Default [APP] Use that Wiimote as a Bluetooth Gamepad

Well it's a long time coming and I haven't seen any threads with a how to use a Bluetooth Wiimote from the Wii for those gamers out there. Additionally I have been able to play using the Wii Classic Controller Pro attached to the Wiimote (I want to note that it is the one on the right and optional as not everyone has these). Note that I am rooted with an unlocked bootloader, running the latest version of Glazed JellyBean which can be downloaded below (for this app to be able to recognize the wiimote it must be run on a v4.1.2 rom, I've tried many, many 4.2/4.3/4.4 Roms and none seem to work due to bluetooth compatibility problems):
Full wipe required prior to flashing rom. Factory Reset (3 times), dalvik cache, system, cache and data.

Rom download here, Glazed JellyBean v2.1

So let's start the shenanigans..


1.) Download and install this free app from the PlayStore: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....WiiUseAndroid

2.) Turn on bluetooth on the phone if not already enabled.

3.) Open the Wiimote app, then press buttons 1 and 2 at the same time on the wiimote controller, it should start flashing.

4.) Press 1 Init and connect within the app, it should pick up the wiimote and say connected.

5.) Once connected press 2 Select WiicontrollerIME to enable the Wii controller.

6.) Finally go into the emulator or game of your choice and enable Bluetooth devices and assign buttons.

Tested on:
My boy! Emulator, no lag and no issues.
Nesoid Emulator, no lag and no issues.
Drastic Emulator, no lag and no issues.

There are tons of threads on Wiimotes; they all died when Google changed the stack in 4.2.
AT&T LG G2 - 4.3, AOKP
Samsung Note i717 - 4.2.2, Unofficial AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.2, Stock Rooted (m-kernel)

I understand that but there is a way to revert back to a v4.1.2 Rom to get it working again. It may not be "your thing" but I'm sure some people might be open to it.
