Introduction: XBOX 360 Controller USB Hack

I do this hack because my wire was broken and i found no wire on Ebay.
So I solder a USB wire on the controller.

You need:
1 x USB wire
1 x Screwdriver
1 x Soldering iron
1 x Solder
1 x Glue

Step 1: Open the Controller

Open the controller by removing the screws.

Step 2: Desolder the Original Cable

Desolder the original cable.

Step 3: Cut the USB Wire

Cut the USB wire.

Step 4: Make a Hole in the Back Cover

Make a hole in the back cover and stick the USB wire in it.
Then fix it with glue.

Step 5: Solder the USB Wire

Solder the USB wire to the Mainboard.
The pin sequence can you see on the picture or you remember the pin sequence from the original xbox wire.

Step 6: Assemble the Controller

Assemble the controller.

Step 7: Finish!

Now you can test it with a normal USB wire.

But you removed the strain relief! Did this turn out to be a durable solution?
