I can connect my original Ps3 controller to my Z2 wired and this if working well but it's not working wireless after disconnecting the cable When I disconnect the cable all leds are blinking on my controller. My bluetooth is working fine and I'm on the latest stock 314 rooted and bootloader locked.

you have to pair via bluetooth to use wirelessly

perhaps try turning controler on
then phone bluetooth
then select ps3 controler

When I try to pair via bluetooth directly without cable my Z2 doesn't see the controller at all.

When connecting via Xperia connection it only works wired.

I'm sure my bluetooth function on my Z2 and controller is working just fine.

You can't find the controller because it is hidden. The only way to connect it with bluetooth is to write phone's Bluetooth adress to controller's memory. Try resetting dualshock 3(find in google how to do it). It helped me once when it didn't want to work. Hope it helps.

EDIT: That's also why USB cable is needed. To write things to controller's memory.

I have reset my controller with the reset button on the back and tried again but still no luck. I have tried my friends controller and it works flawlessly. I have tried to connect my controller with the sixaxis controller app and this worked as well. Any suggestions or shall I have to use the sixaxis controller app as I am rooted anyway?
