Default [Q] How is dock mode triggered?

I've seen multiple methods of dock mode being triggered on Android devices recently. Some are using multiple magnets and some are shorting out pins 4 and 5 on the USB connector.

Can anyone elaborate on how it is activated on the DS7?

It's triggered by bridging some pins on the Dell 30 pin connector.

I dont know which pins they are (as the connector is mostly undocumented, or just as much the 3rd party connector makers havnt documented it) but the pins might be for that specific purpose.
