View Full Version : PS4 Controller working on the Ouya wirelessly

01-08-2014, 08:54 AM
Just wanted to share how I got my ps4 controller to connect wirelessly to my ouya. I did this by using a Cronusmax usb dongle and a bluetooth 2.1 usb dongle . The cronusmax works by fooling the ouya into thinking that the ps4 controller is a xbox 360 controller when picked up through bluetooth. All the controls on the basic controls are working great using the ps4 controller. Unfortunately, the trackpad does not work which was my main motivation to get this to work but overall i'm glad it works. For the bluetooth dongle I used my a JVC branded one from my car stereo which worked perfectly in syncing the ps4 controller. I'll try to upload a video tomorrow of it in action

Keep us up to date on any issues.
Trackpad, doesn't work at all or just with issues?

Trackpad does not work at all.

There also is a problem when the controller sits idle for a while that the controller becomes unresponsive. It comes back once the cronusmax is unplugged is plugged in again. But I don't think thats the ouya cause it did the same thing on my ps3. I will follow up.

Is the Cronusmax usb dongle necessary to connect the DS4 to the ouya? Can you please make a tutorial.

The only solution I found requires the cronusmax dongle.

It's real simple all you need is to buy the cronusmax and follow the instructions to set it up to your PC. Make sure to have your cronusmax updated to the latest firmware and then sync your ps4 controller to the cronusmax using a Bluetooth 2.1 usb adapter that plugs into the input of the cronusmax. Then plug the dongle into your ouya and you're set.
