    Question OTG 4.2 connectivity

    hey everyone, just a quick question. i dont have a nexus 7 yet, but i will get one soon. i really want to use a ps3 controller to play n64 snes gba games etc. with an OTG cable. i dont want to root it though. so does it still support ps3 controllers on the 4.2 OS natively or must i root it? thanks in advance

    You don't need to root, but I suggest you do, since lets you add controls to any game and play wirelessly, for only $2. You need to be rooted though.

    Rooting a nexus device is far more streamlined and easier since its meant to be an open device unlike the carrier bloatware loaded crap.

    Chances of bricking the Nexus 7 are negligible.... Worst outcome you might reasonably get would be having to reflash stock. Use WugFresh Nexus kit and it's all easy
