Has anyone managed to get this to load as part of CBHC custom elf option?

I tried taking "Bloopair.rpx" and renaming it to custom.elf and placing it under "wiiu\apps\custom\" .... but this did not work. When I select custom.elf from the CBHC menu, I get "-2" error ..

I also tried using an app called rpl2elf.exe to convert the RPX file to ELF , and it also had the same issue - could not boot past a "-2" error .. I have no issues with other elf files using this method....

...was hoping someone could let me know if we can somehow get this working .. the idea here being that maybe we can autoboot it..

Thanks

For anyone who have a problem synching their ds4, follow the instructions in the OP but instead of pressing just the ps button, press the "share" button then the ps button and hold it for 5 seconds. Works on my Japanese wiiu! Thanks for this great HB Gary.

Bloopair version 0.5.0 is now released!
Changelog:
  • Support was added for third-party Switch controllers which don't have a valid Vendor and Product ID
  • Player LED patterns for the DualSense were updated to match the patterns of Wii U Pro Controllers
  • Bloopair now properly supports up to 7 controllers in supported games (e.g. Super Smash Bros. Wii U)

Loving the good work but does Bloopair work with wired controllers aswell?
Bloopair allows connecting controllers from other consoles like native Wii U Pro Controllers on the Wii U.
It temporarily applies patches to the IOS-PAD module responsible for Bluetooth controller connections.

Bluetooth. Not wired. Even the wii u itself (unmodded of course) can't use wired controllers. So, this tool will not be useful for you/for that.

What a lovely tool! This is nothing short of amazing. I am really impressed!
I only wish we could have such homebrew on every system out there. That would be something special.

Bloopair only needs to be run once per session to do its work; the app itself doesn't run in the background like WUPS. So while it's not what you're asking for, you can just run Bloopair first then run WUPS second to have both.

i think its not working running Bloopair>HBL>padcod

i just figured that accidentally that doing this xploit>mocha>bloopair>open some app then exit>HBL again>padcon and it works, its long process to do this.

i been hoping that in the future we can run bloopair along side with the other plugin at the same time.

tnx anyway.

You know you can press the home button on your "Pro" Controller and turn off the gamepad screen that way right?
