    How to build your own 5v to 3.3v converter tool

    This tut will show you how to build a 5v to 3.3 v converter from junk xbox 360 parts.

    You can build it many difernt ways but i will show you 2 of them.

    This is a handy little thing i use all the time for reading nands, flashing glitch chips or if i just need a
    ground or 3.3v.

    I know this is not nothing great but i just wanted to share it with you.

    All you need is a old junk usb cable or flash stick and a junk xbox 360 to reclaim parts from.

    What is the cap doing? You shouldnt need it at all. also, 3.3 volt part doesnt matter really... the capacitance is important and not mentioned by you at all.

    sorry about that.
    The cap is needed so you are not running directly from the regulator and a 47uf to a 100uf will work fine.
