    What did you do for the lighted ROL? Can you actually get controllers to sync?

    Wooot. Its a party :wink:

    To get the board to fully sync by a button requires a more advanced mod using a chip. (forgot the name of the chip)
    As for just getting the LEDS to show I just simple wired 2 wires to the leds. Here is a small diagram I made for a mate. Use it if you wish.

    Hey Guys, I've created a account just to let you know a little bit of a easier way to do this. Once you have your RF board from the Xbox. Take the Metal cover off from around what it connected to the Xbox with and dis guard it. Now take a regular USB extender and simply plug them together they fit snugly and it works like a charm! No solder!

    That doesn't work for me. Has anyone gotten it to work on Windows 8? I have it on Windows 7 but not Windows 8.

    It doesn't mater of you get it on the secondary LED point. I did it on accident and all it does it makes the lights yellow-orange since both green and red are on.

    Hold it there long enough, it will kill the board. LEDS will get power. But it will not detect on pc. Trust me, ive done it to 2 boards to double check. Same results.

    Well I have it on there right now and it works but only 1 light is lit and it's orange (I only connected LED 1 with a wire to GND). I've had it like that for like 3 hours and my thing still works.

    not orange. If you get it to the secondary light. Meaning RED. not orange. Orange your still getting main connection to green. But if its pure red. Hold it there for a while and it will kill the board. Ive done it twice for testing.

    Oh ok that's what I thought. I was like 0.o when I saw orange since I've never seen it before on a 360.

    yea, when you get orange, you have solder touching secondary point as well as green. So its turning both on at once making orange.

    Well what was it that killed the board, overvoltage? If both lights are on then power should be distributed to both of them hence why the orange is dim. I'm guessing they shouldn't really blow the board.

    to be honest idk. Im not an electrician so I just go with what I find lol. It could be over voltage which is a huge possibility.
