Nachimir has a good mod for the MintyBoost we sell in the MAKE store and the Samsung D*00 phone–

“Samsung D series cell phones have some problems with USB charging, which cause them to not work with the excellent MintyBoost USB charger.

This cable will enable you to charge a D series samsung from the minty (Tested: D900, Should Work: D800, D820, E780, E870, P300, P910, P920, T809, Z540, according to pinouts.ru).

The method is a little crude, but it should work for earlier D*00 models should they present similar problems. Get the right charger though; they have 18 pins out instead of 20.”Link.
