“accessory connected” Regain control of iPod (iPhone) when connected to head unit such as car stereo systems, or third party speakers
The iPhone might consider as the second best iPod, however, it has limitations. For example, you can not delete the songs from the Music app. You can not control the music app if you connect it to the head unit such as the car stereo system, or to some any third party speaker systems; it display a splash with message “Accessory Connect”. Below, some ways you can get around with your iphone with the lastest firmware iOS 5.x.x
Not jailbroken iPhone
For unjailbroken iPhone, you can use these apps from App Store. Tested working on iOS 5.0.
Note: for some instance, you might need to close/ and open the app again for it to take over the control of the built-in iPod/Music app.

2. NoAccSplash iOS 5.x (updated)
If you’re like me then you HATE the above image showing on your iPhone or iPod Touch more than that pesky email saying your wife just overdrew your checking account 😛
If you are running a jailbroken iDevice on iOS 5.x then your in luck. I’ve written a Tweak that will make this screen go away and give you back your iPod controls so you aren’t just limited by the controls from the accessory you are using. Give NoAccSplash a try in our repo, http://beta.leimobile.com/repo/
This is iOS 5 only!! If you are on 4.x or 3.x there is a Tweak called NoAccessorySplash that will work on those firmwares. Also, send any bugs to brandon [at] leimobile.com
