The Definitive Answer to the common Question:  "What is the Pin-out for a Line Out Dock for my Ipod Generation X?"  The answer is very suscinctly described - with pictures here.  This apparently works with G3 Iphones and is compatible with prior versions of the Ipod Classic and Nano.  Credit goes to forum user Good Times .  His post is in the following thread and is reproduced below:  post #160

I've just finished this and tested this on the iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G, iPod Nano and 3rd Gen iPod. Works flawlessly on all. No messages on iPhone or iPod Touch. I used a single 68kohm resistor just to make it easy. 

I think everyone can now consider this the universal solution, thank you all for your advice/input.

PS joining pin 11 and 15 can simply be done by bending the pin legs. Easier than soldering an extra jumper wire. Also, my question (re echo) a few posts up was answered by the fact that after re-inerting pins 2-4 after soldering, they had come out slightly just before gluing. I recommend not pulling them out, just soldering whilst they're in.
