    Exclamation Powering xbox with M1

    I found that diagram and basicly understand it but i still need some help.








    I know the blue circles are resitors, but i need to know what the top and bottom green circles are and what the top, middle, and bottom red circles are (and where i can get all of these online). I also need help with the jumper wires from the m1 to the xbox. Do i just connect them to where the normal power buttom connects or what? Thanks alot, Drew

    green circles should be capacitors
    the red circle in the middle looks like a transistor
    the other 2 red circles, are voltage regulators

    if you go to xbox-scene.com you'll find a tutorial for this, as well as someone else on this forum got it to work.., forget who it was now, but find out and pm him, he might help u

    you might be better off just modding the power wires directly into the Xbox's internal power supply...

    the reason people use the m1 is really because of the on off switch.. which i dont think even works in xbox's (they have a different connector)
