PostSubject: How To Make A Modded Controller   Tue Nov 23, 2010 8:40 pm

First off you will need, A TT9 Torx Driver (TT8 may fit better, I only had a TT9) A Small Push Button Switch Some Thin Wire, Such as IDE Cable An Xbox 360 Controller (Wired or Wireless, it works the same) Soldering Equipment A Drill and Drill bit (To match the diameter of the thread on your switch) Some form of surface to work on. (I chose a window ledge, I suggest…)

Taking the battery out unlocks a BONUS SCREW ! There are 7 screws to remove, so grab that Torx driver and twist! (Anti -Clock-wise) With the buttons facing DOWN , separate the two halves carefully, paying attention to the motors

Find the best place to put your switch, choose very carefully, as once you've drilled, its staying on your $60 Controller! Once you have found the right place, place the two halves back together and see if there is enough room for your switch to go in. If there is, well done. Remove the board so that it doesn't get damaged, then put the bit in your drill and ~~deface

Plug it in, Plug it in.
Put the switch in your new hole. Make sure that you orient the pins so that they are not getting bent or squashed when the controller is back together. I had to remove some of the motor holder to fit my switch in

Soldering Time
Fire up the soldering iron, not too hot or else it might break some components. Point one and two are in pictures 2 and 3 respectively. An final overview is in picture 4. 5 and 6 show the switch. 7 shows what happens when your iron is too hot and you take too long to make a joint. Make sure wiring runs stay clear of the black button pads, analogue stick moveme

Put That Back!
Are the switch pins going to make contact with anything on the other half of the controller when reassembled? Are all of the wires free from places of movement or screw holes? Are the solder joints correct and not dry? Are all of the annoying black pieces of the controller back on their positioning pins? (they are annoying as they have a habit of coming off

If you are having trouble putting it all back together, try wigging it while applying gentle force, and make sure all wires and button rubbers are not obstructing anything.

This works because to light the LEDs (on some boards with the crystal described in the intro), the Xbox uses PWM. Which means pulsed width modulation. Basically, it send the electricity to the light in pulses, so this mod uses them pulses to pulse the power into the trigger, making the Xbox think you are pressing the trigger really quickly
