I have a rooted Stock Evo V 4G
And i want to say that the Moga works as well (it should work on non-rooted too)
Both the Pilot app works with officially supported games and the universal driver with some other games that support controllers
GTA 3 - yes
Sonic 4 ep1, deadspace - no
Those however require root, without root the analog will act as d-pads which can still be used on emulators!

Got the GS Controller...
Went out and got the GS Controller after I read the great news, unfortunately I can't get it to work with my Evo V. The bluetooth turns on and discovers the "GS Controller" and pairs, but it says connecting... for a split second and then just shows as a paired device. When I tap the paired device it says "touch any key to reconnect keyboard"

Does your phone display "connected" under GS Controller?

Not sure if it matters but two of the controller's LEDs (green & blue) blink until I press a button on the gamepad, after just paired.

I am back on the stock VM Rom and HBoot 1.5757

I am just an old school gamer trying to play up on the big screen mobile style. Sorry if I missed any info...thanx in advance for any help!

Went to my local GS and picked it up for $40. It worked perfectly for my Evo 3D and my Galaxy Tab 10.1! Emulator mapping was perfect, already set up for Shadowgun and Sonic CD and a few others. This and an MHL adaptor just made me a happy Evo 3D owner. Hope this helps anyone who was stumped like I was but didn't want to root.

So you just need to pair them up and i works? Since you are unrooted, you cannt run sixaxis compatibility checker....

picked up version 2 of this (red samurai), works out-of-the-box, as a bluetooth keyboard in pacman rom 21.0 (with the switch in back set to 'k') on an evo 3D

getting it to work on a stock evo V, not quite so simple...

@Venturesploring i had the same issue of it pairing, but not connecting, i don't know if this will work on version 1 or not, but what i did to get it to work with stock ICS was install "Bluez IME" from the play store, then within the page's description download and install "HID Enabler" (link near the bottom), then when in 'bluez IME Settings', choose "keyboard (HID)" for 'select device driver'

Updated game list on GameStop's Web page
Gamestop Red Samurai

I saw GameStop updated the new Bluetooth controller's web page with more games list that works with the controller. I know The Bard's Tale works also. Make sure the controller is in "G" (gamepad mode) on the back of the controller!

Can anyone PLEASE confirm whether or not this Red Samurai V2 controller works with a vanilla and *UNROOTED* HTC EVO 3D "out of the box" or even with the Bluez app? Please let me know, I'm going crazy here!
