With Apple's new Lightning connector, the company introduced a new authentication chip that would hopefully help prevent unauthorized accessories. iPhone5mod is now claiming to have "permanently" cracked said authentication chip, allowing them to produce accessories that won't pop up warnings.

Without the authentication chip, unauthorized accessories cause warnings to pop up on the user's device. These warnings warn that the accessory is not a certified device. The firm now has three Lightning cables and two iPhone 5 docks. These devices are also compatible with the new iOS 7 operating system.

They've released a video as proof that the cables work without the annoying warning:
