    (if i posted on the wrong place please move, it's more about the cables not the mobile phone)



    Okay, so I'm making a hub for my phone, so i can connect my keyboard to it with a program i found around the internet, the problem is: the inner colors don't match

    1st one:

    Green
    Blue (if you are thinking about this one being black/dark blue, it is exactly this color)
    Orange
    White

    2nd one:

    Black
    Green
    Red
    White


    I know the process already, but i need to know, which cables should i connect to the ones that won't match?

    1st

    Blue
    Orange

    2nd

    Red
    Black

    I would not trust a single wire on the first cable, as they do not conform to the USB standard and might be misusing the green and white colors. Hooking up the power supply wrong could fry both devices.
    What tools do you have for electronics? Do you have a multimeter that can do voltage and resistance?

    I couldn't edit my 1st post so i'm making a new one, i opened the hub and it pointed out what i needed, Thanks for the tip though

    the 1st one is:

    white - VCC
    Orange - D+
    Green - D-
    Blue - GND

    Okay i'm hooking my keyboard to my phone, and it works

    See? You would have hooked up VCC to a data line.
