Xbox 360 Wireless Modded LED Controller

I'm sure you guys have seen numerous amounts of modded xbox 360 controllers but here is my interpretation of some. Hopefully with this instructable you will be able to mod your own controller to how you like. Unfortunately at the time of typing this I actually have a broken wrist so I have tried to use pictures from the past I have took when modding. I would've liked to do a full step by step guide and enter the gamer comp but by the time I heal the deadline will have probably passed. Oh well here it goes. If you like this please vote for me. Thanks and enjoy!

Step 1: Tools For The Job

So you may have already realised if you have ever been inside an xbox controller that it's pretty fiddly in there, especially for me as I have giant hands. So when selecting the tools for the job I wanted them as small as possible. Luckily there are plenty to choose from! I would say that if you are buying tools from fresh I would personally buy the best I could afford.

So you will need..... A good quality soldering iron and solder. Small pliers and wire snips. Small Philips and flat screwdrivers. A craft knife. A T9 torq driver (you can use T8 also). A hot glue gun. A drill/dremel with 3mm drill bit and maybe a towel to wipe the sweat from your brow when you get stressed!

Oh also a good light source, a magnifier and one of those helping hand rigs (very useful).

Step 2: Parts Required

So obviously you will need an xbox 360 controller. I use the wireless ones but it should still work for the wired. You will need a clear parts kit. Some 3mm LEDs. Some SMD LEDs. A 1800ohm resistor. A 2N 3904 transistor and some wire to make up the wiring loom. I prefer to use 0.1x10 multistrand wire. Nice and flexible.

All parts mentioned are available online.

Yeah go for it. I've found that the controllers are usually not bad to fix when it's the top triggers. You'll have to let me know how you get on. Good luck!

wicked gonna try this on my old pad as the trigger is broke so if I bust it more it's not that much of a loss lol, might try fixing it at the same time, probably wishful thinking
