Xbox360 wired pad question

To those of you that have hacked one of these, is there a common ground on the controller? If not then i’ll have to solder to each ground T_T

I remember reading that each button has it’s own ground. I’m not positive though.

It doesnt use grounds, but has this weird matrix thing going on. Solder two wires to each button is the easiest solution.

There is no common ground on the controller. You will have to solder to each ground.

There are a couple pairs of shared grounds usually, but using a ground for each button is your best bet.

Thanks, you guys have been helpful

Yeah, I seem to remember it was 3 seperate grounds on mine. Soldering each individual ground seems like more work, but is the easiest way to avoid a major headache!
