    I have both my Wiimote + GPSPhone emulator already but I read that I need to download "BTstack" from Cydia in order to make the wiimote work.

    I searched in Cydia and all I see are BTstack mouse, BTstack keyboard, and BTstack GPS. None of those appear to be the plain BTstack I need to play with a wiimote so where could I get that one? Which repo did you guys get yours from?

    I was fairly certain that most emulators that needed BTstack caused it to install as a prerequisite. Launch Cydia and go to the "Manage" tab at the bottom, and then check the "Packages" section. See if BTstack is already listed there. If not try searching for BTstack. it's in the BigBoss Repo, so I'm not sure why you shouldn't be able to find it.

    As for what it is. Well, BTstack is an alternative Bluetooth Stack. Basically it adds support for more Bluetooth peripherals than the standard stack that comes installed as part of iOS.

    Here's a link to their Google Code page if you want to read more about it: http://code.google.com/p/btstack/

    I don't suppose anyone knows a trick on getting the universal Onlive controller to work with the iphone?
    I'm waiting for the playable app to release which is taking forever to be released or announced its been rejected. in the meantime thought I could maybe get it to work with ios apps but I can't get the phone to find the bluetooth.

    As its meant to be used for official apps, it would use the stock Bluetooth. It would also require the apps to be programmed for it. Same for Cydia emulators. The debs will need to program support for it. I think I'll email Robert of the .emu ones and see if he has any plans to add it or if it's even possible. I got the controller as a gift but also have an icontrolpad too.
