Step 1: Tools & Parts
An original XBOX
An original XBOX "breakaway" cable
A male-to-female USB cable
A copy of Splinter Cell
Soldering Iron & solder
Helping hands (not absolutely necessary, but the sure do help)
See step 5.
Gather your tools, the breakway and USB cables and clear a workspace. You might want to set down newspaper or a protective covering as you will be soldering.
I ruined the expensive and terrible USB cable pictured here that I purchased from The Source. I then bought one at the dollar store for a fraction of the cost that ended up being of much better quality. Lesson learned.
