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 XB360.
 
These are also the recommended default Speed Up Settings for Xbox One Controllers. Rumble Over Bluetooth is disabled as it's not being used.
 
You can now close the Options window and disconnect your CronusMAX PLUS from your PC.

Connect the CronusMAX PLUS to your Xbox 360
 
 
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.
 
3
Connect your wired Xbox 360 Controller to the CronusMAX PLUS
 
 
Connect your wired Xbox 360 Controller into the Input Port of the CronusMAX PLUS.
 
  
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, check the List of Compatible Controllers to make sure your Xbox 360 Wired Controller is valid for Authentication.
 
WARNING
If the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS does not change from AU to a number then the authorization controller is not authenticating. 9/10 we find that this means the Xbox 360 Wired Controller is not compatible for authentication purposes, you should try another one. Also make sure the controller is powered on of course - that's a rookie mistake.

The CronusMAX PLUS LED Display will now show the spinning Standby animation.

Remove any Xbox One Controller Batteries
