you can use a PS3 sixaxis easily if you're okay with a wired connection via an OTG connector:

Ive seen a video where someone used his tablet with that setup. do you have any info on how to set that up? Im not sure what ROMS it works with or what it takes to get it working

Only under 2 BIG conditions:
=> Your kernell must allow it
=> Your USB host must be powered

I hgave that kind of USB adapter since my Windows Mobile Toshiba TG01 had a powered USB (he could read USB flash memory, handle a mouse....or usb gamepad)

It doesn't work on my HD2 or my Sensation, the USB host is NOT powered.

So a singme USB adaptor won't be enough except for some tablets


Something I have realized with my G2X and CM7 RC1. Its something Id hope will roll into the ROM eventually.
for now Im still looking for a good 2nd bluetooth gamepad haha

I posted this in the SGSII forum first, but its not particularly specific to the SGSII so I thought I would post it here also:

I would think about getting the Phonejoy's new dual-analog stick version, it should have better production throughput than the first - its definitely much better than the first (I have both).

Heres some more information I made on it:

...and here is the obligatory Youtube video demo:

Sweet that looks like it might work great, the only reason I never bothered with the phonejoy before was lack of analog sticks.

Keep an eye on it, it will come up again shortly - production of the second controller will be much higher than the first. Also, clove.co.uk will be reselling, they will announce availability soon also.

Phonejoy have shipped a very small number of controllers to Mobilefun in the UK, I'd keep an eye on their site - they're likely to go very fast.
