  2. The instructions point to 'ellert' website for downloading the libusb components, however, that website has gone ahead and updated it's libraries to support the latest mac os. Therefore, when it is executed, the sixpair.c file looks for the older version of the libusb libraries and therefore, fails.
  3. The entire process for the Mac seems to be an hunting exercise for libraries, correct versions, clarifying instructions, commandline etc. Meanwhile, over a ---, there are straightforward instructions and one sixaxis pair tool to pair dualshocks to ios devices as long as they're jailbroken. Simple and over in a matter of minutes. Would it be a lot to ask for a similar experience for paying Mac customers of dancing pixels tool?

Have you had any luck? I can't get it to work, and I don't really have access to a PC so would like to be able to do it on OS X. When I run the ./sixpair MACADDRESS command all I get is this:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libusb-0.1.4.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/path/sixpair
  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap: 5
I'm pretty sure I've installed libusb, but it might be in the wrong directory or something, but how would I change that?

I am an LG Optimus 4x HD user. I just upgraded to v20b Europe Open, (4.1.2 Jellybean) and it broke SixAxis.

I have heard that SixAxis 0.5.7 works with this version of my firmware I just updated to. I'd love to be able to use SixAxis 0.5.7, but don't have a backup of it. I am a legitimate user of the app - I bought it full price from the Play Store. Any advice on where I can get a legit copy of 0.5.7 from?
I never wanted to have a signature, but it seems I must. Please do not PM me directly for technical support. I mean it! No exceptions! Thank you.

Everyone (esPECIALLY n00bs) should read this.

Has anyone had luck with the Moto G? It doesn't seem to recognize the inputs, but some apps like USB host controller do see the controller. Does Sixaxis Controller have its own implementation so that the controller will work even if the inputs are not recognized natively?

More information on my question here: Link

Edit: It works with Bluetooth once rooted just fine!

We recently moved to a 3.4-based kernel on the HP Tenderloin for CyanogenMod builds. (we actually have a 3.0 kernel as well but experience the same issue).

The compatibility app says we should be good to go, and bluetooth works normally with other devices, but obviously the Sixaxis app does something strange being that it has to turn bluetooth off in order to work.

I'm wondering if you can shed some light on what exactly we need to support in our kernel/bt stack in order to get this working.

Currently the app just sits "Listenting for controllers..."
(It's not a user issue, I can set the MAC for my phone and it connects right up )

Thanks in advance.

thanks for the amazing work @sir_earl
thanks to you, my Note3 has become a pseudo nVidia Shield (with a DS3 as the controls)

I'm currently facing some input lag issues with my Dpad and Buttons while using Kainy
not sure if this is a Kainy issue or Sixaxis issue :/
