Controllers for All

You Can Now Play iOS Games with a Wii U Controller

Apple's MFi game controller support in iOS 7 allows third party developers to create external gamepads that support the iPad and iPhone. This should have opened many doors for mobile gaming on Apple devices, but unfortunately, most of the MFi game controllers on the market are too expensive. Not to mention, there are only a few that support both the iPad and iPhone, and most require a Lightning connection for them to work. This is why the jailbreak tweak Controllers for All was such a welcome addition to Cydia.

Controllers for All v.1.2

Controllers for All allows iOS gamers to use console controllers, such as the DualShock 4, to play games on their jailbroken devices. The tweak originally only supported Sony PlayStation controllers, but as promised, it has now been updated with Wii U and iPEGA 9025 support. The tweak works with all iOS 7 devices and is only a $1.99. That is a lot cheaper than shelling out $60 to $100 for a MFi-enabled gamepad from a third party developer.

PlayStation 4 DualShock Support Added to Controllers for All iOS Tweak

As promised, developer Ori Kadosh has added DualShock 4 support to the jailbreak tweak Controllers for All. This means iOS owners can now use a PlayStation 3 or 4 controller to play games on any device running iOS 7.

In case you missed it the first time around, Controllers for All single-handedly made jailbreaking relevant again by giving iOS users an affordable alternative to the expensive third-party iOS controllers on the market. The tweak allows users to save money by adding PlayStation DualShock support to iOS 7 devices. Controllers for All originally only supported PS3 controllers, but Kadosh is slowly making it compatible with other consoles. Hoepfully the Xbox 360 and Xbox One are next in line.

New Tweak Adds PS3 Dual Shock Support to iOS Devices

A new jailbreak tweak released to Cydia is going to cause iOS accessory makers some major headaches. As you probably already know, Apple added a MFi controller support in iOS 7. This allows developers to create third-party game controllers for the iPhone and iPad. A lot of controllers / gamepads have already been announced and released, but most of them have been met with lukewarm reviews and they can be expensive. But now iOS users with a jailbroken device can use a PlayStation 3 Dual Shock to play any game that features MFi support.

The tweak you'll need is called Controllers for All, and it can be found in Cydia’s ModMyi repo. Once installed you will also need a utility called SixPair and your Mac or PC to pair your PS3 controller to your device (You can download SixPair here). Pairing your iOS device to your controller is as easy as connecting both devices to your Mac or PC and clicking a button. The link above gives instructions for using SixPair with Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. You will also have to open Control Center and disable your Bluetooth connection for the tweak to work.
