Talking Status on PS3 Remote for Android

I have contacted Sony and asked if they have plans to create the software and if they dont if they could release the API/Software needed for the community to create their own solutions. I will keep you updated on their response.

I'd love to see this implemented too. I've searched whole bunch of forums today, and nobody has solution yet

i would gladly buy this app...


Maybe now that the files are out for the ps3 to be jailbroken, then you could dive deeper into the ps3.. Maybe we could even install an app on the ps3 that allows our phones to control it?

This may be something to send an email to some of the guys hacking on the ps3!!!

I want bluetooth remote on my Galaxy S to be able to control the PS3 so I can program it step-wise to play GT5 B-Spec races all day/night to rack up credits. It just needs the odd button press now and again to go through the race.

A frivolous task for sure. But I'd pay for a macro programmable bluetooth remote for Android that could control the PS3. I'm sure there'd be other things I could do with it besides GT5.

Default PS3 Remote

I would imagine that now since the JB has been in the wild for sometime regarding the PS3 and about 2 weeks the master encryption key was hacked by a crypto guy and we can now install any version firmware, custom firmware, homebrew software, and any OS. I would imagine it would be pretty easy to write a web controlled interface for the PS3 and then use Android to control it via a simple HTTP or HTTPS connection ? Maybe I am mistaken but I think it would be quite possible if not pretty easy for a good developer. I am thinking something similar to Tivo Remote. SOrry if I am repeating or mispeaking.
I may not agree with what you say but I will defend your right to say it with my life.

c/p

Unfortunately Android doesn't support what is needed for this (L2CAP is what I've read is needed). The Android issue is

You can help by starring it.
