PS4 controller xu4



  • Hello.

    This question is for Odroid xu4 users. Does anyone could pair a PS4 bluetooth controller? I can only use the controller with a usb cable connected.
    Thanks.

    @joseluis Hi, of course it works, you need a bluetooth USB dongle because the XU4 has no internal bluetooth.



  • @OyyoDams Hello. I have the Odroid Bluetooth Module 2 connected but nothing happens when I try to pair the xu4 with a ps4 controller. Any idea?
    Thanks for your help

    @joseluis first, be sure your BT controler works with Recalbox.

    Then:

    • if you have a real PS4, turn it off
    • turn on Recalbox
    • turn on your PS4 controller
    • hit the RESET switch on the back of the controller
    • the controller turns off
    • turn on the controller again with HOME + SHARE at the same time for a while, until the blue light blinks
    • in Recalbox, pair it in bluetooth options


  • @OyyoDams Unfortunately I have done all the directions you gave me but nothing happened. I contacted Odroid developers and they said: "We think Recalbox Kernel or Bluez stack has no proper driver for PS4...Report the issue to the Recalbox developers.". I have watched videos from people pairing ps4 controllers on a Raspberry pi 3 but not on a xu4. Any idea about what is happening?

    Thanks again

    @joseluis I do have a PS4 controler and a XU4, and it works. But I use a USB BT dongle, the one available on the recalstore. That's why I told you "first, be sure your BT controller works with Recalbox". I don't know if the "Module 2" works. Maybe @Substring can answer.



  • @joseluis are you sure you BT dongle works ok on Recalbox ? can you SSH and then give me the result of hciconfig ?



  • @Substring this is the result:

    hci0: Type: BR/EDR Bus: USB

    @joseluis that sounds good. You can try to follow this procedure to pair it in command line. Then feel free to post here the result.



  • @OyyoDams @Substring You are geniuses. Problem solved. Thanks for the time and patience!!!
