    My sync button is broken

    So do I understand that correctly that in order to "fix" a broken Sync Button, you ripped the button out?

    In that case, there is no other way to get the controller to sync with your mobile device.

    You could try to re-attach the button, or bridge the contacts manually to get the controller into sync mode.

    But without the button, there is no other way to get the controller into sync mode.

    Controller won't sync to my xbox

    You have to press the sync button on both the controller and the xbox itself.

    Halo 4 console and Sync issues.

    I think my sync button might be broken, Doesn't seem to even search for anything to sync with.. I'm using the only other button on the console, pretty certain it's the sync.

    It's just above the USB ports on the front, if that isn't it then i don't have anything else to press.

    My sync button is broken

    To sync the controller to a phone you will need to press the sync button for the bluetooth to be picked up by the phone. There is no app that can force the syncing of the controller.

    You will need to have the controller repaired or replaced unfortunatly.

    Can you use an xbox wireless adapter on an xbox one?

    Hi

    i think what your saying is that the sync button is broken and you want to sync a wireless headset?

    if so then yes its possible to buy a xbox wireless adapter and use that to sync the new headset, instructions on how to do that will be with the adapter. If your going to purchase an adapter look at the xbox shop first as im not sure if they do them, failing
    that i would go for a named brand as you will want the quality from it.

    i hope this helps
