Instructables
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

Step 2: 2

ok i only have pics of the finished product, but now you need your LEDs and resistors. The LEDS should be 5mm watever color you want, and the resistors are 47ohm . You can get both at radioshack. You need 2 of each. Take a red sharpie (or something) and mark the longer LED leg. Then cut both legs so they are about a few cm long. The positive leg(longer one) still being marked. You can test them on a battery, but if the LEDs are not blue or green you have to use a resistor for anything you do with them, or they will burn out!


Also mind that i recommend risistors for everything, it saves your battery power, for less batteries or recharges, and sometimes makes the LEDs actually glow theyre real color, (ex. Green glowing xbox green, not yellow green from too much power.)

Step 3: 3

Now get your wire. I used the 32 AWG wire or at least the thinnest one at radioshack, blue and red colors.red posistive and blue negative. So wire the LEDs accordingly. Then sodler the wires onto the rumble solder places. Look how the red is on the left. Just look at it on your controller. See which side the cables are. So match them up. BUT before you do that cut off most of the resistors legs and solder them onto hte positive LED wire. Then solder so that the resistor is actually soldered to the chip, not the wire (at least for posistive.)

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
babayaga2000 (author)  crows0052 years ago
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

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!

 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!
Aswome!
dude those look sick 
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.
babayaga2000 (author)  bigbz5 years ago
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
babayaga2000 (author)  bigbz5 years ago
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.
babayaga2000 (author)  bigbz5 years ago
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
WHICH LOGO?

I want to put in a flashing led does it have to be a certain wattage? hers the page.....www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp
I want to do the same thing but idk how to put this flashing led in.
mdawg2524 years ago
hey im having trouble hooking BOTH of the LED wires in i can only put in 1 for some reason
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
zachsir6 years ago
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.
babayaga2000 (author)  zachsir6 years ago
,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
babayaga2000 (author)  philauris6 years ago
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
philauris6 years ago
how did you make the edges of the x look splatterd.... or was it an accident
babayaga2000 (author)  philauris6 years ago
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.
madhops06206 years ago
whats the point in doing this? Is there any advantage, or is it just so the LEDs turn on when it rumbles?
babayaga2000 (author)  madhops06206 years ago
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.
deathorange6 years ago
You don't auctualy need one of these i managed to take mine apart with a flat screw driver 1.5mm.
babayaga2000 (author)  deathorange6 years ago
yeah i know, i did it with a phillips but its much easier with this one
