After a year of trying to find a working Gamepad for non rooted Evo 3D, this popped up out of nowhere.

*Gamestop. com, search "Tablet Wireless Bluetooth Controller"

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.

Nice find. I have been wondering myself. I am rooted, but all I ever saw was you needed to be on cm7 to use them.

Evo 3D taking it to Redline V2!

Good find OP, will definitely be getting this, no more having to dual boot to a AOSP ROM just to play emulators with my Wiimote!

Yep, that's the one. They had plenty at my GS so I'm sure they have them at most of them too.

I picked up that Gamestop gamepad as well and it's working great with my EVO 3D running Infected ROM 1.4.2. Hooked it up to my LCD TV with my MHL adapter and now I have a complete NES system with every single game ever available all in my little phone. Brings back so many memories. Great find!

I bought one of these as well online, the problem I ran into is that the left analog stick is inverted and changing the settings in game doesn't solve the problem. What I mean is that with the left analog stick up and down movements registers as left and right and vice versa.

With an emulator I can assign the stick the right way but the listed movement is still wrong, but with a game such as ShadowGun I can't map the controller. Did any of you guys experience this problem? I called Gamestop and they said I could bring it back to the store for a swap or refund. Thanks in advance.

I purchased one of these from their online store. It works with my E3D and my touchpad running android. I have a little problem with occasional lag (like it takes a split second to wake up the button). Anyone else having that problem? Maybe i need send it back for a replacement?

Same issue here, it seems like the controller is programmed for portrait gaming, the controller is offset 90 degrees when you go to play a landscape game. Wish there was an app that would run and allow for mapping of the controls or at least rotate the axis's with the phone.
