Wireless controller mod

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this. Also, if it's stupid I'm sorry, I don't really know anything about electronics yet.

I'm thinking about the possibility to convert the memory units ports of the S controller to put in a lithium battery and something like a bluetooth transmitter. I'm totally noob, so actually I don't know if this would actually work, with a usb bluetooth receiver plugged in or wired to one of the controller ports. Since it is the original controller no drivers would be needed and it should work like it was plugged in with a cable.

I was also thinking about using the same kind of transmitters that are used in keyboards or mouses.

I made some research on the net but seems that nobody did or even tried doing something like this with an S controller. Is that because this mod won't actually work?

Why not just use a OGX360 with a MS wireless receiver then you can use a Xbox 360 wireless controller or 8BitDO with a Xbox One controller or heavens forbid a PS4 controller.

Also the bluetooth receiver would still need a driver on the Xbox.

Soft modding is like masturbating, It gets the job done but it's nothing like the real thing.

It's not quite that simple. The Xbox would see the USB bluetooth receiver, not the Xbox controller that is wirelessly connected to it. The Xbox would then need a driver for the exact bluetooth adapter you're using, which is a very difficult task. The same obstacle exists if keyboard/mice dongles are used instead. What you're talking about is possible, but would require a considerable amount of background knowledge in order to build.

As Dave said, an ogx360 kit is the best way to accomplish using a wireless controller. Aside from buying a retail 3rd-party wireless controller from back in the day (logitech, madcatz, etc.). The ogx360 presents itself to the Xbox as a standard Xbox controller and translates button presses from a controller (wired or wireless) that is plugged into it. To give you an idea of the scale of this task, the person who made the project is an electrical engineer (by no means a noob) and it involved designing custom circuitry and firmware to get the whole thing running.

Or you could build you own. all the info including where to get the boards made are on the Ryzee119's github.

Here is 2 variants that I have made the top is the original and the bottom is from a NZ FB member

Oh I see. It is definitely more difficult than I thought... 

I'm going to buy an OGX360, it is just a it of my budget at the moment. (Consider I would have to buy the board, the adapter and a controller). 

I have a wireless keyboard from Trust that my parents bought to use on the tv. Since it worked out great at first try (even the mouse, that I've heard is difficult to get to work on te xbox) I thought it would be possible to just find a pair of transmitter/receiver that is known to work. But seems that I will have to learn a little bit more about how this things actually work before.


Thanks to you all, I will post here if I end up with some working project

      Are there any issues/conflicts I need to be aware of when tsoping my xbox? Ive been running a soft mod for a week or so and have a sata 500gb HDD locked with apps, games and of course a dash, XBMC4gamers.

      If so I can always put the original HDD in to tsop it that way but then am I good to go with putting the 500gb back and just straight booting? OR, do I need to reinstall everything?

      Any specific bios reccomendations? I will be using the drive as well as the HDD and on 1.4 I think. Certainly not 1.6

      Hey guys, all my original controllers are out of commission for now unless until i can fix them, if i even can. I have a few 3rd party controllers but all the joysticks just feel awful, i don't know if its the dead zone or the sensitivity or both but wow they just do not feel good. Anyone know a way to help with this? I dont know if i can install some other joysticks or if its possible to modify the ones in them already or what. Honestly might just be time to buy or build that wireless xbox360 controller mod.

      Hi, I’m new to anything to do with mod chips on the original Xbox so my apologies if I sound like a complete noobie. 
      I recently purchased a Xbox of Facebook market place that has a DuoX2 (blue) mod chip installed. When the console boots is has like a green logo in the top left and Slayers 2.7 underneath the Xbox logo at the bottom of the screen (I’ll add a photo to explain what I’m talking about). Then it boots into evolutionX dashboard I believe. 
      I’ve dabbled with soft modded Xboxes before and wanted to take a crack at a mod chipped one but I’m worried I’ll brick the console if I just try and re flash bios and install a new dashboard. So long story short, is it possible to update the bios on the mod chip to someone a little more recent like EvoX M8 or something? The Xbox is 1.4 console. I opened it and cleaned the console of dust and re did the thermal paste and fixed the DVD belt prior to wanting to update the dashboard and mod chips Bios.
      any help is much appreciated.
      Kind Regards, Karl
