PSP controlled by Xbox pad and keyboard.

Do you have a technical question that doesn't really fit a specific console? Want some general info on electronics, hacking, making cookies, etc? Here's the place to ask! Go nuts.

PSP controlled by Xbox pad and keyboard.

Video one with the Xbox pad and video two with the keyboard as well.

What goes on? How was this done?

I've noticed that vid one has the USB plugged in and no wifi flashing yet in two there is no USB connected but wifi is flashing like crazy.

The explanation for this is he either switched the ISO streaming method or the PC is sending signals to the PSP via USB/wifi in the respective cases.

Good stuff either way, wouldn't mind knowing how this works.

Since he doesn't say where on the net he found the video, it's hard to say for sure. The easist way to go about it is to gut the circuitry of the X-Box and keyboard, and then directly wire the switches to the PSP's switches. This probably why it was docked in the video. In the keyboard video segment, you can see a ribbon cable coming out the back of the keyboard, leading me to suspect that this is indeed the method the modder used.

Hes using IRShell. Thats the program you see running on his psp before he starts ThrottleX. With IRshell you can redirect the controls of the psp to anyy keyboard/xbox controller/Xbox360 controller/Joystick, or any other controller that works with windows. The newest version of IRShell is v3.0 and works on firmware 1.50 and 2.71 PSP's, its a pretty usefull homebrew app, especially playing MP3s while playing umd games, it even allows you to mute the game music/sfx too. Pretty cool stuff.
