[Q] WiimoteController for Epic, anyone get it to work?

Has anyone had any success so far trying to pair a wiimote to the Epic?

I keep getting a bluetooth not found when I try with WiimoteController.

If I try to connect just using the bluetooth connectivity app, the phone sees the wiimote, but there is no way to find the pairing code.


Are there any known bluetooth game pads that can be paired with the epic and button mapped?

Talked to the dev of the wiimote app. He says it's incompatible with Samsung devices, no plans on making it compatible.

well, it's not compatible, but there is a game grip coming out soon that perhaps rivals or even surpasses the wiimotes usability.

He can't make it compatible as it most likely has to do with how Samsung implements Bluetooth. I dont understand why phone companies are limiting the devices that can connect to their phones as it just limits functionality. Cyanogen Mod 6 fixed this for the EVO... so it's possible a custom rom can do the same for the Epic.

I heard that was backwards and that the epics bluetooth stack is too new and not fully compatible with older devices. Maybe the new wiimotes coming out with motion plus inside will work.

From what I understand it has to do with the samsung 3.0 bluetooth. No Galaxy S phones have been able to get it to work....yet. I would love this for my Captivate, but you Epic people have a keyboard. Better than nothing

My epic connects to my bluetooth in my 2005 Lexus without problem. Wii is a whole lot newer.

from what ive seen around the block, the bluetooth pairing code isnt null (no password) but the password is actually the MAC ID reversed. so if the bluetooth mac is 01:02:03:04:05 then the password would be 0504030201. never really had the time to test this or try this out but someone might and we will be one step closer

I just saw a video where a guy was showing off n64oid on a nexus s using a wiimote via bluetooth and since that is a galaxy s variant I was wondering if this is any hope for a wiimote working with the epic.
