    Has anyone ever heard of someone creating a USB controller for jailbroken ipod touches? The idea would be to use the dock connector to USB cable that came with the ipod and a adapter to make it female to be able to plug in various USB devices. Has anyone heard of anything like that being done? Ultimately it would be cool to be able to plug in my Huawei 3g USB modem and have mobile internet on my touch without having to tether it to my laptop.

    Just a thought...

    sorry OP, but i'll answer OOSvo's question. Its called internet sharing, basically you take the ethernet connection from the computer, and use the wifi card inside the computer to broadcast a signal, which you can then connect your ipod/iphone to. do you run a PC or Mac?

    i was looking for the same thing, a usb connector, but to attach to my camera. I cant stand using itunes to sync anything, especially photos, and all the itunes-alternatives either cost money or can sync photos, only music.

    I googled it, and they have a special connector for ipod photo, but it doesnt work on the touch (yet)

    So, I guess that's a no then... I realize this idea is a long shot as it would take a whole lot of effort, but the fruits yielded could be very cool. Imagine being able to plug a USB stick into your ipod, or a full size keyboard, or hell, since apple wont do it, we could get a camera on the ipod touch... I know, I know... way too crazy to even fathom...

    that looks really cool, like turning your ipod into a PSP (good for games).

    but as for other USB gadgets, it wouldnt work. i would even love just an SD card reader to be able to connect!

    the only other thing i know about is that they're working on a way to connect an ipod to the wii, but i don't even know if it's ipod touch-supported.

    Hey i lke ur idea but no it can not be done. People do make things that go into the ipod dock, for instance the Emulators, well theres a few things for the games we play with those, like once i saw this guy madea whole GameBoy controller thing that went AROND his whole ipod so he could play doom
