Hey, whats up? I know I'm super late to the party, but I've been modding my xbox for the last two days (this is my first ever xbox, which I've honestly owned for two days + 1 hour), and so far I have done the following -
installed unleash x through ndure softmod hotswapping process
then reinstalled unleash x (I think) through AID, along with all the emulators and xbmc
I've got everything working fine, and besides a spoof with the new hdd, have had no real problems. But then I got to thinking. I have a Hori Ex2 controller, which uses usb, just sitting here, and a couple of slick shmups and fighters on the xbox, so I wanted to see if I could hook the Hori up to the xbox.
I followed this tutorial - http://www.xbox-scene.com/articles/usb-port.php
The only slight problem I had was when I cut my usb extender, there was a lot of lose wiring in there. To be honest, I've never screwed around with wires like this before, so it may have just been insulation (its like really thin wires, but they aren't in a rubber tube like all the other wires, though they were in the wire itself). Not knowing what that was, I taped them up just to make sure I didn't get rid of something i may still need.
So, I splice everything together, put it back in and here's where I get lost. When the xbox is loading, the green light on the Hori lights up. The minute it gets to the dash, it turns off and is not responsive. If I load up xbmc, while it is loading, it lights up, but the minute it gets to xbmc, it turns off and is not responsive. It's the same with any game or app I load. It's like while the xbox is thinking, it lights up, but the minute it does whatever it's supposed to do, it stops.
Also, I should mention I spliced this into port 4, and port 4 still works perfectly fine with my regular xbox controller.
I don't even know where to start with this. My completely uneducated thoughts are that unleashx isn't set to use a pc controller (I should also mention I've also tried with 2 logitech pc controllers, they do the same light up then turn off deal, and all 3 controllers are tested and working), I've installed the usb port wrong or anywhere in between. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Gracias.
