Sixaxis Enabler


NO ROOT, NO PAIRING. Enable supported devices to use wired PS3 DualShock 3/Sixaxis Controller natively. All you need is an Android device with USB-Host support, and connection cable (USB-OTG cable is needed for device with no built-in USB Host port). You can avoid the need of rooting, and skip the hassle of pairing the controller when switching between devices.

After the controller is enabled you can use it with games and mapping tools which support native controller (e.g. GTA, Dead Trigger, Shadow Gun, GameKeyboard).

NOT ALL DEVICES AND AFTERMARKET CONTROLLERS ARE SUPPORTED, AND ONLY WORK WHEN CABLE IS CONNECTED.

If it is working with your device please share the information in comments, otherwise please get a refund and report to [email protected]


Common Problem
1. The #1 reason for failure is an incorrect/incompatible cable, if the app cannot detect the controller please go through the troubleshooting section.
2. Another common problem is insufficient power provided by the device, in this case an external powered USB Hub is needed.
3. Finally, incompatibility mainly come from lacking Sixaxis support from Firmware, without rooting the only solution is waiting for a Firmware updated.


General Troubleshooting Tips
1. make sure your PS3 controller is working with the USB cable properly, when plugging into a PC, windows should detect and add it as new gamepad although windows won't response to button press.
2. make sure your OTG cable is working with your device, test with an USB keyboard/mouse if possible
3. make sure nearby PS3 (or any other devices you have paired with the the controller) is powered off, otherwise the controller may try to connect with those device through Bluetooth instead.
4. if you have ever installed any other apps which can work with PS3 controller directly, you may need to uninstall them.

When using this hooked up to a TV, 3mtr cable and PS3 controller it seems to have a faster response than other apps of the same kind only slight but noticeable. :-)

Nice Pretty cool. Works fine with my galaxy note 10.1 and the coolest thing is that it doesnt require root access.

Finally! I have been looking for this! I made a micro usb with host tk mini b usb for ease of connection. Thus eliminating the otg usb port and mess of wires. I tried something similar with xbox controllers but wasn't able to get a few keys to map. Absolutely worth it! Thanks guys! Also I am using the galaxynote2 and playing games such as gta and max Payne is an absolute blast!
