GIMX over Bluetooth for PS4

Post by bryonus »

Hi all,

I found this tutorial while trying to find a way to use my wired USB mouse and keyboard to connect to my PS4 without having to unplug them from my PC.

I'm wondering if this is still possible. I notice this was done on Linux but when I download GIMX on Windows the output options don't include Bluetooth/PS4. I grabbed version 3.5 and it also doesn't have what I need. So I have a few questions:
Will this still work?
Will this work in Windows?
and if not, what's the lowest resource option to have this work the same way?

No, gimx over bluetooth only works on linux..
over bluetooth: works with GNU/Linux (PS3, PS4) only. A compatible bluetooth dongle is required. A USB development board such as a Teensy 2.00 is required for pairing the bluetooth dongle with the PS4.

This is just an idea, you can use a live Linux distribution that has persistence so your settings are saved. Then you can just boot from it on your current hardware.

The other option would be to use a Raspberry Pi setup
Please Remember to Post your Log file in the support section , that way its easier and faster to start identifying the issue thus helping you to sort it out so you can enjoy GIMX :D .
