This Accessory Is Not Made To Work With Iphone
Iīm new in this forum, but no in others forums of iphone. My Iphone is week 04 of 2008. I got released, and activated jailbroken by ziphone.
Since the second day my iphone says when I swich on, or when I unlocked "THIS ACCESSORY IS NOT MADE TO WORK WITH IPHONE" " Put in plane mode ,....Yes or Not...." No matter what you put, the result is the same... Everything run ok but you donīt have audio in Ipod mode, Sms tones or Click sounds..... However the ring tone run ok.... Solutions:
Restore the firmware..............Without result
Downgrade the baseband to 3.9 ..........Without result
Restore the firmware by Itunes, run ziphonegui 2.4 , ...........Without result
Insert the headphone jack and launch the iPod on my phone and unplugg it, while the sound itīs still working by headphones..... Withouth result
Repeat the insert and unplugg the headphones....Without result
I look for any post in the forum that has already been commented this problem, but have not found anything.
I think that this problem need a fix by software, but I donīt know where can i find it.
Thanks for any help
Same thinghappened to me when I accidentally dropped iPhone to snow.
Problem is related to iPhones connector. I had mine saying all the time "this accessory.." and iPhone wouldn't turn off (It started right away on when it turned off).
I read somewhere that cleaning iPhone's connector would solve this problem - well it did!
So grab some pure alcohol or similar stuff that evaporates almost immediately when applied or some cleaning liquid ment for it and apply it inside to connector and "wank" it with original usb cord back and forth for like 10 min. (connect and disconnect your dock-connector to your phone) But make sure its not attached to ur computer nor charger.
It should work.
Hope it turns out good for you.
had that when i spilt beer and it landed on my phone's connector.
Would randomnly give me that message. got a bit annoying.
dried it up with a hairdryer and it worked after plugging in the USB in and out a few times.
have you dropped it or spilt anything on it?
i had the same problem, I sent it in for repair and was told i need a new usb port and all the other stuff that is connected to it, it was gonna cost 189.99 to fix. I ended up just buying a new one
Yes I cleaned it with alcohol and with a clean-contacts without result. In others forums the apple support only give a solution: change the unit.
Itīs very curious, when I put the iphone in his dock ( only te dock, without usb cable...) and work the ipod, you can listen the music. But when I draw the iphone, the music listen about 30 seconds, and then appears the message " THIS ACCESORY IN NOT......" and then the music doesnīt hear.....
If I live in United States I will go to a apple service, but i live in Spain and here ther isnīt warranty.
Thanks Mors and jugih. I thought too that it was a problem of the cable or the dock, but I donīt know.
Other solutions....????? thanks to everybody
I tried but...
This morning i tried to do this fix but it dosenīt work
I was very attentive to details, but nothing.
I have been having this issue for about 6 weeks now (of course it has to start about a week after I realized I was past the one-year mark to purchase Applecare).
I've gotten caught in the rain a couple of times and it's possible the phone got wet enough to cause some damage to the dock connector. I have tried cleaning the dock port very carefully and thoroughly with a sewing needle and some electronics contact cleaner, as well as applying gentle heat with a hair dryer. These operations seemed to reduce the frequency of the message, but did not resolve the issue.
Some days, the message literally pops up every 15 seconds, which drains the battery rapidly, and disables the sound until you unplug/replug the headphone jack. Obnoxiously intrusive.
About 30 minutes ago, I installed the iapd file from post #127 in the Macrumors link above (following the instructions in post #128). So far so good!
More than 24 hours later, I haven't seen a single 'this accessory is not made to work with the iPhone' error!
Not only that, but my battery life is back in a big way. Thank God.
Done the same thing, it works! Almost as smooth as it was under 1.1.4.
