You need a Dualshock 4 to start using a PS4.

So, I was confirmed that step 8 is good (no authentication in emups4pairing).
It also seems that without authentication, the emulated controller can work a few time before being rejected by the ps4. It could be sufficient to achieve steps 2 to 4.

Thus, I made a quick try with a linux gadget fs version of emups4pairing. Unfortunately, I have the same problem I encountered with emups3
(see https://gimx.fr/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2 ... 537#p15528)
the kernel module discards messages and I do not get it in my user space app. The discarded message is the one with ps4 bth address (funny as it is the same message which is discarded in the emups3...).
So I get the ps4 bth address using some kernel debug and hard coded it in my app. But this is not sufficient for the ps4 to recognize the pairing sequence. Maybe I am missing something.

Anyway, I will firstly try to solve this module problem and then try again.
