    The APK to BAR process failed. If someone has more experience coding then I do maybe they can fix the one error. Plus I believe the Bluetooth capabilities for the playbook at this moment would limit this.

    Default just tried it

    I got the bar file to work and managed to install it on my playbook but it keeps searching for Bluetooth address so it can give you the address to type into the pair tool on your pc i thought i could work around that by going into Bluetooth settings on my BlackBerry and type the address from there into the pc it paired my controller with this address but it didnt search for it on the playbook as it was still searching for the address i tried this on my phone a while back and i had the same problem until i rooted my phone as i am on the current update of bb os i can not root it as of yet to see if that is the problemSixaxis Controller?-img_00000010.jpgSixaxis Controller?-img_00000008.jpg

    Android apps on PB can't access bluetooth (this is shown clearly in the screenshot posted by Thomasrox3), and therefore this app does not and will not work.

    If you see typos, it's because I didn't post from my Z10.

    I have seen no indication that Android apps can access bluetooth on the Z10 either, so I would assume not.

    Even if they could access it, there is a good chance the app wouldn't work, given potential differences in bluetooth stack etc. between the PB and Android devices (these sorts of apps don't even work for all Android devices to the best of my knowledge).

    Tested Sixaxis Controller 0.7.4 on 10.2.1.1925, still no dice. Errors out stating device isn't rooted. It won't find the Bluetooth MAC address. Using the device bluetooth MAC does not work either.

    Before you try to come off as being a know it all, you should know that I read the entire thread. Now, know this knowledge if I neglected to leave it out. I'm running the latest leaked OS on a BlackBerry Z30. Android apps supporting Bluetooth is now working, the Android Runtime shows as rooted. This thread is/was nearly a year old. Many advancements have been made since this thread was started, so thank you but no thank you for your un-needed rude advice. I'm sharing updated information, i.e. just trying to help out.
