    Would like make a post confirming that the pinout posted on the 1st page for the Panthera also indeed works for the Atrox.

    On that note, does anyone who's made custom cables for the Panthera using generic aviation connectors have any issues with how recessed the male connector is on the Panthera's case? I tried it on my Atrox, but since the lug on the aviation connector isn't as big as the one on the stock Atrox cable, I have a bit of a harder to screwing/unscrewing the thing. Wondering if the Panthera's male connector is any more or less recessed than the Atrox.

    I wish I can help you but my Atrox is an actual prototype I tested for Razer.

    PS4 TE2s (TE2+ included) use the pinout posted by JesseJames

    Xbox One TE2, Xbox One Atrox and Panthera use the same pinout according to the IPW video about the Panthera (I think it was posted somewhere on the first page)


    Xbox One TE2's cable uses the same pinout as the PS4 version.

    So to my understanding, any old usb cable would work here when creating a new pro cable? Just want to make sure before attempting this.

    Yes

    EDIT: Make sure it's a charging and data sync cable instead of just a charging cable, of course.

    I like using USB cables that are marketed for Printers and not Cell Phones.

    Did you have to replace the factory male part with the aviation male connector in your Panthera /Atrox? how difficult was it to install the aviation male connector to Panthera /Atrox? Does it require a drilling or modification to the body of Panthera /Atrox?

    Hi Guys,

    First of all I'd like to thank the OP and all of you for the info I've found here - that was invaluable.

    Second, let me ask if you have any ideas on why it could be not working - at least for me :))

    I've found the comnector, I've soldered the cables firm, without any mess or interconnections, all acording to the pin out schematics above. The stick glows briefly, then PC informs about unrecognized device. Xbox does not inform about anything, just does not work. While using the second USB set of pins located on the stick interface board - everything works just perfect (on the PC and xbox as well)

    I'm stuck. Is it possible I've mistaken ground and shield cables for example? Both are black...

    Thanks in advance for any help!
