Introduction: FIRST MOD FOR XBOX 360 WIRELESS CONTROLLER/HEADSET/MESSENGER KIT

HAVE YOU EVER TRIED TO USE YOUR WIRELESS XBOX 360 CONTROLLER, WIRELESS HEADSET, AND YOUR MESSENGER KEY BOARD ALL AT ONCE? WELL THEN YOU KNOW IT DOESENT WORK. TILL NOW THAT IS........

Step 1: THINGS THAT YOU NEED

THESE ARE THE THINGS YOU ARE GOING TO NEED TO DO THIS MOD.
1. XBOX 360 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
2. XBOX 360 MESSENGER KIT
3. SOLDERING IRON
4. SOLDER
5. A T10 SECURITY STAR BIT
6. A T6 STAR BIT

IT ALSO SHOWS SOME WIRE BUT I NEEDED THAT AT FIRST TO FIGURE THIS MOD OUT YOU WILL NOT NEED IT, ALSO A WIRELESS HEADSET YOU WILL ONLY NEED THIS WHEN YOU ARE READY TO TEST OUT IF YOU DID IT CORRECT.

Step 2: TAKING APART THE CONTROLLER

FIRST OFF START BY REMOVING THE 7 FASTNERS THAT HOLD THE CONTROLLER REMEMBER THAT ONE FASTNER IS UNDER THE SERIAL NUMBER STICKER.WHEN SEPERATING THE TWO HALFS YOU MIGHT WANT TO KEEP THE BACK SIDE UP SO ALL OF THE KEYS DONT FALL OUT.NEXT REMOVE THE MAIN BOARD AND MOTORS WHEN DOING THIS IT IS EASY IF YOU JUST PULL BOTH TRIGERS IT WILL JUST POP OUT.LAST LOOK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE MAIN BOARD AND YOU WILL SEE THE MOTORS HOOK UP LOCATION JUST CAREFULLY PULL OUT AND REMOVE THEM. YOU ARE DOING THIS JUST SO YOU MAKE SHURE NOT TO MESS THEM UP LATER.

Step 3: OPENING THE MESSENGER KEY BOARD

ON THIS STEP YOU WILL START BY REMOVEING THE 4 FASTNERS THAT HOLD IT TOGETHER. THERE IS NO EASY WAY TO OPEN THE MESSENGER KIT UP SO JUST POP IT OPEN WITH SOMETHING SMALL BUT BE CAREFULL NOT TO BRAKE IT OR PULL THE TWO HALFS APART TO FAR.ONCE IT IS OPEN YOU WILL SEE THAT THE HEADPHONE JACK PIECE IS BEING HELD IN POSITION BY TWO CLIPS JUST PULL UP ON THEM AND THEY WILL SLID OUT AND THE JACK PIECE WILL COME FREE.

Step 4: SETTING UP THE JACK WIRES

GO AHEAD AND UNPLUG THE JACK CONNECTER.I KNOW THE PICTURE SUCKS BUT YOU CAN MAKE IT OUT. JUST PULL OUT ON IT CAREFULLY. NOW COMES THE FUN PART NO RETURN, CUT THE WIRES OFF OF THE HEADPHONE JACK PIECE BUT DO IT AS CLOSE TO THE JACK PIECE AS POSSIBLE.THEN STRIP THE WIRES BACK JUST ENOUGH TO SOLDER THEM LIKE AN EIGHT OF AN INCH.

Step 5: SOLDER TIME

OK YOU SHOULD NOW HAVE 7 WIRES THAT ARE STRIPED AND READY FOR SOLDERING AND IF YOU LOOK AT THE BOTTOM EDGE OF THE CONTROLLERS MAIN BOARD YOU WILL SEE THE FEMALE SIDE OF THE HEADPHONE JACK. YOU WILL ALSO SEE IT IS SNAPED INTO PLACE THEN SOLDERED BY 8 SPOTS LIKE SHOWN IN THE PICTURES. TWO ON THE LEFT TWO ON THE RIGHT FOUR IN THE MIDDLE TWO ON TOP OF EACH OTHER LIKE THIS:
0 0
00 00
0 0
THE COLLOR OF THE WIRES IF YOU LOOK AT THE END THAT IS NOT CUT GOES AS FOLLOWS (WHITE)(BLUE)(YELLOW)(PEACH)(BLACK)(TAN)(PINK) AND THE WAY THAT THEY ARE SOLDERED ON IS (PEACH)(BLACK)(BLUE)(YELLOW)(TAN)(PINK)(WHITE) LOOKING AT MY PICTURES STARTING ON THE LEFT AND GOING TO THE RIGHT WITH THE LAST WHITE WIRE BEING THE CONNECTION ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE 4 CENTER SPOTS.

