just got finished w/ controller surface mount LEDs replacements and it was actualy a lot of fun. i figure im going to do the same to the console's ROL. i was looking through Sickmods.net and only saw one type of surface mount LED for sale, (type, not color). are the cotroller surface mounts the same as the console's? and if not would i need to get a multi colored surface mount LED to indicate the RROD? _________________________________________________________

I dont know anything about replacing the led's , I have in the past riped apart both my console and controller, to the best of my memory they looked like the same led's, I remember for sure the console uses the tiny rectangular led's. Those suckers are extremely bright for their size.

Yes they are exactly the same, BUT, remember 1 thing. If you ever get a RROD, you'll never know because the led's only have 1 color, and the tri-color led's do not change for a RROD error. If it ever happens, you'll only know by the fact that your 360 get's power, you can hear the fans, but get NO audio or video or flashing lights.
I should know, i found this out the hard way. _________________________________________________________ Predtech
