    Charging 8100 off of XBOX360?

    Advertisement



    Anyone here try hooking their pearl to their XBOX 360 to charge? I really don't like tying up my USB ports on the PC and the 360 ports are powered.

    On the PC, you need the desktop software installed or you get an error that there isn't enough power for the Pearl to charge so i guess there's nothing you can do with the 360. heh

    why don't you just use the wall charger?

    It should just work fine, not sure if it would take more time. I find that the wall charger does it just a bit faster in my opinion.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the controller ports on the origional xbox are just oddly shaped usb 2.0's. I have a modded xbox with normal usb's and an Xecuter2 chip. Ima look for some bb homebrew for the Xbox.

    I checked and even though it states there isn't enough power it still charges the phone. So I think an xBox mod would work for ya

    Well lets say you go over to a friends house and they dont have a charger for your BB there, but they do have an xbox 360, perfect.

    I think different ways of charging your BB is pretty cool, if they work.
