Xbox 360? Answered

SO im getting a new slim 360 soon and i want to mod my current one. Is there any way to J-tag it since it has the 12xxxx series dash (something like that). I really dont want to fork out all that cash for a mod chip for RGH. Is there any way I can use traditional methods of wiring components to J-tag my box? Thanks,    Bud

360 fan motor? Answered

I have a junk Xbox 360, or 3, and I am wondering about the fans. First off, does anyone know how to get the motor out without destroying anything? Secondly, does anyone know if these motors are permanent magnet motors or not? And how would I be able to test it without a voltage meter? would a small flashlight light work?

Portable Xbox 360

I saw the website of Ben Heck (benheck.com) and I was wondering if it is really necessary to modify the heatsinks for the GPU/CPU and replace the fans. I am planning on making a portable xbox 360 in an alluminum suitcase with the LCD screen from a computer monitor. Is there any easier (legal) way to wirelessly obtain xbox live? What resolution monitor should I get? Any advice?

Xbox 360, transferring old data?

I have had the old 360 for quite a few years and it has had a good run, but the hardware is wearing down and I am having issues with it which means it's is time to replace it. I know whenever we do replace it I can always get a transfer cable and move my old data onto the new system, but until then I am curious if there is any way I can transfer the data onto my laptop and play via PC. If not, that's alright, but I would like to try at least! Thanks!

Xbox 360 headset loop?

One thing I am working on is looping the headset speaker back into the mic. This way it plays everything you hear back to the game. You may wonder why in the hell anyone would want to do that? well, this is for those Really annoying people or kids with really annoying voices(squeakers) When they start being annoying or making sounds, I can plug the modded headset in, so they can hear just how dumb they sound. I took apart my headset and there are 4 wires, 1 blue, 1 red wire, 1 white wire, and a bare wire. the red and blue wire go to the speaker, and the bare wire and white wire go to the mic I've googled more about it and it seems the white wire is a ground so does that mean I just solder the blue, red, and bare wire together and I'm done? thnx for any help you can give. (P.S. Yes the Picture is correct, the bare wire looks red, but is really brass, and the black wire is really red, with a plastic enamel.)

Can an Xbox 360 be "portablized"? Answered

I love videogames. I am going to buy an xbox 360 soon. The only problem is that i want to be able to play in the car, in the backyard, wherever without having to mess with a buncle of cables and a huge TV. This gave me an idea. A modder named Ben Heck (http://www.benheck.com) creates portable game consoles from existing ones. I could possibly use the motherboard and extend the ports, put it in an aluminum suitcase, and use an LCD computer monitor for the screen in the lid. I already have most of the materials I need, but I have a few minor concerns. I don't want the unit to overheat leaving me with a dead xbox. I don't know what resolution LCD monitor I should try to get. And I'd like to know if it's possible to hook up a battery that could power the completed unit. Can anyone give me some advice?

360 submergerd in mineral oil

Well, I seen the instructable to submerge a PC motherboard in non-conductive mineral oil to cool it and brainstormed that this could be the perfect fix for my RROD problem with a early model Elite. I have drawn up plans and already found a few problems and would like some input on them. I do not expect a expert answer but I'm sure there are people out there that can make a far better assessment on this than I. 1.) Will the oil conduct and move enough heat to be more effective than fans? 2.) The case I have designed requires roughly 2.8-3.0 Gal of mineral oil and if i was to consider         circulating it through a radiator, what would an appropriate pump size be? ( gallons or liters          per min) 3.) Also I would plan on using only wireless controllers so is there a way to solder some leads       onto the sync button and maybe to an external momentary switch so I would not need access       to the MB everytime we wanted to add another player? Thank you for any help you can provide on any of these issues. Regardless I will begin work on it tomorrow as a experiment and to challenge myself. I will be making an instructable on this when it is done. And many thanks to the original author that inspired me to take it a step further. https://www.instructables.com/id/Mineral-Oil-Submerged-PC/

Help with an xbox 360 controller malfunction

I have 2 Xbox 360 controllers with the left analog stick's dead zone sticking. That is to say that if the joystick is nugged slightly and put down, it constantly registers a small movement in the direction it was nugged until you re-center it. I've tried taking it apart and cleaning it, but it seems the spring inside the analog stick unit is worn out. I've searched google, and the only broken controller hits I got was for the stick breaking off completely from the analog unit. Any insight as to how i could fix this problem, or am I better off trying to make 1 good controller out of 2 bad ones by taking the right analog unit off one and soldering it on the left analog port on the other?

Help. my xbox 360 wireless AA batt acid melted the ground wire connection on the controller. need help to make a new one

I have wireless xbox 360 controller, and using the removable AA battery pack. ( not the rechargeable closed solid battery pack ) after leaving the AA batteries in for a long time, the acid leaked out and actually melted the GROUND wire that is soldered to the PCB of the controller. i tried soldering a new wire on, but i'm guessing the point where the wire goes no longer is suitable as the controller still wont turn on. is there another place i can run the - (negative) part of the AA batteries on the PCB as im confident the normal place the ground wire goes to is screwed..... i was thinking can i connect it to the place the rechargeable battery pack connects to as it seems that it doesnt touch the same connectors as the AA battery pack. as the rechargeable pack has those small copper flat pins on the back of it.. which one is ground, can i use that connection? any help would be appreciated. photos of the place i can make my new ground connection would really help.... you can email me at tristan@platinumav.tv if you like, as i may not be able to check this site very often due to work. thanks for ur help all!
