After the iPhone with USB-C, there is now Android with Lightning (video)

A few months ago, we reported on the achievement. The YouTube user on Exploring the Simulation managed to hack the iPhone X and put a Lightning port on it. The equipment was fully operational. Do the opposite now.

After several requests, Ken Pillonel modified the Samsung Galaxy A51 to fit the Lightning charging port. Remember, this is Apple’s own download port. This is present in some of its products, such as the iPhone, iPad (base) or Magic Mouse.

How was that possible? According to detailed information, the biggest difficulty is destabilizing the hardware as an Apple accessory. This preventive measure aims to prevent counterfeit products.

If proper authentication is not performed on the chip inside the cable, it will not perform power and data transfer. And that way, it could never work on an Android smartphone. But in this case, it worked.

As you can see from the video above, it’s a pretty complicated process, as you might expect. But at the end of the video, it is possible to charge the Samsung Galaxy A51 Lighting with a charger.

Ken Pillonel is currently pursuing a master’s degree in robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. In his spare time, he enjoys working on 3D printing and IoT projects. He also works as a part-time design consultant.
