    Default Can I use the wireless XBox 360 controller on the Nexus 10

    Can I use a wireless XBox 360 controller with the associated wireless USB Gaming Receiver on the Nexus 10? I can find documentation that indicates you can use an XBox controller but it doesn't specify if it is with the wireless gaming receiver or if it is with the corded XBox controller. XBox wireless gaming receiver works with the Nexus 7, does that guarantee that it will work with the Nexus 10?

    Thanks in advance

    You should be able too. I don't have a wireless receiver to check for you though.

    Yes, you can use both wireless with adaptor and wired. You may have to alter a file for the wireless adaptor to prevent spinning, which needs rooting but this may have been sorted I will Jellybean by now. Do a quick Google search for android+360 controller, there are plenty of tutorials available.

    Will this work with a Playstation 3 controller too?

    To answer my own question. I purchased the USB Gaming Receiver (and the OTG cable) and was successfully used the xbox controller on the Nexus 10. So YES you can use the wireless xbox controller on the Nexus 10.

    So you used this? Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows: Video Games
    Did you have any spinning with controller connected or need to root?

    Yes, I used the Amazon receiver. However, I have since run into the spin issue. I was following a tutorial on how to fix the spin issue (that requires root) but it is specific to the Nexus 7. In the Nexus 7 tutorial the directions talk about copying a file with the name vendor_045e_product_0291.kl. Unfortunately this file does not exist in the Nexus 10. Don't know if I can use the Nexus 7 version of this file or if I need to use a different file. Currently looking for a Nexus 10 tutorial fix but have not found anything yet.

    ....

    O.K. Here is an update. I found a snippet out there that talked about using logcat to see what controller profile was being used. So I used logcat to get the following.

    I/EventHub( 385): New device: id=5, fd=323, path='/dev/input/event4', name='Generic X-Box pad', classes=0x80000341, configuration='', keyLayout='/system/usr/keylayout/Generic.kl', keyCharacterMap='/system/usr/keychars/Generic.kcm', builtinKeyboard=false, usingSuspendBlockIoctl=true, usingClockIoctl=true

    To which I derived that I needed to copy the Generic.kl instead of my missing vendor_045e_product_0291.kl file. So using the Nexus 7 instructions I copied my Generic.kl to the new Vendor_045e_Product_0719.kl, changed permissions and rebooted my device. Which when all was said and done accomplished nothing. The games that didn't have spin issues before still work as they did and the games that had spin issues still have spin issue.

    What I am thinking is that I need to plug in a wired XBox controller and see what file it creates. Then I need to figure out what file to copy it to (but I'm not sure how I am going to do that).

    If anyone has answers or suggestions please pass them along.
