GIMX 3.0

Post by Matlo » Mon Aug 25, 2014 9:47 pm

This release brings PS4 support over USB in both Ubuntu and Windows!

PS4 support over USB works using the DIY USB adapter.
Note: when gimx is running it is required to have a DS4 connected with a micro USB cable, for authentication purposes.
On Windows, the DS4 driver has to be replaced with the libusbK driver.

I tryed to use Arduino-Leonardo(no overwritten bootloader) and PL2303HX-UART module. its work!
but ubuntu only. On windows(win7, 64bit), GIMX application down A few seconds later after PS4 connection.
(error message: libusb_submit_tansfer: Input/Output Error.\n adapter_forward_data_out failed)

I believe this project will become better. Because this project is very cool. ;)

Thanks for reading to the end my poor english.

The issue probably lies in the PL2303 windows driver. You should try a USB to UART adapter that is listed in the wiki, like the CP2102.

You probably forgot to replace the DS4 driver with the libusbK driver.

You still should make sure your PL2303 adapter is 5V tolerant.
If it's not 5V tolerant it can be damaged in the long term.
