    I'm not trying to hack the iPod... just the adapter. I just want it to act dumb and let the iPod do all the controlling. It draws it's power from a seperate input that's spliced into the receiver's power. So, all I would need to do is according to Enak:

    Basically you need to hack the cable (disconnect the serial) and modify the Bus connector to emulate the aux in adapter...
    I know the adapter has firmware loaded, because otherwise the iPod wouldn't know to display "Pioneer" on the screen when it's hooked up. Makes me wonder if blanking the firmware somehow would give me the desired results.

    If not, I want to figure out how to wire it up to where it bypasses the "firmware" part. I just like this idea because it's better, cleaner, and I don't have to sell anything. Would a picture of the internals help figure out how to do this?

    BAM I know I'm bumping an old thread, but thats okay because you can all call me God right now.


    I have discovered how to use the ipod controls while it is plugged into the radio. No hacks, no ******* up the ipod or the radio, nothing like that.


    Anybody interested?

    If it involves using the CD-IB100, then hell yeah. Enlighten us!

    I also found out that if you use the adapter with a receiver that's not on it's compatability list, then it'll give control to the iPod itself. That's what I'm looking for.

    Fine, God will share his knowledge with you.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    With the ipod turned on, hold down the play button. At the same time, plug it into the radio (with the car turned on, the radio doesn't have to be on however). Keep holding down the play button and the ipod will power off.

    Hit play to turn it back on again, and Bam. You might see the pioneer screen, but just hit menu and you'll be able to scroll the menus and use all the controls at full functionality for as long as you want. I have the video ipod, and even the movies play over the stereo of the car.

    Praise me.

    Pioneer should pay me.
    Kind of a pain in the butt, but I'll see if it works for me. Does it continue to work that way after you turn the car off and then back on?

    Just tried it on my 3rd gen iPod... no go. While holding the play button, I plug it in. It powers off, but immediately powers back on due to being plugged in and shows the Pioneer screen and doesn't allow me to control the iPod.

    I wonder if this has to do with the fact that yours is a video and mine's a 3rd gen.

    I lost the link to a web page posting that had a physical fix to the CD-IB100 (II) locking out the iPOD. It involved opening the box and cutting one cable. Voids the warranty but I got this for free and it is useless as sold. I don't mind using the iPOD front end and getting (1) good sound and (2) charging out of the unit. The display and ability to control the iPOD on my Pioneer Avic D2 is compeltely useless.

    EDIT: Found the link - if anyone ever needs this.

    "For those of you who bought the Pioneer Ipod adapter and want control back of your Ipod when connected to the in car system, here is how you do it with out having to disconnect the Ipod from the dock connector to pick your music.

    It will of course invalidate your warranty on the adapter but you will have control. Open up the Ipod adapter box, just two Phillips screws, you should see a connector that has all the wires going to it from the white cables coming into the box from the Ipod. Carefully pull the connector upwards to disconnect it. In the middle there should be a blue wire, lift the little peg that holds the very small socket that the blue wire is connected to and it should now just pull out. Put a bit of electrical tape around it to stop it touching any thing and put the top back on the box. Of course you do this with the power off and pull the power connecter out of the Ipod adapter.

    After reconnecting it all, you should now have full control of your Ipod to pick your music. The down side is you loose the auto stop and start when you turn the car ignition on and off.

    Iíve done it and used it this way for a few months now with no problems. Give it a go if you want."
