Hey Guys,

I started wiring up my dongle inside my box recently but am getting stuck with the contoller port bit

Iam trying to follow: http://www.xbox-scen...-dvd-dongle.php by twistedsymphony.

I dont know where: "Notice that for each port there are three little metal tabs that brush against the square metal flashing of the respective port." (Step 2)

Ive done alot of it but am getting stumped here.


Please can someone help or explain what is supposed to be going on when its all connected, or twistedsymphony if you their please reply.


Anyone else done this mod? Thanks.

I think he is talking about the metal tabs that are left on the xbox , where the ports fit into on the xbox, if you look closely on the second picture you can see where he has put the tape, if you look at the same area on the first picture you can see the little tabs he talks about.

on the second picture the tape is right under the the BOX-S on the xbox-scene watermark

the little tab in this picture needs to be removed and then taped up so you have no contact with the controller when you put it back in.

i believe thats right, but don't forget the two that are on eash side of that same port.
basically u do not want the metal shielding to touch the controller port that you are modding.
