    Can anyone please tell me if there's an easy way to *manually* ground the ID pin via a switch?

    I'm working on a project where I need to activate a device using this method - currently I've only been able to do this by hacking a micro-b plug & soldering a lead onto the ID pin. Is there a pre-made cable which has wires to all 5 pins?

    Thanks

    Find the ground wire. Find a suitable spst switch. Install the switch in between the lead coming off the pin and the actual ground.
