Hi It seems if I want to DIY to put kinect purchased together with a xbox on turtlebox, I have to modify the original kinect which involves cutting the power cable of kinect. Can the modified kinect be still used with xbox? Anyone has done this?

Check out Pgs. 17-20 of our TurtleBot hardware manual. It assumes that you've got the AC power adapter for your Kinect (which IIRC is optional). If you've got the adapter, you can modify it in a way where you can put it back together (shown in the manual). If you don't have the adapter, you'll need to get one.

The link provided does not work anymore. The TurtleBot hardware documentation is still available in this archive hosted by ROS:
