I recently came into possession of an xKey for the 360, but it's a first revision xKey and has the Flexible Flat Cable, rather then USB all the way through.

Im missing the USB dongle, but it LOOKS like from pictures that it's simple a passthrough to the USB port. Can I simply splice the FFC cable into a USB extension cord I have? Will it work the same or is there some other special stuff on the inside of that dongle that would prevent that?

If it's possible to simply solder up a USB cable to where the FFC cable starts on the xKey board, does anyone have any pinouts for the xKey board?

Any help is greatly appreciated guys!!!

Hi there Mr Red Ring Sting,

I don't believe you can do that, the ribbon cable you have is 8 pin, usb is 4 pin prior to usb 3.0 which is 9 pin.

If the usb dongle is the same as the dongle on the x360dock, then inside is a small pcb. So if thats the case you'll definitely need to acquire one in order to get it to work.
