this will show you how to put rumble activated LEDs in your controller. Wired or wireless. Your LEDs may or may not look like this depending on your drill acuracy, mine are ok.

Step 1: Opening it

So you will need a torx screw driver, als use a small philips to try to get the bolts out, this is for getting out the security pins. Look at those on the internet. So either that or get a security torx tool. size 8
did you make them decals yourself if so did you use stencils or free hand if stencil could you upload them so i could download them cause they look really awesome and i would love to mod my controller
i would assume stencils, or you could cut it out of masking tape and then place it on your controller like a home made stencil
Very good... compared to my first one I feel like a noob...
Turn off your F*cking Caps
whats wrong with u... your hamster broke up with you.<br /> <br /> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; -M&nbsp;
&quot;your hamster broke up with you&quot;<br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8yjJ4rMAB4" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8yjJ4rMAB4</a><br /> <br /> I feed my tarantula mice and hamsters, I don't have them as pets, how can it break up with me? It seems more like my tarantula just broke every bone in it's body!<br /> <br />
&nbsp;ok sure... hamster boy
C'mon, guys! Hating is overrated! Peace and love, mannnnn... :)
Bit late to the party, don't you think?
hahaha, party never ends!
dude those look sick&nbsp;
how did u do such a good job on the logo, did u like trace the star logo?
If you mean the nautical star on the left hand side, theres a great tutorial on how to draw them on dragoart.com. Even if you cant draw for sh&t you'll find it easy.
that is great, I have a question if i wanted to make multiple controllers respond at the same time how would that be done? kind of like a mirror or clone.
what do you mean by respond, as in one controllers character gets shot and his rumble goes off, 2 more controllers rumble with his?
yes. I'm sure it's a frequency issue. any idea? Thanks
i actually have no idea how to do that, but may i ask, Why do you want to do that?
well kind of like a gag when all my friends are over I would like to have them all go off at once. that would be kind of cool.
you would need to have wires going from each controller to the other, which would be a hassle to do, and then make them all in a big circle, and they would all have to be wired, i see your idea, but this is the only way i know of
What was the purpose of this mod?
I want to put in a flashing led does it have to be a certain wattage? hers the page.....<a href="http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3060680" rel="nofollow">www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp</a>
I want to do the same thing but idk how to put this flashing led in.
hey im having trouble hooking BOTH of the LED wires in i can only put in 1 for some reason<br />
would u build a controller like you are explaining and sell it. because i have no clue how to put all that led b/s together. if so that would be awesome
i did the same thing several weeks ago however i just took two smaller leds that i took out of an old remote control car and then placed them inside the controller's dome and attached them to the rumble pins. i used red considering a major amount of the rumble my controller does is from giving or receiving damage. it looks much better than two random led's sticking out.
,i also put leds in my dome, on a different controller, i didnt have any switches so it would light up when you put the batteries in, o i ket them out. It looked nice, but now i bought the XCM chromed wireles controller tht has ABXY LB RB X Guide and Start and Back Light up, its sick, and it has aswitch, you should look into it. Its only like 35$ with tax. Thats almost as much as i spent on all my supplies.
oh ya... and did you use basic spray paint....if you did can you tell me the brand, color and model number of the color.... u dont need the number but it would help
the green paint is actually for engine highlighting lol, but the black is Krylon, interior exterior, i was looking for paint that wouldnt rub off on your hands and this is exactly that, but if you drop it, it might still scratch a little
how did you make the edges of the x look splatterd.... or was it an accident
that was an accident i think it looks bad. or well idk whatever you think, just when your masking it, lay down te tape a little lighter around the endges where you want it i guess, i think that might work
i should make my controller buzz and lrt my friend play with it.
whats the point in doing this? Is there any advantage, or is it just so the LEDs turn on when it rumbles?
actually while playing halo 3 the battle rifle shoots out bursts of 20 bullets not 3 so it much easier to get kills( no jk, it just makes leds turn on when it rumbles, depending on which leds you use it could look cool, or stupid if they barely flash)
Wrong i tryed some barely flashing ones and some normal ones and the barely flashing ones don't destract you as much.
You don't auctualy need one of these i managed to take mine apart with a flat screw driver 1.5mm.
yeah i know, i did it with a phillips but its much easier with this one
Mind one of the screw broke off while i was taking it out so i had to make a reallbig hole were the screw was to get it out.
I came across the llama.com website to change the SMD LED's as well as the Led's for the main X button (in the middle). Before I try and do this though, which LED's are used for both occasions? Can you give me the voltage and/or current for the: 0603 SMD LED's Also for the Four LED's that light up the Main X button?
NICE XBOX GRAF1X!!!!! u need to make 1 about that!!!
oh wait i didnt put a pic of my better controller here did i, well i will, but that x is like off centered and all, just mask it yourself, its actually very simple
actually that green x was a crap job made in 10 seconds, the other one my dad masked with blue masking tape,very simple, but it took like an hour
Just one clarification...<br/><br/>The comment in the image for Step 2 says &quot;<em>Resistors are always on POSITIVE wires</em>&quot;. If you're just putting a resistor in series with a LED (or any other passive component, really), it doesn't matter which side you hook the resistor up to. As long as the LED is pointing in the correct direction.<br/>
o ok ty idk that
Cool! Add this to the new contest, Get the LED Out! Challenge, this could work. Nice job!
