From what I know, there is no bluetooth in this loader, it supports USB plugged joysticks only and USB keyboards!... never tested it know 100% sure but I'm pretty convinced this is the case!

So using the bluetooth link posted, can we control the bootloader without plugging in a sixaxis or a keyboard?

I am trying to figure out how to use my sixaxis to do this but I have no idea.

Do we just paste the files from the .tar into a folder with the otheros or is there more to it than that?

Thanks in advance
