I'm not really sure of any other method apart from using the sixaxis app which you need root for. As I understand it, apparently Sony Z2 users can use the PS3 Controller without rooting the device as Sony implemented the means to link up the two without any 3rd party app(Which is logical...Sony after all).

You'll have to compromise somewhere though, seriously. It's a 3rd party controller, how do you expect it to work without at least rooting the device so that you can MAKE changes in order for it to work? It's like trying to install a program(That needs Administrative privileges) on a PC without granting it Administrative privileges

Where do you people get this information from? Link me to the place that says you can't get OTA if you're rooted

You'll get OTA if you're rooted, you just need to make sure that you have stock recovery installed. If you're S-ON you'll have to relock bootloader, if you're S-OFF then you don't need to, but not getting OTA because you're rooted?
