Atrix lapdock + Rpi 2

Tue Nov 17, 2015 5:26 pm

Hello, im new into raspberry pi, i have looked a lot of videos then i have seen that i could modify one lapdock to make a easy and low cost mobile Rpi
About hdmi connection that is pretty easy, but the usb connection is kind of confusing me.
I need to conenct a usb cable to atrix then i should connect gnd and +5v to another end to power rpi via micro usb and the D+ and D- to a third end that go to normal usb.
That way my pi will work?
Its safe?

Edit: i find out that i was right, the +5V and gnd should go to micro usb end and the D+ and D- should be connected to standard USB end, so all i need is to do some continuity test on usb pins to find out which cable is connected to the pin and al should work.

You don't need to modify the dock. You just need a female to female usb adapter. No fuss or modification required.
