[Q] l2cap, bluetooth controller issues
Ok, I purchased the Nyko Playpad assuming because of the packaging that it would simply sync and then i would key map and i would be playing Castlevania:COTM right now after years of not owning an actual GameBoy. I tried the suggested/"included free software" available from the play store, I got the controller synced in APP mode, which only works for initial boot and in the app its self. It does not work as a mouse or HID input. One of my emulators has iCade support; so I set the controller to iCade, synced and then went to key map. Failure. I've gotten as far as getting the controller to recognize 2-4 commands from the controller at a time; however, they inputs were, I: straight into the google seach app thinger II: the back key III: 5/* IV: 8. so no really anything useful for playing any sort of game or even browsing in mouse mode.
I began re-reading all of the instructions, reviews and watching Nyko's how-to stuff on YouTube. Over the course of 5 hard hours of me being neck deep in failure and coding I don't fuly understand, I found my problem. Sense lacks proper l2cap support, apparently...
I tried Bluez IME, and its respective hid enabling apk. That did not work for me either.
So, right now, I'm looking at unlocking and possibly rooting.. I guess, I'm not ready to admit defeat and return the controller right yet. Will Cyanogen/any other stable homebrew unlock this for me without msoftware, I goe losing camera, BT, etc... functions? Will a simple unlock and a flash of the BT fix the issue or is it too closely tied to the sense input system? I'm not too familiar with all the coding, but I have been an Ubuntu user for about a decade, I know it's like the baby step, but it's quick and has me at least a little familiar with the Android's linux based system.
