    Default Root, Sixaxis with ps3 controller?

    So I ordered my shield, it should be on the way soon.. has anyone tried rooting, then using Sixaxis and a dualshock 3? Or does anyone else have any viable controller options since the controller is usually backordered and a staggering $60...? Can't find anything on this but I'm surprised more people aren't looking for these kind of options.

    Yes, it works. I rooted with towelroot, installed sixaxis, paired my ps3 controller, and bam!!!! It was off without a hitch 😁

    Prefect!! So glad someone else has done this!! And you rooted with the same process I was planning on. Love it! How does it operate for you? Any issues whatsoever?

    I'm also interested in giving this a shot, I would hate to have to go buy a controller when I have PS3 controllers laying around

    Yeah that should be a bundled item.. $60 is just ridiculous. At least have an option for original shield portable owners to use those as controlling devices.. That's something else I'm going to have to try

    No issues, works great. Funny thing is I'm still gonna use the shield controller since I got it. Just wanted to test out the ps3.

    Does the ps4 controller work as well with root?

    So I got this working no problem, but I have another idea.. could one get the original shield portable to work as the controller for the shield tablet? It would be perfect as one could easily secure the shield tab onto the controller. It'd be like a sweet huge screened, k1 processing shield portable. Any ideas on how to do that?
