I did exchange the delivered Y cable for an upgraded ver. when the original proved to not be charging the phone.
Actually the trick was posted by someone else, in a thread I started. But you are correct. There are ways to trick the X5 into not recognizing the iPhone hence not crippling it into an iPod. And it can be done by accident (as I reported in that same thread). But IMO these tricks are too much trouble, when a <$100 dollar Kensington Y cable (w/12v adapter) works by just plugging in the iPhone, whether or not you have already blown $400 for the BMW stuff
