Stuck on "push PS button"

Post by Akha » Wed Mar 14, 2018 2:23 pm

Hello! It seems to be common problem, but I can't find any answer (

I have DIY USB (Arduino leonardo + UART-USB convertor), Logitech Driving Force GT, Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian, Playstation 4.
I have updated firmware EMUG29PS4.hex with Gimx-launcher
I connect
- the wheel,
- the UART-USB convertor,
- the powered off DS4
to the Pi and Arduino to the PS4.
PS4 is powered on.
Then I starts Gimx-launcher, it looks like this (https://imgur.com/O14ma8O). When I press "Check" it returns "This config seems OK!".
Then I press "Start" and get this (https://imgur.com/RxsW1vF). When I press PS button on the wheel just nothing happens with PS4 but the wheel starts control mouse cursor in Raspbian o_o.

gimx-launcher 7.2 ARMv6
PS4 software 5.50

What should I do?

Just yesterday, when I wire it all up it worked fine, but today it reject all my attempts. (

Please post a log file for investigation
Generate a log file: select "Messages>Log file" in gimx-launcher before starting GIMX.
Reproduce the issue while generating the log file.
Stop GIMX, post the log file on pastebin and add the link into your post.

Sorry guys, it was issue with cable from arduino to PS4. I changed it and now it works just fine!
