I have seen so many fellow members having trouble setting up ps3 dual shock to play games on android phones and tablets. So I'm starting this to help out the noobs trying to get their gaming fix on .

You need

1. A rooted Android device 2.2 plus
2. Official Sony ps3 dual shock controller
3. Sixaxis app from Google play store
4. A PC with the sixaxis pair tool downloaded from http://www.dancingpixelstudios.com/s...ler/about.html


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8cU...e_gdata_player
With that in mind watch this video I created covering the basics for profiles and initial set up.

I am in no way shape or form responsible for what you break or screw up. Nor am I affiliated with dancing pixels project.

This thread is for people to share profiles and settings they may use and for others who need help if they are experiencing problems.

Keep in mind using different display dpis will throw off profiles if they are shared.

What I did is:
1) downloaded/installed that sixaxis pair tool
2) plugged the PS3 controller into my computer
3) downloaded/installed sixaxis controller app to my Nexus 7
4) started the sixaxis controller app and hit Start, let it get to listening for controllers then I hit Stop
5) started the sixaxis pair tool
6) In the pair tool I changed the master to match the "local bluetooth address" at the bottom of the controller app screen on my Nexus 7
7) Unplug PS3 controller
8) On the Nexus 7 I hit Start again, wait for listening to controllers again
9) Hit the PS button on the PS3 controller
10) Done!

U have to make sure the Bluetooth address on your controller matches exactly that off your tablet. And make sure it is a official ps3 controller.

The instructions here are somewhat out of date, all pairing with PS3 controllers in Sixaxis Controller can now be done on the device itself via a USB OTG connection. No need to PC clients or anything like that. I have a video in my youtube channel showing how to do it now and how to set up touch emulation profiles. Will post it later when I get home.
