    Default Sixaxis will NOT pair with my s5

    I AM ROOTED. i have an s5 on sprint (i know i know sprint = ****) i downloaded the checker and it said everything was fine
    downloaded .6 apk of sixaxis controller and tried to connect... it would not just keeps flashing for ever. i then found one form while searching the deepest google i could and found a guy who said he used a blue tooth unlocker.. tried it and it didnt work.. installed the .7 apk of sixaxis controller and unlocked all the blue tooth boxes and i had it work. i was so happy i even had a second controller connected and was able to play smash brothers with 2 players and they didnt interfere with each other.. this happened once i tried today to re connect using the exact same steps and it will NOT work... why is this? why isnt anyone else having issues with this? there is almost no coverage on google. Thanks guys!

    ok i turned off the bluetooth unlocker. restart the phone. started the compatibility checker turned on the remote and it connected then i minimized that and turned on the sixaxis controller app and hit start and pushed the ps3 button and it connected. it as if the checker must be run first (at least on my 4.4.2 s5 on sprint) weird well at least i have a system now will update with any problems

    Where did you get the Bluetooth unlocker? I have a Galaxy S5 Active and even when connecting my phone and controller via OTG cable still can't get the two to pair.
