Forked project is still being prepared for you. It may take a few minutes to duplicate backend data.


xow is a Linux user mode driver for the Xbox One wireless dongle. It communicates with the dongle via libusb and provides joystick input through the uinput kernel module. The input mapping is based on existing kernel drivers like xpad.

The Xbox One wireless dongle requires a proprietary firmware to operate. The firmware is included with the Xbox - Net - 7/11/2017 12:00:00 AM - driver available from Microsoft Update Catalog. The package is automatically downloaded and extracted during the build process due to Microsoft's Terms of Use, which strictly disallow the distribution of the firmware. By using xow, you accept Microsoft's license terms for their driver package.
