Question first: has anybody figured out where/how the PS3 pairs with usb/bluetooth devices, where it stores this data(mac addresses, etc). Second question, would it be possible to write a wireless pairing app(such as for using a PS3 controller on an android device without hooking it up via usb) to pair controllers to the PS3 without plugging up the USB cable? The reason i'm asking is because I have a non-backwards compatible 80 GB PS3 that has non-functional USB ports - I don't know why they stopped working, but they haven't worked for well over two years now. I can still use the PS3 because I had paired it with my bluetooth media remote prior to this so I use it mainly for Movian/Showtime and some Netflix. I can do remote play on my PS Vita(set it up before the USB ports died), but this is obviously not ideal. So anyway, I'm just wondering if there's a way to manually pair a PS3 controller(sixaxis specifically) by writing to the PS3 flash or by using some kind of homebrew on the PS3/PC. This may not be the best place to ask, but I have done plenty of googling these last couple of years. Thanks for taking a look.