(BLUE) 0 0 (YELLOW)
(PEACH)THEN(BLACK) 00 00 (TAN)THEN(PINK)
(NOTHING) 0 0 (WHITE)

Step 6: TO MAKE IT FIT PART ONE

IF YOU LOOK AT THE TOP PART OF THE CONTROLLER THAT I SAID NOT TO TURN OVER RISK OF DUMPING OUT THE KEYS, ON THE BOTTOM SIDE THERE IS A DARK GRAY PIECE REMOVE IT AND IN THE CENTER THERE IS A NOTCH IN IT SO THE FEMALE PART OF THE HAEDPHONE JACK CAN STICK OUT.NOW YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT A LITTLE BIT BIGGER ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE THE NOTCH LIKE AN EIGHTH OF AN INCH DEEPER SO THAT THE WIRES WILL HAVE ENOUGH ROOM WHEN PUTTING IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.

Step 7: REBUILD

PUT THE MOTORS BACK ON JUST REMEMBER THE BIGGER WEIGHT ONE GOES ON THE LEFT.PUT THE MOTORS AND THE MAIN BOARD BACK IN THE BOTTOM SIDE OF CONTROLLER AND THEN THE DARK GRAY PIECE THAT YOU MADE THE NOTCH A LITTLE BIGGER BACK ON THEN THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CONTROLLER AND PUT YOUR SEVEN FASTNERS BACK IN.YOU SHOULD NOW HAVE AN ELECTRIC TAIL STICKING OUT LOL.

Step 8: MAKE IT FIT PART 2

LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MESSENGER KIT THAT YOU TOOK APART BEFORE IF YOU LOOK AT THE SIDE YOU WILL SEE THREE SQUARES THAT THE MALE END OF THE HEADPHONE JACK CAME THREW.CUT THE TWO SMALL BARS SO THAT YOU NOW HAVE ONE BIG HOLE.PASS THE PLUG END OF THE WIRE TAIL YOU HAD ON YOUR NEW CONTROLLER THREW THE BIGGER HOLE YOU JUST MADE ON THE MESSENGER KIT PIECE.PLUG THE END OF YOUR CONTROLLER TAIL BACK INTO THE SAME SPOT YOU UNPLUGED IT FROM IN THE BEGINNING, SNAP THE TWO PIECES OF THE MESSENGER KIT TOGETHER AND PUT YOUR 4 FASTNERS BACK IN.THEN JUST SNAP THE MESSENGER KIT ONTO THE CONTROLLER JUST LIKE IT WOULD WITHOUT THE MOD.

Step 9: YOUR DONE GO PLAY

JUST GO TRY IT OUT YOU CAN NOW TEXT WITH YOUR MESSENGER KIT AND TALK ON YOUR WIRELESS HEADSET GO HAVE SOME FUN. ALSO I HAVE LOOKED AND CANNOT FIND THIS MOD ANYWHERE IF YOU HAVE SEEN IT ELSEWHERE PLEASE LET ME KNOW ALSO I ALREADY HAVE STARTED ANOTHER MOD FOR THE XBOX 360 SO HIT ME UP AGAIN.

    Please, No caps-lock. It scares me, mama! lol. great ible.

    just to tell everyone who doesn't know already,they made an update for the messenger pad through xbox live,so now the wireless headset issue is fixed.
    so many people were complaining to microsoft about this so thats why they made the update.

    Way overdone solution for the quadrant use problem. I had the same problem of the controller thinking a headset was plugged when the chat pad was attached or even when it was removed. It wouldn't let me set my wireless mic to quadrant one. Opened up just the controller to test some contact points and found all you need is a single jumper wire on two of the 2.5mm jack solder connections.

    Keeps the badly designed 2.5mm socket from always reporting something as plugged in, lets me use the wireless along with the chat pad, and best of all if I plug a headset into either the chat pad or controller it correctly takes precedence and works perfectly.

    1/100 the effort of this and undoing it is simple as removing a single jumper wire. Haven't found need to remove it on the three wireless controllers I used this method on.

    looks professional but loose the capital letters. (i have not used a single capital in this post, in fact, i am starting a movement: the alice's restaurant anti-capital movement. (arlo guthrie reference for those of you cool enough to have heard the song.) join this movement and never use another capital letter again! reply/pm me if you decide to join.)
