I'm trying to work on it now, if I'm allowed.

Nah, sorry.
I updated the phone and tossed the old one, which was my template.
I'm hoping to make a Lightning version, if I ever get time.
It will definitely have "with cover" and "without cover" varieties.
Maybe just one version with adaptors for different covers ??????
I'll also use an Apple or Belkin cable rather than the odd shaped Dealextreme ones.

The speaker duct was great for music, but the wife complained about notifications and stuff coming at night,
I prototyped a few forms of "volume control" to block or open the aperture. (on the dock, not on her)
They worked well, but needed far too much Dremel after printing.
The best result came from a blob of silicon putty.

I had an idea to have a microphone duct too. Maybe good for taking calls on speaker.
Is that too stupid?

nice dock ... how about a version that's for just the phone without a cover?
