Without a USB HUB

 
Without a USB HUB
 
1
Set Output Protocol
 
 
Follow the instructions here to correctly connect your CronusMAX PLUS to a PC via the PC PROG port using the supplied Mini-USB Cable.
 
Load Cronus PRO and go to Tools > Options > Device
 
 
Set the Output Protocol to XB1.
 
These are also the recommended default Speed Up Settings for DualShock 4 Wireless Controllers.
 
2
Enable DualShock 4 Bluetooth Searching
 
Check the box to the Left of 'Enable DualShock 4/Wiimote Bluetooth searching'.
 
 
The recommended Speed Up Settings when using a DualShock 4 Controller with a Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter are as above - you can choose to tweak with them if you have any issues. If you have a slower Bluetooth adapter or experience any issues with rumble then you should try different 'Rumble Over Bluetooth' speed settings. You have the alternative options of Flow Control+, Flow Control and Disabled.
 
You can now close the Options window and disconnect your CronusMAX PLUS from your PC.
 
3
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox One
 
 
Connect the CronusMAX PLUS into one of your Xbox One USB ports via it's Output Port.
 
 
  
The CronusMAX PLUS LED Display will now show the Authentication 'AU' Animation.
 
4
Remove any Xbox One Controller Batteries
 
 
Remove any batteries or charger pack from your Xbox One Controller (if it has them).
 

This is a very important step or the controllers will not authorize correctly.

 
5
Connect your Xbox One Controller to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
 
Connect your Xbox One Controller into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS using a full data Micro-USB Cable.
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the Authentication 'AU' Animation to 0 (or a number if slot recall is enabled and a script was previously loaded). If the Display does not change from showing AU, try a different Micro-USB Cable between the CronusMAX PLUS and Xbox One Controller, and/or physically power cycle your Xbox One.
 
WARNING
If the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS does not change from AU to a number then the authorization controller is not authenticating. 99% of the time we find that this means the Micro-USB cable to the controller is faulty or not full data or simply not compatible, you should try another one. Another issue that sometimes comes up is that the controller USB port has a loose data pin. It will charge fine, but won't transmit data. Also make sure the controller is powered on of course - that's a rookie mistake.

Hold down the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4
 
  Press and hold the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4 until the light bar starts to flash white.  Once it starts flashing white, the controller is searching and connecting to the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
 
  After a few seconds, the light bar should change to a solid color (usually blue if Player 1) and is now paired with the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
9
Ready to Use
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the spinning Standby Animation to 0 (or a number if slot recall is enabled and a script was previously loaded) - indicating that the controllers are authorized and you're ready to play. At this point you can use your controller through the CronusMAX PLUS and also load any scripts or GamePacks. It's that simple!

OPTIONAL: Disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching
 
If you do not intend to use your DualShock 4 controller without the CronusMAX PLUS in the future, you can now disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching to speed up subsequent DualShock 4 wireless syncing.
 
This would also mean that next time, you can skip steps 1 and 2 and instead of holding the SHARE and PS buttons in step 8, you would simply press the PS button
