Basically what you're going to want to do it trim back the plastic on the male wire to expose the individual wires a bit more, clip, strip, tin and set the male socket aside. Then remove port 3/4 from your xbox, make note which one is actually port 4, crack open the metal shielding from around the port, de-solder all 5 wires (red, white, green, yellow, black) making note of what wires went to what pin.
Next, take the wires that you just de-soldered from the xbox port and match them, color for color, to the male wire coming from your hub. (center left in your picture.. above the sanded port) Plug it back in to the mother board, turn your xbox back on, put a UBS device into every slot, one by one and test to see which one should be routed back to port 4. (your xbox should tell you what you have plugged into what port depending on what dashboard you're using)
Once you figure that out, de-solder the wires from the female end of the USB port (from the hub) and re-solder them (back to port 4), using your notes... or better yet a picture.
That should do it... If you want to sacrifice port 4 to have 4 USB ports, that's cool, but now you should have 3 available USB ports to work with.
My hub that I'll be using today will be a little different but the basic concept will be the exact same. The tutorial should be up later today.
I hope that helped and if there is anything that I left out or made a mistake on that another member can correct, please do so to help our brother out.
P.S. That looks to me like a self powered hub. If it has a socket for external power make sure that you never exceed +5v. My first hub install, a hundred years ago, I made a crucial mistake by routing +12v to it and it blew up a controller that I had just bought. (not literally but the rumble motors went berserk, the controller popped and it never worked again)
