The buttons are just simple switches that connect two wires when pressed.  You can lengthen the wires and move them wherever you want, I use a power button in my controller so I don't have to get up out of my chair.  The circuit board for the buttons is very basic.  It is basically just a couple wires for the LEDs and a few wires for the buttons.  You could completely do away with the whole board with very little work.

I believe I read somewhere there was an easy way to switch the working of the 2 buttons?

Yes, swap the two wires on the connector of the power/eject board - SW1 Eject and SW2 Power

See: http://diy.sickmods.net/Tutorials/Xbox1/Power-Eject_Pinouts/ for the pinouts.

Is there also some easy way to just use one button?

No easy way to use 1 switch for two different functions.

I wouldn't mod the original, you never know when you might need it.  I would buy a cheap project board and wire it up the way you want it.  You can cut it to whatever size you need and easily attach any wires, buttons, and LEDs you want.  Something like this https://www.amazon.com/Paxcoo-Prototype-Soldering-Electronic-Projects/dp/B075VRWC9V/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1546902689&sr=8-3&keywords=project+circuit+board

I see your point, but I believe I have around 20 extras boards. So I can sacrifice one for testing purposes for sure :)

In that case you can definitely modify it. just map out the traces and if you have to cut one you need you can always jumper a wire to fix the trace.  It's a very basic board.  It basically just acts as a mount for the buttons and LEDs, it is no problem to modify.

I was thinking the same. It wouldn't be difficult to just use wires and a switch instead for the board either I guess. I am just not experienced in working with pcbs and schematics, but I am fond of learning new stuff. I'll see if I do a "slimmer" build soon. Will first have to finish the one I am doing now. Also have 2 other consoles that need finishing details.

I am looking to do something very similar to this. I would like to make the eject button perform the function of the power button. Does anyone have a working link to the PCB schematics or can post a pic?

It appears to me like wires "1" & "2" serve the original "power" while "8" and "9" serve the "eject". Is it possible to swap the wires around to do as I intend?

Any help would be appreciated.

Simple

Swap the power and eject wires in the plug

Thanks alot, SS Dave! That answers my question perfectly. In the mean time, I found this photo through an image search that might come in handy for anyone else doing this kind of work.

I have one more question: how difficult would it be to wire up a toggle switch to replace the power/eject pcb entirely?

You would need a spdt momentary switch

The switch will have 3 terminals

The center terminal is ground and the outer 2 terminals  is one side to the power SW2 and the other to the eject  SW1

      I was running some Halo system link no issue. When I switched over to Brute Force and Mechassault the link failed to see another Xbox.I am using a unmanaged switch. 
      I used one of these back i the day https://www.ebay.com/itm/Radica-Gamester-RC73220-LAN-Party-4-port-hub-and-Gamester-power-supply/164263467360?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649. The question is do some of the old games need a hub not a switch for connection ?

      Beeps, light and fan then off with no beep on for around 1 second?
      Xbox one s 1TB, push power button light beep and fan on then shuts off with no beep.
      i have looked online at possible causes and solutions. So far I have stripped it down to carry out some tests on the power supply and power rails/ apu mosfets hdmi leads all ok?
      power port ok
      apu mosfets ok
      fan ok
      does anyone have any links to video tutorials that give an in sight in to fault finding and full diagnostics of their mother boards? 
      I find that all people start with some really great info and fault diagnostics testing then wrap it all up when they replace a mosfet rather than going on to lead you around the board say for example it’s not the mosfet then we test x,y z and so on until you have done a full diagnostics.
      also does anyone have links to test points and maybe a diagram any advice or support will help what are reading of the multimeter supposed to be can they differ on different boards?
      i have a keen interest to learn and absorb all relevant information related to fixing all consoles your knowledge and expertise would be great and hugely appreciated.
      please note I have tried to do the manual trouble shoot diagnostics hold button trick with no avail also tried a different hdmi lead and hair drier trick again with no avail.
      please help guys thanks in advance

      Hi! 
      I recently did a TSOP Flash on my 1.1 Xbox, now it has a custom bios (evox). I downloaded XBMC4GAMERS (to E/Apps/Xbmc4Gamers) , used the url downloader in order to have the artwork, everything is ok, i can launch games and all, but i can't switch to this dash at boot.
      I read everywhere that it is very easy to do so, just by creating a shortcut with the xbeshortcutmaker, wich i did (changed the evoxdash.xbe to evoxdash_backup.xbe at the C partition, and created the shortcut with this path (E/Apps/Xbmc4Gamers) and paste to the C partition). But after that, my xbox get stuck at the boot screen with the microsoft logo.
      I used the hexen disc to go back to default, but can't manage to have my Xbmc4gamers as my main dash instead of UnleashX.
      Am i doing something wrong here?
