Things you need

- 4-pole 3.5mm connector
- Soldering iron
- Heat-shrinking tube
Gather the USB type A connector, as well as the 4-pole 3.5mm connector. Connect all the points between the two through the aid of the wires. These contact points are small and not easy to locate. (See References for a graphic description)
Solder the contact points with a soldering iron, making sure that you leave no space between connections. In order to cross-check the shorts between connections, use of a multimeter. To ensure a smooth operation, cross-check whether any solder has actually spilt between the contacts. In case there are traces of solder, remove them as soon as possible --- leaving them might lead to a short circuit and ruin your iPod Shuffle.
Use the heat shrinking tube as a suitable mechanism for cleaning the area completely, making the operation neat and tidy.
