blew up as in it made a popping noise and no longer works. its probably what youre describing but ive already upgraded to xb1 controller and receiver.What do you mean blew up? My XB360 wireless adapter stopped working, but I ordered a resistor then removed and resoldered a new one back and it is working fine again (but I use a PS4 controller normally).

FYI I recommend getting a resistor rather than the quick fix they use for safety. If you buy the resistor, just a warning, they are TINY. I HIGHLY recommend you buy at least 2, if you sneeze, it will disappear lol (personal experience I lost one of the 2 I bought).
