Xbox 360 controller
Mod chip and extra buttons
JTAG is a hardware modification that allows you to use hard drives of any size and run mods such as aimbot. Aimbot allows you to hone in on your targets with absolute precision in first person shooting titles. To JTAG your Xbox 360, you will have to spend a lot of money, however, and risk voiding your Microsoft warranty. Other solutions exist to help you amp your game in your favorite first person shooters without having to resort to such desperate -- and costly -- measures. Everything from enhanced joysticks to controllers with extra buttons will give you aimbot capabilities.
Replace the grips on your joysticks. A new joystick with better grip makes it easier for you to zero on your opponents. You'll find yourself shouting "Boom, headshot!" before you know it. You can even buy grips in camouflage and various flashy colors.
Put a mod chip and extra buttons on your controller. This option requires minimal soldering experience. Remove the back from your controller using a Torx screwdriver, remove the circuit board, glue the new buttons in place and solder the mod chip to the circuit board.
Buy a new controller with a rapidfire aimbot mode. These controllers allow you to shoot faster and more accurately than your opponents. Your friends may call it cheating, but you'll just call it winning.
Installing a mod chip and extra buttons may void the warranty on your Microsoft controller. Consult your controller manual before attempting to modify your controller.
