Hacking the Xbox CONTROLLER

Step 16: Wire wrap

Wire wrapping provides a very durable and reliable connection. I have read that is it more reliable than soldering, even, especially where the connection will be exposed to vibration. To do a good wire wrap, you should have one rotation of insulated wire followed by seven rotations of bare wire. You can also solder this connection, if you don't have a wire wrap tool. (You can buy the tool I use from Rad shack online store for 7 dollars.)

For future reference, this is pin 8, because the chip is upside down.
