    You need a Y connector. I haven't seen any, but I've heard that some companies make them.

    Allready have one and even with nothing else connected it does not charge but it does work on other phones. Even with wireless charging as soon as you plug something it stops charging.

    LAME, hopefully it's just a software problem

    I have to confirm that it most probably is a software thing. I'm testing CyanogenMod and although it does not say charging in the lock screen you can see it charging in the battery icon and I got a 100% charge using this cable.
