This USB micro B “JIG” Dummy Plug is a small, handy device for those interested in debugging their smartphones or other devices that use the ID pin #4 for a special signal. This plug has a 300K resistor from the ID pin to ground, which can be used to resuscitate Samsung S4, S5, S6, and possibly others by putting into an emergency repair mode.
It’s also useful for other devices where you may have to trick it into OTG modes. The other pins are not connected to, just the ID and Ground pins!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
