Repair DS4 to GIMX

Post by Cybereu » Sun Mar 13, 2016 8:59 pm

Its possible to repair a DS4 to GIMX without doing the hole process ?
I had paired my DS4 to ps4 again but i want to use it with GIMX.

Code: Select all

ds4tool -m <dongle address> -l <link key>
The link key is the second item in the ~/.gimx/bluetooth/<dongle address>/linkkeys file.

I know this is old but I just had to go through this myself so I figured I would share what I did to make it easier for me.

This works if you only have one BT adapter and is probably the use case for most everyone.

repair.sh

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

DONGLE_ADDR=$(ls ~/.gimx/bluetooth | head -1)
LINK_KEY=$(cat ~/.gimx/bluetooth/$DONGLE_ADDR/linkkeys | head -1 | awk '{print $2}')
ds4tool -m $DONGLE_ADDR -l $LINK_KEY

This is possible with gimx-launcher since GIMX 6.0.
Click on "New/Repair", and then repair.
Please let me know if it does not work.
