Sign [Q] Wii remote with a Senseless ROM

In this thread from forever ago, sanders858 got his Wii remote to work, but I'm not getting favorable results when I try the same.

I thought the issue with connecting a Wiimote to the Rezound (or any HTC phone) was due to the BT stack in Sense ROMs. I'm currently running tachyon and there's a shot of my about screen below. it's rooted, unlocked, and s-on if any of that matters.

After enabling Bluez IME as an input method and selecting it as the IME, it automatically enables BT and it will find my official Wii controller when scanning for devices. When attempting to connect with the Wiimote (HID) device driver selected, it returns "Error: bt socket connect failed" and gives up. For giggles, I've tried other device drivers to no avail and usually forces closed.

If anyone has some insight on how to get this working or can verify a 4.2+ ROM that supports the Wiimote, I'd be muchly grateful. Thanks

Ever tried sixaxis pair? I used it on my old phone to hook up a PS3 remote to my phone when I ran emulators, and it worked great. Only bad thing is it is a paid app, and requires a program on your computer for a one time Bluetooth mapping.

Edit: Guess you could also try Wiimote Controller from the Play Store, but you have to be under 4.2 to use it.
