    So I ran the compatibility checker for the sixaxis controller, and it said it would work. I've followed all instructions, but I just can't seem to get this thing to work. Has anyone else tried this?

    his with hdmi mirroring is one of the things I was looking forward to most about getting root.

    *edit

    hmm, a comment in the market might hold my answer. Guess I'll have to wait and see, lol.
    *again
    some progress I guess, in that I get a connection message, but I still can't get the controller to do anything.

    I got the sixaxis controller to function using the Blueputdroid app available on the market. Requires root.

    for a second I thought I had it with blueputdroid, but I can't get it to pair with the controller. I like that app though, be nice if it worked for win7.

    I must be doing something wrong, I can't even get a wiimote to work.

    The first one is to use the contoller with emulators and such. The other one is to use the phone as a keyboard for ps3.

    I'm trying to get a controller working for my emulators. So far I'm notnhaving any luck.

    yeah I misunderstood what you were trying to accomplish. I can control my ps3 with my d3 like a remote for movies or whatever. Haven't tried using a controller on my phone, but it sounds like a cool idea.

    Sorry to get a little off topic but i don't want to make a new tread to ask it. Is there an app that allows me to use my camera on my phone for voice/video chat?
