Wireless Xbox 360 Controller on Nexus 7 and Android Tablets with Spinning Camera Fix

how to fix spinning wireless controllerThis is by far my favorite video I have created so far. Not only has this helped me use the Xbox Controller on games I couldn’t play before, but it required me to tune into my Engineer Problem Solving to look at why the Wired Controller Worked fine and the Wireless didn’t. Double Win for me and hopefully a success for you as well. So first lets just talk about the setup. You need of course an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. You also need the lovely OTG Cable. One more investment is a Xbox 360 Wireless Dongle for the controller. This is mean for the PC but also works on the Android, and quite lovely on emulators. However some of the games out there are not working with the controller even though the n64 emulator was working great. GTA3 , Dead Trigger, and others. The steps needed to solve this one, at least for this solution is a rooted device. But don’t worry Nexus 7 and Xoom users, I already have videos on that. Then you need to download Terminal Emulator for Android and type in the following commands one by one

cd /system/usr/keylayout/
mount -o remount,rw /system
cp Vendor_045e_Product_0291.kl Vendor_045e_Product_0719.kl
chmod 644 Vendor_045e_Product_0291.kl
chmod 644 Vendor_045e_Product_0719.kl

Restart System and Enjoy!!!!
