    Anyway, I really don't understand why we can't have a root/unroot procedure!
    I would really like to use Tincore Keymapper in order to use my CLS controller:

    This works on my U1, but the commands are a mess!

    It's really pointless have a good machine like this without a good controller.
    And not anyone can afford to buy another controller only for this!

    U1 is a good machine, let's use it not only for kodi! :LOL:

    I game on my U1, but most emulation games. Neo Geo, MAME, SNES. You do need a good controller for those games.

    That's good! I love them! I bought a glorius GP2X some years ago! :whistle:
    But, with the power of the U1 I'd like to play new games as well!

    You see, one of the reasons I bought a box like this, is because I told to myself:"Well, kodi is good, but having android means that I could use (almost) all the apps on the Play Store".
    Now, I'm in front of the fact that I can't even play some good games!!

    I like the U1: a lot! But I am thinking that the next machine will be a homemade linux machine, with the freedom to do all I want (with sweat and tears, I know! :p )

    I didnt liked internal battery (saw a report of g01 after 6months of use it is dead). Also didnt liked BT gamepad, so i went for wireless one - logitech f710. Worth every cent.

    Happy with my Mars G01. It's been flawless

    Which is better for the Minix U1 Nano wireless or Bluetooth?

    XBOX 360 controllers work with U1, both wired & wireless,
    we have tested them.

    (The center green LED would keep blinking though, we can't stop that)
  15. Think this is what I'm going get

    I've been using this controller for for nearly 2 weeks and it's been perfect

    I bought a ps3 dualshock 3 bt controller today because I have Sony z3 and a minix x8 h plus. I know it works OK with the z3 because i've tried it. But then I read I have to root my x8 h plus to get the ps3 controller to work with Bluetooth(or have it wired)

    I' M not comfortable rooting my minix box by the way.

    After reading this thread closely it seems the better option might be to get a refund for the ps3 controller and buy either the G01 or G910. Would you agree?

    Would my minix a2 lite remote work at the same time also?

    Yes. I use g01 and minix a2 lite just fine

    Thanks RetrogamerX. Do I take it you just connect the G01's WiFi dongle to one of spare USB ports on the back of the neo x8 h plus?
    It doesn't conflict with the A2 lite remote dongle?

    I don't understand your question? I think of course RetrogamerX is talking about using the G01 and the A2 Lite at the same time… and of course both using their own RF (not WiFi) dongle…
    btw: we are here at the U1 section but I think it will also work without any problem at the X8 (I often use two different HID (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_interface_device) devices at the same time at different devices)...
