Xbox360 wired pad question


#1

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


#2

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


#3

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


#4

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


#5

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!
