Could you post a Photo and some more info how you modified the cable?

Thank you.

Hi
I didn't modify a cable but made a new one, a combination of all the three separate cables delivered with the tablet. Used an old housing of a usb to ps2 connector to make all the connections between the cables and to mount a 9V supply connector. At house i use a 9V power adapter and in the car a 12 to 9V adapter. Look at the pinout and it's pretty forward to see what wires has to be connected. A 7 wire cable to the 30pin connector will do (combine grounds).
