Yes, I know that. I used that config with my old Samsung 10.1, but I don't want to root TF700. With TF300 it works out of the box. Same company, 2 tablets with so similar specs, and what works in a recent model does not in a newer one. Hard to understand.

I have been using the Onlive Universal Wireless Controller. It is a really sold piece of hardware and works with most bluetooth devices. For some tabs though it will be detected incorrectly and leave you spinning around uncontrollably in games by default. However I found this fix on an Onlive forum which has worked perfectly for me. You will need root access in order to perform the fix.

"su
cd /system/usr/keylayout/
mount -o remount,rw /system
cp Vendor_045e_Product_028e.kl Vendor_2378_Product_100a.kl
exit
exit"

Enjoy!

Received a PhoneJoy today. Haven't played much yet, but pretty much unusable with Bluez.
Bought and installed USB/BT Joystick Center which makes wonders.

Currently I have a setup for shadowgun and fantasy drive.

I would LOVE to know if there is any site/forum that has user exports to download, so I could import it in the Joystick Center app for my phonejoy and specific game?

There is some work to be done initially as it seems, but had 0 problems after setting things up.
Currently I have some 20 games, not all are playable with gamepad, but still around 10-15 games for which i will have to find imports or i'll have to go through a hassle myself.

If anyone else has PhoneJoy maybe we can start Export/Import sharing here on this forum (new thread)
Anyone?

I've been through a bunch of controllers, and I really prefer the PS3 controller over the phone joy, onlive, etc. I was turned off in the beginning due to people continuously mentioning the sixaxis app, but after getting it set up, it really works well and it just adds one step before gaming.

I'll make it simple.

First Time Setup
================================================== =============
1. You get the application from Play.
2. Run it.
3. Hit the start button in the app.
4. Connect controller via USB cable. (you need it anyway to charge the controller)
5. Hit Pair then hit OK button
6. Unplug the controller
7. Hit the PS3 Button on the controller
8. Wait ~10 seconds.
9. Paired and Done! Now you can game.

Each Time You Want to Game
================================================== ==============
1. Start Sixaxis App
2. Press Start in App
3. Press PS3 button on Controller
4. Wait ~10 seconds.
5. Game!

The above "each time you want to game" takes 15 seconds of your life to use a quality controller, so its REALLY not a big deal.

Just, don't buy PS3 controllers from ebay =) You have been warned!

You missed the very first step; use six axis pair tool to change Bluetooth address on ps3 controller to that of your tablets address.

No need to use the PC tool, I paired it successfully just plugging the DualShock 3 into the dock. The app then found the MAC address and I could pair it.

Are we requiring root for the above processes to work with Sixaxis? I really don't want to root my Infinity, because I don't see the need to. But I also want a controller that will work well. I wonder when Ouya releases there system, if there controller will work universally across android devices.

I didn't want to get an Ouya system though, because of there refusal to leave the standard android market on it, and refusal to support existing games. All games have to be purchased through there own app market.

App calls for root but I was wondering if that is true or not as well.

I just pre-ordered the Nyko Playpad Pro from Gamestop,

FYI: As per Nyko, Gamestop will be the exclusive distributor for the Playpad Pro until February 2013.

Amazon has preorders on the Playpad and Playpad Pro but the Pro is not available until February 2013 as stated by Nyko. Bummer, I would have preferred to order almost anywhere other than Gamestop since their return policy stinks compared to most others. But I did not want to wait until February either....

Anyone else going for the Playpad or Playpad Pro?

Is there any word on if this will need an interface app yet, or if it will work natively with Android OS... On the same note, Six Axis interface app requires root access for several of it's config features. While I appreciate the root community, I wanted my 700 to remain pure. If it does require an interface app, will this also require root?

If it doesn't need an app at all, I guarantee I'm getting it. If it does, I'll still probably with a 90 percent chance get it..
