    TF101 Keyboard dock adapter or mod

    Hello all!

    I had a full set of TF101 + Keyboard dock goodness, until I managed to leave my tablet at an airplane seat. Now I'm stuck with the dock only. I bought a Galaxy Note 8.0 as a replacement and have no further use for the dock, so I was wondering if there's a way to modify the dock or use some sort of adapter to use the keyboard as a standalone device which I could use to write and power another device.

    The first thing that came to my mind was some sort of adapter that I could plug to the male connector in the dock, and then plug a usb connector to it to use the OTG functionality of my new tablet. Does such a thing exist? or is there a way to mod the keyboard to accomplish this?

    I think it would be great if it could be done, since the keyboard is sturdy, well spaced, and with a nice backup battery inside of it! Does anybody have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum

    Unfortunately the dock is pretty useless if it doesn't have it's tablet too.

    ^^^^^ Good idea - the dock is not customisable in the way described. Neither has anyone ever posted pinouts anywhere to enable the fabrication of a custom cable.

    In short - can't be done.

    Thank you all for your quick responses!!

    I guess you're right and the best choice is to sell the dock and look for an alternative.
