb settings and sends upto 1.2A to your iphone/ipad though a regular usb slot(works on non-asus mobo's too), problem is it doesn't work on any other device except apples.
Does anyone have an idea what exactly this utility changes in the usb settings?

As far as I know apple dock connector have 30pin. Will asus ai charger use the pins for firewire to provide additional power?

It uses the standard USB port so I'm hoping there is hack that will let me boost the amps to 1.0 amp in order to charge my HTC Amaze phone. I use the utility today with my iPad and it works great.

I have an ASRock motherboard and they rebranded this feature as "App charger".
This enables windows to send over 1A through the USB port and I also would like to find a trick to enable it for non apple devices.

The only way I know to charge the non apple devices faster is using a double headed USB cable that comes with some external hard drives boxes. We get 1Ah as it is getting power from two ports.

Regarding the use of this feature on other motherboards, I'm not sure if it is healthy since forcing extra power to USB ports might damage something. My vintage PII laptop sometimes complained about power surges on USB bus when I connected high powered USB devices so probably wont be happy with this.

I have the AI Charger installed.

When I connect my Xperia Arc to the computer, the phone sets the current to 1050mA at first but immediately changes to 500mA.
