Alrighty, well while searching for a decently priced usb gamepad, I wandered into a GameStop, There I did find a 10 dollar usb gamepad, but I also noticed they had a used rockband hub with power supply for 2 bucks. Well, this actually gives me two awesome parts that I could use. The first being the hub itself. The second being a power adapter that I can retrofit a female usb fitting on, and instant usb charging for a cellphone, ipod, w/e. But more on that later. The Rockband hub requires an external power source, rightfully so as those 360 controllers have a pretty mean amp draw on them. However, I have a keyboard, mouse, cellphone, and gamepad that could all be using only one port on my pc, instead of 4. So, not wanting to use the external power to the hub (like a normal person) I wanted to power this off my computers bus. Please note: After you perform this NEVER EVER plug it back into the wall, I'm not really willing to find out what would happen.
Step 1: Crack open the casing.
Easily enough, if you have fingernails, running them along the sides where the top and bottom meet, you'll find the casing will pop right open
Step 2: Pretty basic from the top
Once the top is off, make sure you didn't break any clips :)
Step 3: Carefully turn board over.
Make sure not to stress the wires attached to the board feeding the usb into this hub.
