Here is my girlfriend’s Kasumi’s Xbox – both she and I have worked on it for a while, and it has many mods – both on the hardware and software. Here is a list of the current specs of her box:

Other Mods

USB Hub
Relay between USB Hub and Port 4 so that both are usable without an external switch

The Relay works by detecting if there is a controller in port four. If there is a controller, the USB hub is shorted, and the controller connects. If there is no controller connected, the USB hub works. You cannot see this in the pictures, but there is a light on the hub that glows when it is powered. This goes out when the controller is plugged in. With this mod, she is able to use an internal USB hub with no external switches, as well as have full usage of her controller (even yellow wire is left intact)
