    PS3 controller via bluetooth without root

    I have a xoom wifi unrooted. I read that folks with transformers can use the OTG cable through their keyboard dock USB port and set up their tablet to connect via bluetooth with the PS3 controller.

    I am able to connect my PS3 controller to my xoom using the OTG but I would like to do it through bluetooth instead.

    I was able to set the address for the PS3 controller to be the same as the bluetooth address of my xoom. My xoom sees the PS3 controller via bluetooth but it won't pair. I get as far as entering the pairing code 0000 but it doesn't connect. I feel like I'm so close but i don't know what else to do. Anyone have any ideas?

    You have to be rooted to use the sixaxis controller app with Bluetooth.

    Yeah, I was hoping to be able to use it without the sixaxis app like the transformer can.

    Sixaxis app is a must anyways for mouse and touch emulation for controlling the os and android based games that dont offer a gamepad set up so you don't have to touch the tablet at all while its docked. It also let's you know the ps3 controllers charge level.

    Also the transformer requires the keyboard dock or large dongle for a usb port while the Xoom has a micro USB built in you have the right tab you just need to root it.

    Yeah, I ended up using the otg cable and it works fine for shadow gun. But it doesn't work for modern combat or nova. Oh well. I really don't want to root my Xoom.
