    So with the new software upgrade comes the feature that if there are no headphones plugged in, the ipod assumes it is connected to a dock connector

    Now, the sensor that detects if headphones are plugged in has broke, And I figure that if I can somehow disable this new dock connector deal, i can listen to my ipod through headphones. I think this is true because when they are plugged in and I play music There is very faint volume.

    Help?

    Before jumping to the conclusion that your hardware is malfunctioning, take into consideration that maybe your software is failing, and maybe a restore is required. Also, check your headphones to see if it is those that are failing.

    If it truly is your hardware, maybe try taking it to Apple, and seeing what they can do about it.

    I'm not "jumping to conclusions" here

    I know it's the hardware. The headphones work great and I restored.

    It's also out of warranty, GJB, you're a dev, couldn't you find a way to make the ipod always think headphones are in the jack?

    Thanks

    Or you could just take it to Apple and have them fix it, since it's a hardware defect.

    He said his warranty has expired.

    Since your headphone sensor has broken the only thing I can propose you do is see if you can replace the sensor yourself. If not, your outta luck.
