    They can ban u for whatever they want. If you can't handle typing quoted words then you should just buy another controller. Don't tell me I haven't helped. And yes . u've managed to piss me off.

    Chill man...I can see why you've been banned before

    Only asked for a direct link as there are hundreds of these dongles knocking around, if we can pin point one that works then we all win!

    Have you managed to test it some more?

    Thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I lost a hope already...
    I'll try your solution today. I have couple of BT dongles at home, I hope that they will fit

    Luke...I think it will still come up as edr....I'm sorry - I'm no expert in USB BT dongles...all I know is what worked out of the 4 I tried.

    I have raised the issue of sixaxis app not pairing withing the X8 directly with MINIX. Hopefully I hear something back soon, I will inform you as soon as I know anything.
    Thanks for taking the time to come up with some kind of workaround

    Hey -I just want to confirm that the link 'danfozzy' posted is the BT dongle that worked for me. The link didn't show up on my phone when I originally replied. I hope other's have tried and gotten this to work as well. Please share your experience.

    We've sent our PS3 controller to AMLogic hoping to resolve this issue.

    There was an update of the sixaxis controller app yesterday. After the update I had no problem to connect my PS3 controller wireless on the minix with the Beta 2 Firmware.

    I'll try this myself tomorrow!
    If so that is great news :)

    It would still be nice if sixaxis controllers could be used without the need to root:)

    That's very unlikely to happen.
    But considering how easy it is to root and un-root Minix, I really don't see what the problem is.

    Why is that very unlikely?

    System access without root permissions?
  18. Vidman

    Why is that an issue for MINIX/amlogic?
  19. C@bleKill3r

    C@bleKill3r Member

    I believe it's the way the ps3 controller communicates over Bluetooth. I think you can get a partial connection without root but you need full permissions to the minix in order to make the necessary changes for full function.

    Ill also second that root and unroot is simple and opens up many other doors as well. Why wouldn't you want it rooted.
