Take 1 wireless controller, complete with instructions...wooooooo
And Set the channel on recievr and controller to the same number ive choose "2"
add a few batteries
And plug into your xbox and test, this serves 2 purposes 1, you know if the mod dont work its your fault, it helps to remind you why your doing this mod, that huge and ugly reciever. Ok on to the good stuff.
turn your reciever upside down and remove the 4 little screws you see.
and peel of the top half of the case

throw it all away, you dont want to see that again. Now cut the controller jack off as close to the end as possible and examine your handy work, yay a broken reciever with some coloured cables. What now?
Turn it upside down. fun Aye?
What we want to do next is to cover the whole of the bottom side in a layer of electrical tape. this is for insulation

ok now strip about a cm of the end of each cable and attach extra cable to each end, making sure its stripped at the other end. you should make this as long as your xbox is - plenty of room for postioning. Attach securely and electric tape.
Heres the picture of the first time i did this. you see the reciever is attached right to the bca end of the case, behind where the dvd drive goes.
Ok so carefully snip the cables coming from the port you want your wireless controller to be on. In the picture i am doing port 2 and you can see where port 1 was originally cut for my first mod.

find a good place to position your reciver i found that a good trick is to look for a component that has almost the same height as the tallest part of the reciver and back the reciever onto that. Make sure you dont place it over a screw hole! you can see where i placed my reciever.
Now the cable that we left unnattached, the grounding cable needs to be attached securely to a point inside the xbox that is grounded such as the metal sheeting. The Red is grounded from my first reciever and the yellow from number two. I have wrapped the cable around the sheeting and then elctric taped both sides.
Neaten the whole thing up and secure all the wires.
Re-assemble your whole case and sit Back. Enjoy falling in love all over again.

Erm...No not exactly lol. I hardwired a wireless reciever inside my box, why would i make a wireless controller wired?
And whats with the sarcastic "w00t1" i know your l33t and love your h@k0r spk but grow up.
Hell yeah. Good luck let us know how it goes.

Thats what i was wondering, there is a tutorial on this somewhere, but i cant find it, so im not going to look, but i dont think it was as in depth as this
Posted 28 September 2005 - 03:52 PM
it may of been my original tutorial I made the first time I did this. I couldnt find a tutorial for it anywhere so I just went ahead and guessed at what I was doing, using the knowledge I'd gained from here, there and xbox-scene.com lol

Other than that, good work.
The only two things I don't agree with are taping the ground to the shielding and cutting the controller port out. Cheap, unprofessional shortcuts, if you ask me. Then again, it works, right? The correct way to do it would have been to get a relay and install it so that the wired controller ports turn on when you plug a controller in, or even a switch.

Spam much? Sorry, I really wouldn't normally do this, but he's said almost this exact same thing to like the last 8 topics..
Edit: It is a good job on the tutorial though, I probably should've said that..
