Xbox 360 – Mini-USB SPI Flasher PCB

Posted by on August 4, 2011

Intro:

Here’s a XBOX 360 USB SPI Flasher with a Mini-USB connector, the board is based on this project.

I redesigned the PCB since the original had a poor layout and used quite the uncommon B type connector.

 

It was made for a friend but I’m sharing it nonetheless, you can see his results here (Don’t worry, the whole “xbox sucks” deal is an inside joke).

Files:

You can download the eagle sch and brd files from here: Xbox360 Mini-USB SPI Flasher.

Notes:

In theory the board could be made smaller, but since most people will be making these at home, I decided to use a bigger isolation gap, bigger pads, etc. To simplify the process.

For reasons of availability the smd switch was replaced by a simple pin header, thus a jumper is used instead of the switch.

 

 

Enjoy.
