John from LinuxSlate.com figured out the Dell Streak connector for sync and charging is nothing more than a PDMI connector.Â So John made a nice little USB hack to eliminate the need for Dell’s expensive accessory kit in exchange for a quick DIY mod with a miniUSB cable.
The USB hack allows you to connect the Dell Streak to a PC for synchronizing with your computer, or simply charging the device from any USB charger [or port].
The modification also allows the unit to appear as a normal mass storage device or removable memory.
