Xbox One controller was introduced in 2016 with the launch of the Xbox One S and adds Bluetooth support for Windows 10/11. This controller fixes many of the design flaws found on the Model 1537/1697 controllers and is much more reliable. This controller has been replaced with the improved Model 1914 controller.

Since the USB connection is the normal method of using the controller as a wired device, I'm not clear on what you are trying to accomplish. Why do you need a connection that doesn't use the micro USB port?

@dadibrokeit Sorry about that, I mean that I want to solder a connection to the controller instead of using the micro USB.

So to clarify, you want to hardwire a USB cable to the controller, bypassing the micro USB port, is that what you're trying to do? For what purpose?

da

@dadibrokeit Yep, because the plug keeps breaking and I just don't want to spend the money to buy one.

Okay, based on our conversation in the comments, let's see if we can figure out how to do this for you.

First of all, you're going to have to do some soldering, since the USB connector that you want to get rid of is the only place you can actually plug wires into. Depending on your actual board, you may have a couple of choices as to where to connect your wires to. The obvious place will be to desolder the USB connector and connect the bare wires to the circuit board traces where the connector pins used to be. Here the five spots are marked in red in this picture.

The nice thing about doing it this way is that you can use the mounting holes that were there for the connector as a way to secure those wires so they won't be easily yanked off the board.

Alternatively, there appear to be some test points where it looks like you could solder the wires to so that you wouldn't need to desolder the USB connector. You'd best double check with an ohmmeter, but I've marked five spots that look like they correspond to the five pins on the USB.

The next step is to make yourself a wire. Get a standard USB-A to micro USB cable and cut off the micro USB end an inch or so away from the connector. You'll want to leave some wires intact so you can use an ohmmeter to figure out which wire goes to which pin. Once you know which is which, strip the wires and solder them onto whichever points you've settled on using on the motherboard.

A very important consideration here is to secure the cable you're making solidly to the controller. You don't want to give the wire a good jerk in the middle of an intense gaming session only to rip the wires and circuit traces off the board. A common method is to drill a hole through the wall of the controller, feed the wire through and tie a knot in it. Heck, even Apple does that on their Magsafe adapters!

This should give you a pretty good place to start; holler if you need more help. Good luck!
