Question about Apple iPod touch
I just got a new itouch and when i plug it into my current jack in my car, it won't play my music and the screen says "accessory attached". My old nano worked fine. Please help
Now I have to start by saying that this fix I dont know if someone has done it before or if its just a glitch that seems to just work perfectly but I did it one day by accident and BEHOLD I was able to use my iPod Touch to change songs in my car stereo and that accessory attached screen was no longer there.
Important!! There is only one catch you have to have summerboard or winterboard installed on your iPod which means you must have it jailbroken first.
So get in your car and do everything you usually do... Plug the iPod in of course the dreaded white accessory attached screen pops up instantly... right?
Now press the Home button and go to wherever you have winterboard and open it. Select something or deselect something... just make sure winterboard restarts springboard while its making the change you selected or deselected and THATS IT!.... go to music or your iPod icon on your iPod touch and select whatever song album artist you want. It will continue to work that way until you shut your car engine off. Good thing about this though is that the entire process takes all of 15 seconds to do so its not a pain to do it again once you are ready to drive away again!
This also works when watching videos or you tube in your car as well as playing games... the picture/game/video will be on your iPod screen while the sound is coming from your cars speakers.
Any questions just let me know...
I hope this works as well for all of you as it has for me. I do it every time I go anywhere now! lol
