I never mentioned that imo. But if i did, i wouldnt put in on github ;) i want to make it to work with my 2nd hand hori pad fps4 controller as well, but its a bit diffetent to the sony controller (however it works when you connect it straight to the ps4 so something to find out.

Making it work without genuine controller need some serious hacking or cloning keys.. Both violating sony's (copy)rights so i wont burn my hands on that

Must have been me then xD
if the hori pad works, what is the reason for tinkering further?
does it auth in another way, if even at all?

would it really violate the (copy)rights, to send some data that looks like a controller... hmm bugger.

Thank you Mysli0210,

That link you gave me was quite useful, but i already found it by another URL, almost identical information.
What bothered me is why the Hori FPS pad4 did not work as Authentication device

I made a special USB cable and sniffed on the D- and D+ lines, parsed the signals and made a Hori PAD 4 emulator.
Strange thing is that now it keeps working (even after 17 mins) while doing nothing different like i did with the G29 emulation.

The only things i changed were the USB (config) descriptors, etc.

A bit offtopic but: The F1/F2 replies come without a valid CRC (they are 00 00 00 00). However the F1 replies still follow the layout described in the link above.
