iPhone 4 charging with car stereo

by ktm450exc on Wed Sep 15, 2010 1:39 am

I have an Alpine CDE-9881. This car stereo has a integrated cable to interface with an iPod or iPhone. Having resently upgraded to an iPhone 4 I am no longer able to charge the iPhone from this control cable. Where I can plug in an iPod Nano (1st gen) and iPhone (2g) and they work normally, charging and playing and acting normal. The iPhone 4 does all that except charge, I just get a message that charging isn't allowed.

What I'm wondering is if I put resistors on the data wires like in the MintyBoost video, is that going to break being able to control the iPhone from the stereo?

Thanks for your help.
