    I am on 4.1.2 (jelly bean) and I cant root. An OTA update ruined my root with out me being prepared.

    So Id like to play games with a proper controller (Wii, PS3, 360) but I cant really find a blue tooth solution thanks to Google fopping up BT stacks with jelly bean (which is pretty poor btw).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    My ideal setup is this.
    Controller >Bluetooth> Phone
    Phone running emulator, mirrored display HDMI to my TV.

    My phone would be pretty far away from where im sitting so a OTG cable would be kinda out of the question.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. THANKS.

    Well I would read around on xda and other similar sites and check if there is any way to make you rooted again.
    If you do, here is how you can get it working with bluetooth(ps3 controller, the 360 controller is only usable with cable:

    Look or wait for a new root method to surface that's been adapted to your updated OS

    Also my knowledge may be outdated, but 4.1.2 and on supposedly breaks Wii Remote compatibility.

    You should google together keywords, "root xda 4.1.2 yourphonemodelnameormodelnumber"
