HACK MOBILE USING USB CABLE
This instructable is demonstrating to utilize the energy of the USB PORT of the PC or tablet rather than batteries.
Bunches of devices are made for the USB PORT these days, lights, ventilators and little vacuum cleaners.
Why not attempt to make something amusing yourself, utilizing the USB?
This instructable low tech, requesting your innovator and originator abilities more than hardware. Also, no programming!
We will take one of these devices as a beginning stage (they are exceptionally modest, 1-2 euro’s) and make something exploratory out of it, showing the paper catch rule. It resembles having an extremely shallow dream contrasted with working with programmable chips and sensors and complex wiring employments. (HACK MOBILE USING USB CABLE)
Items You Will Need:(HACK MOBILE USING USB CABLE)
A piece of Cat-5 cable, length you desire
Extra USB connectors that come with a 6-in-1 type cable (if you ever had to purchase one like me, you probably have at least a couple you have absolutely no use for)
Razor knife (careful!)
Soldering iron and solder
Wire Strippers (optional)
Basic electrical meter (not pictured)
I decided to make my own cable to 2 reasons: 1, I always make my own cables when I can (the one I bought that came with the connectors was about $15, yikes!), and 2: Cables never seem to come in the length I need. I always want a longer or shorter than you can buy (most USB cables are 6ft long, this one I made is 10ft long).
Harvesting the Male and Female Ends:
I picked 2 of the connectors that I had absolutely no use for, couldn’t even tell you what they might fit. Then carefully (to preserve the usb end) used the razor knife to remove the plastic around the connector part I didn’t need. I then use the knife tip and small pliers to peel away the metal housing for the unused connector, exposing 4 wires. I cleaned these up as best I could, and proceeded to step 3.
Preparing the Cat-5 Cable(HACK MOBILE USING USB CABLE)
Cat-5 ethernet cable is generally fairly cheap, and I like it because it comes with 8 conductors (wires) and since it’s solid wires (instead of stranded), solders beautifully for whatever I need, and small enough for all my mini-electronic experiments. We will only need 4 of the 8 wires, so to make it simple, I kept only the solid wires (blue, orange, green, brown) and removed the stripped wires, on both ends of my cable. I then stripped about a cm of the ends, just enough to solder to. I took a large piece of heat shrink tubing and slipped it over the body of the wire, and took a smaller heat shrink tube and quartered it, placing a 1/4 on each of my 4 colored wires.
attach it using solding tool:
For the first connector, it doesn’t really matter what color wire you attach to what pin of the USB cable. We will ensure before attaching the other end that it’s all right. In retrospect, I would have used my shorter-wired usb plug on this step as it doesn’t matter, but you know what they say about hindsight… Regardless, if you are a neat solder-er, you can make all your connections, then turn the plug upside down so the smaller heat shrink covers the welds. Heat gun/blow dry to shrink, ensuring all connections are fully insulated from each other. You want NO chance that these wires might cross later, or your cable will be worthless. Use electrical tape if necessary to ensure good insulation, then slide the large heat shrink over the whole mess, and heat it up to tidy everything neatly.
Finish the Other End:
Before you can finish out the other side, you have to make sure you are connecting the right wires in sequence. To do this, I used the electrical trick called “ohming out the line”. Using a meter, set it to the Ohm (greek Omega character) setting, ideally the setting that sounds on connection. You can test this by touching the 2 leads of your meter together. They will either make a noise, or if that feature is not on your meter, make the needle jump or numbers go crazy, indicating a closed circuit.
I plugged the female end of my usb cable into my already completed male end, and while holding 1 meter lead on an exposed wire from my female connector, touched each of my colored Cat-5 wires in turn until it made a noise. I then knew these 2 should be soldered together. So as to eliminate confusion, I went ahead and soldered each pair as I matched them so I wouldn’t forget. Once finished, I took turns touching my terminals to every possible combination of wire connections to ensure I did NOT hear the noise (each should be fully isolated, and not ‘ohm out’, or that would indicate a crossed wire or short somewhere, not a good thing). Once satisfied, I completed my heat shrink tubing as I did on the original end.
Test It Out!
USING USB CABLE (HACK MOBILE USING USB CABLE)
Following quite a while of huge connectors, 24 or even 36 PINS, there was the USB connector….
Little, pleasant, clean, plan!
This USB connector configuration, contrasted with these dinosaurs makes the USB baffling, about blessed. I never set out to open it up! Be that as it may, then you cut some expired mouse and what do you see: really the USB is only 4 wires:
Yet, this “outline” USB accompanies a cost, in the event that you need to interface a chip, or an Arduino, utilizing the Serial PORT to the PC, you require an additional FTDI chip, where “typically” you could utilize RX, TX PINS…

WHEN YOU JOIN THIS CABLE TO YOUR CHARGER, YOUR CABLE STORE ALL MOBILE DATA IN THIS WAY YOU HACK OTHERS MOBILE PHONE USING USB CABLE.
THIS INFORMATION IS QUITE EASY TO DO.
PREVENTION’S FOR THIS.
- THE HACKERS MAINLY USE THIS TECHNIQUE IN MARKET PLACES .
- DO NOT CHARGE YOUR PHONE IN ANY MARKET PLACE LIKE MALL, STATIONS.
- MAINLY IN STATIONS GUYS CHARGE THEIR PHONE THAT’S WHY THEY WERE HACKED.
- WHEN YOU CHARGE YOUR PHONE IN MALL OR IN ANY STATION SHUT DOWN YOUR PHONE TILL FULL CHARGE.
- MAKE A PIN PASSWORD OF YOUR PHONE (EXAMPLE-123456) THAT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO HACK.
- DO NOT UNLOCK YOUR PHONE WHEN YOU CHARGE YOUR PHONE IN ANY STATION.
- USE POWER BANK.
- CHARGE YOUR POWER BANK TILL IT FULL.
- BE AWARE FROM HACKERS.
