Well i've not seen anyone mention this before (i could be wrong) but i worked this out for myself :smile: yeay for me lol.
anway what you need is:-
a way to open your 360 (guides everywhere)
Soldering iron
Flux + solder
thin wire for bridge
now take the RF board off the 360 and remove the white plastic cover and look at the pic below.

Its pretty easy even if your not experienced with soldering just bridge both negative terminals on the Player 1 led together by putting a small peice of wire by the red and green negative points and then put flux on to hold it there and allow the solder to stick then touch the points with the iron and apply a bit of solder, NOTE - if it doe'snt make all lights orange you will have to do player 2-3-4 LED's too but some rf boards only need the player 1 light bridging (i always do all of them just incase but like i said only player 1 LED is needed in some cases :smile:.
This gives you a deep orange light on the 360 without breaking the bank and its also pretty easy to reverse too :smile:
I have it done on a stock 360 and here is the result.

Sorry for the noob question, but what's flux? I've heard of it but never really knew what it did.
Can I do this without using flux?

Just did this mod on an old RF board. I have to say, I like the results, I just wish there were a way to change the middle light as well without needing to buy an LED...oh well. Beggars can't be choosers :smile:
