Sorry for the late response, forgot I ever even posted this. I still use the modded dock to charge my phone most of the time.

Some info which might be useful:
There are 8 screws holding the dock together. 2 in each front corner and 4 along the back side, basically. Peel up the rubber on the bottom to get to them.
I was planning to switch to nicer little foam pieces for the phone to sit against on the bottom, but I got lazy and left them there. Those are the bits of red tape in the pics below. I also never removed the tape, because it's clear and doesn't bother me.
There is a magnet in the dock to help get the phone positioned right when you set it down.
@ Jamesyboy The difference between the UK (or intl or w/e) version and the US version should be limited to just the pogo pins.

Here are some pics.

Interesting desktop charger mod. Thanks for the pics. Too bad there wasn't enough room in the case to move the whole circuit board down.

What do you mean? I did move the whole pogo pin circuit board, it just overhangs the section of the dock that I moved.

Oh... Well reverse engineering, I thought the foam tape was to shift the phone up for proper alignment. So I thpoight there was a restriction inside preventing the circuit board to be shifted further down. Sorry for my bad assumptions.

Ah, gotcha. The foam pads are instead of the little tray that sits in the dock to position the phone.

Another CR-S650 Mod for AT&T HOX/HOX+
After see icingdeath88's attempt at modding the CR-S650 dock to fit the AT&T HOX, I was inspired to order the dock and make the same mods for my AT&T HOX+. It was actually a lot easier than I had anticipated because the HOXL+ POGO pins are only shifted over 1 slot. All that was needed was to drill a new hole and move the POGO board over one slot. I didn't have to cut out the entire piece like he did.

Pics and details posted on the HOX+ thread here.

Just wanted to say "Thanks!" to icingdeath88's photos. Now I also have a working POGO dock for the AT&T HOX+!

So the pogo pads on the ATT HOX+ are in another different spot? That's mildly irritating...

Glad you got a dock working too

I think the POGO pins for the AT&T HOX and HOX+ are in the same identical spot. I compared the two at the AT&T store and couldn't tell them apart physically. So if you ever get a HOX+, you'll know it'll work with your modded dock...

Neat. It looked to me like the pads were moved both down and to the side, and I couldn't get them to line up when I tried it. But if it's just moved down by one pad, then it's a lot easier to mod it the way you did.

Also, I find it funny that you had to insert two pads on the bottom of the dock to raise your phone whereas I had to shave off the two plastic tabs where you have your pads to lower my phone to get a better contact. But looks like neither one of us needs the plastic tray nor will we be able to use a case w/ our phones.

Just wished HTC had made a stupid dock for the HOXL/HOXL+ from the get-go...
