No, As I have already said, BT dongles are not supported. Google removed BT USB support in Android 4.2

Reading this thing with wireless and etc I was wondering if any of you know a wireless gamepad being sold (not bluetooth). I got a tvbox but it doesn't work with bluetooth (sixaxis infamous msg segmentation fault). A similar device as those wireless mouses with a usb receiver.

The tronsmart g01 I guess:

Or a xbox360 one with usb receiver should work too. What TVbox is the one you have? because it's weird sixaxis controller doesn't work, unless it's an amlogic s802.

I'll take a look at your suggestion skelton! My box is the tronsmart s89-h (with finless 1.9). Somewhere at freaktab Bob said it wasn't fixed yet, the bluetooth thing.

I have a cheap playasia pad with usb wire and works very well. This is a sure thing, and I know those wireless pads are too (my mouses are), but the bluetooth are always picky... doesn't work because of this, that, etc etc. What a nightmare. To have it working on my pc I had to download an app, configure, check, re-check.. uf....

I have a M8, which is also an amlogic s802, and other BT pads work, like ipega ones, Wamo, even the OUYA one. Only sixaxis is problematic in amlogic s802. Most probably because Amlogic BT stack is kind of broken, or perhaps is SeLinux, who knows.... In freaktab there are "devs" that have the source code for your box, but they don't share it to other people, so I don't think they fix it, because I don't see much development for them. I suppose Amlogic devs will actually fix the issue.

Perhaps stane1983 is the man, or at least is the only real dev at that forum that compiles kernels, makes changes and seems to know what he is doing.

I am personally not making roms for amlogic s802, (not public ones at least) because I don't have source code, so I will leave the people with source code to make the job.

Hi Skelton, i remember you, or maybe someone else, said in another topic that there was no support for usb dongles for the G5A. The nvidia shield has support for them, isn't that right?

Skelton probably knows for sure but if you mean a bluetooth dongle the nvidia shield has built in bluetooth! The portable and the tablet lol.

I think the wireless pad you showed me is the way to go. I'm going to get one then. It works on everything that has a usb, so it's fine for me. There's no way to replace the battery one day, but plugged with usb also works, I guess.

Hey DoggyDogg, I ordered a G5A from Geekbuying at end of September, is that also what you are getting from them?  I just got an email from them saying that they will be in stock to dispatch on the 12th October.  Gutted it will take so long for delivery,  its a little annoying how site states in stock but that isn't strictly true.

Hi
I was talking to geekbuyings rep on the site here before I made my purchase , 2 x gpd g5a consoles and 2 x elephone p2000 mobile phones , there was 5 days public holidays from 1st until 5th of October , I ordered on the 1st when they were off work
I know it can be frustrating waiting for stuff but I have been buying from China & Hong Kong for years now so I know what to expect , if you have ever bought anything from banggood , "which is an excellent company by the way "  you would be ready for a 5 week wait . So I always buy and expect at least a month , that way you won't be disappointed :)
Actually I will be making a few more purchases from geekbuying tonight . They will probably just be stocking fillers for Xmas but I fancy a minix neo x8-h  so maybe that aswell if the wife allows lol , I am a seasoned banggood customer but I now find geekbuying a lot cheaper and I here that there shipping is a week or so less so happy days all around :)

Yeah I'm in the UK.

I paid for the DHL shipping so hopefully once stocked/shipped shouldn't be too long.  They said the 12th so hopefully just a week to wait from then.
I have confidence in Geekbuying, they answered my query quick enough at least and you and others speak highly enough so just have to wait.  Problem is i'm impatient! and only just discovering the android tablet retro gaming scene - feel like i'm missing out!  (Enough excited rambling!)

Will update when i receive G5A or know more.  Seems a good community here and have really helped me choose the device I want.

Haha , I'm sure your exited ! I am only into android myself and so bought the g5a , I had a psp with upgraded firmware until about 2 years ago , needs a new battery just but never got around to it ,I love emus so these were the choice , I seen this forum and have been reading on the forum for around a year now trying to decide and watching the android /emu scene , the thing that sold the g5a to me was the sticks , shape , skeltons firmware . I've been watching jxd for ages and I didn't fancy one and held on , have just came back to the forum after a long while .  I'm wanting a 7" and like the ipega 9700 or gpd g7 but I think I will wait because GPD are using the better RK3288 so I'm hopeing that they will bring out a better version of the G7 soon :) maybe with a better D-pad ? Anyhow maybe I should have introduced myself to the forum scince I'm new

Bad news - got email from geekbuying today telling me that the G5A is out of stock and they will not be getting anymore, they have offered me the JXD 7300 but I need to pay difference, don't fancy it so have asked for a refund and told them that I am disappointed that it has taken 10 days to inform me of this.

I have since ordered from the amazon seller, cost a little more but just hoping I get it now!

I felt the same about the JXD devices, GDA seem to fair slightly better in reviews and the firmware from Skelton sounds great.  Anyway, hopefully will get device eventually.  If this fails than I may also end up waiting for new releases.

Hope you hear better news from geekbuying - perhaps you will get the last 1!

First the G58, and now even the G5A? I thought that this was their most successful model. Or maybe they will just cancel all their actual projects in order to focus just at the new ones?
