Adventures in soldering – Fixed my Xbox 360 wireless adaptor

Posted on Updated on

Over the weekend I started playing some PC games and decided that it was better to use a game pad.

It was at that point I discovered that my trusty PC wireless adaptor for my Xbox 360 gamepad(s) had stopped working, as in dead. I tried to revive it in every way I could, but I gave up and figured it was a case of fix or buy new. Read the rest of this entry »
