    Making custom cable to make DROID work in iPod dock

    I am trying to make a cable in order to charge and listen to my droid on my iPod dock. Just wondering if you guys have any advice or know if theres a better way to do this... heres my plan...

    Im going to create a cable that does 'female iPod connector --> male mini usb & 1/8" audio jack'

    [GND] Pin 16 iPod --> Pin 5 mini USB
    [5V DC] Pin 23 iPod --> Pin 1 mini USB
    [R Channel] Pin 5 iPod --> 1/8" audio R
    [L Channel] Pin 6 iPod --> 1/8" audio L

    Now the real question is do you think I could use the iPod's serial Tx and Rx pins with the 'data' pins on the mini-usb? Are they compatible? If so it would look like this...

    [Serial Tx] Pin 12 iPod --> Pin 2 mini USB
    [Serial Rx] Pin 13 iPod --> Pin 3 mini USB

    pinouts for ipod are here:
    Apple iPod and iPhone (2g, 3g) Dock Interfaces pinout and wiring @ pinouts.ru

    Thanks for any help, ill be sure to post some pictures once/if I get it made.


    EDIT*
    just noticed I called everything "mini-usb" this should be "micro-usb" in all cases

    The serial TX and RX data lines on the ipod dock connector do not map to USB data lines. USB maps to the DATA+ and DATA-

    You may be able to get it to charge and maybe play music through an ipod dock but you won't be able to skip tracks or view song info on the dock, you'll have to do all that via the phone.
