    @rdnckreaper.. This has been said many times. I'm rooted and of course using the app...it only works wired. Are you saying yours works wirelessly? I'm guessing no and want to mention again that I'm only requesting advice from those that have actually gotten this to work.

    and I want to mention again that I got it to work wirelessly with the six axis app.

    And I want to ask again..... Does that mean the neo must be rooted?

    Yes you must be rooted! Kreaper, would you mind of I messaged you privately. I would really appreciate your help in creating a guide for others including myself if you've managed to get this to work.

    Mine works only wired with sixaxis app. I get segmentation fault or it just hangs. The app will pair the controller successfully but once unplugged it won't connect. I've also used the PC USB pair tool. BT address matches system. Tried without any other USB devices in minux. Tried via stock firmware, beta 8 and 9. Also tried connecting via android bt connection which detects the controller but prompts for pin. Typical pins don't work.

    i dont think so! sixaxis & Bluetooth only works on rockchip devices, no one has managed to solve it on any amlogic device yet so i don't think it will ever come to amlogic sorry

    Thanks Luke... I believe that is the sad truth here. I just wish the devs had something to say about it and that everyone else offering false hope and fruitless suggestions would move to another forum. Yes kreaper, without a confirmation - that means you.

    Hi,

    I always have a problem to use PS3 SixAxis Controller in the X8-H latest beta firmware : 002 Beta 9 (10/18/2014)

    Luke- believe it or not, I finally got this to work. Sixaxis app no good for MINIX x8...what works is USB/BT joystick app paired with a CSR usb BT dongle. The app is free and let's you pair with Bluetooth other than built in (what sixaxis app lacks). I found the dongle for 8 bucks for a 2 pack and they actually sent me 4 instead. Look for "Cronus compatable" on amazon but I think BT with CSR is key. I'll post a full guide on this later in the week after ive tested it a bit more.

    I can find a dongle with CSR no issue in the UK, can only find Cronus compatible ones in the USA

    Hopefully it is the csr ones

    I wish I had a definite answer for you. Honestly I tried 4 before I found 1 that worked. I can't even tell what specific spec makes it work. All I know for sure is the one I mentioned does. At least the dongles are relatively cheap enough for trial and error. Good luck.

    Can you provide the link to the shop for the one that worked so I've got something to compare against a known working one?

    Search Amazon for "USB Bluetooth dongle Cronus compatible" its 8 bucks for 2 pack and they are gold.

    That's your review on there?

    Someone might say I'm advertising these dongles....providing a link is pushing it. I've already been banned for much less.

    you can't be banned for helping the community get round an issue that probably wont be fixed.

    I'm not after upsetting you but to say you have 1 working dongle out of 4 that you have tried and not point out which one is working doesn't help.

    Just need to try source them outside the US as they won't ship any were else
