    Default [Req] App to hack Nike+iPod Sport Kit

    I purchased my iPhone to be a total replacement from all my other iPods. Yet this kit will only function with a nano so now I have to lug both around still? Now I understand why they made the Nike+iPod Sports kit exclusive to the nanos(back then), because they had a screen and ran off of flash memory which are ideal for the activities such as running since they have no moving parts.. and since the other iPods actually had spinning harddrives they didnt support them. But I dont understand why this kit doesn't work with our iPhones and Touches, because our devices also run off of flash memory... so there shouldn't be any reason why they haven't made a patch that allows the sports kit to work... infact I would think our devices would be even more ideal for use with this kit because they already have built in bluetooth and wifi, so the wireless device that plugs into the charging/data port wouldn't be required.. just a simple sync, another thing, iPhones having edge access would be able to connect to the nikeplus.com so no computer would be necessary for syncing data, and as for Touches, they have wifi so the same goes there, no computer would be necessary... anyways, they haven't done so and there is no talk of them doing so in the near future, Devs this is where you come in! Could someone please make an app that tricks the iPod Sports Kit device into thinking that it is being used with a nano? Im not sure but Im guessing that maybe a hack would also have to take place with itunes so that the data gets synced to the nikeplus.com website... sounds kinda complicated but this is something that I would really like to see happen and Im not sure why Apple hasn't done this themselves...

    Well, I wish this feature would be implemented.

    One thing to keep in mind, the iPhone is bulky, the Nano is lightweight.
    However, the biggest advantage of this for me, was that I got hit by a car head-on while running, all I had was a Nano. I wish the iPhone would support Nike+ because I would have been able to catch the guy and call the police (hit and run). Fortunately I made it and am 99.9% since then.

    However, I believe on MacRumors, this was a rumored feature of the 3G iPhone a while back. Haven't heard anything in a few months and it's certainly not in the current beta firmware. The iPhone is supposed to implement GPS with Nike+ to record your workouts. Well, we're all STILL beta testing the iPhone for Steve Jobs, so let's hope he remembers us runners in iPhone 3.0 (which I just made up, don't get ahead of me people).

    Could you really communicate the iPhone to the kit using bluetooth?
    Iīm pretty sure you donīt. But, good luck with this project, cause messing with BT will need a hard work.

    NO, i am using the transmitter of the nano, so you have to stick it to the dockconnector.
    But without the encryption key the data won't help us.

    So please guys help me and work with me

    The framework and its daemon responsible for 3rd party accessories are IAP.Framework and iapd.

    The Nike+ is already supported but it seems not activated yet.

    I'm working on patching the IAP to activate the video out without the expensive Apple Video Cable.

    If you search for Nike in the Framework and its daemon, you'll find the Sport accessory support.

    I think it will take a while to complete this project because i've just startet coding for the iphone and Objective-C ist completely new to me.
    But I've working hard on it

    tomorrow my new sportskit hopefully arrives so i can start testing.
    If someone is interested to help me please sen me a pm.
