Have uploaded the files you need now. https://www.dropbox.com/s/51qwrvz85mful ... .26%2B.tar

Download and un compress. Copy the kernel.img file into your /boot folder and overwrite the existing file. Then copy the 3.10.26+ folder to the /lib/modules directory on the pi.

Edit the /boot/cmdline.txt file and add usbhid.quirks=0x1292:0x4154:0x040 to the end of the line of text. Save the file and reboot your pi.

Let me know if it all works for you.

Matt.

Hi... the dropbox file is gone. Could you upload it again? Thanks!

I think that one might be a bit old.

Check out the following post

That kernel should work for you.

I have a snes adapter. The second pad doesnt work. The first one does. I changed the boot/cmdline.txt as Matt said, with the according id of the snes with no results. Anyone could help? Thanks...

Edit: Never mind. I managed a workaround. Since the second pad is recognized as a third and fourth axis (left&right, up&down) and button from 8th to 15th, I changed the player 2 buttons and axis of the emulation station config file to match those values and it worked :lol:

Honestly, I didn't bother trying to get my two joysticks showing up as js0 and js1. Just set up the emulators to make it look like it was two. I didn't see a point in spending more time on it. It all works.

Yeah... that's what I did... didn't know I could do that.
Thanks.

I've also posted the custom kernel that I compiled with the changes if you want to save yourself some time.

Hi mate! I am having problems installing your kernel that I found on internet. It says:

Unpacking raspberrypi-bootloader (1.20160322-1) over (1.20160322-1) ...
Replaced by files in installed package raspberrypi-kernel (1.20160523-1) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of raspberrypi-bootloader:
raspberrypi-kernel (1.20160523-1) breaks raspberrypi-bootloader (<< 1.20160324-1) and is installed.
Version of raspberrypi-bootloader to be configured is 1.20160322-1.

dpkg: error processing package raspberrypi-bootloader (--install):
dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:
raspberrypi-bootloader
Error completing: dpkg

Can you help me please? Many thanks

it looks from the log that you downloaded the latest one listed there (from March) unfortunately I haven't been keeping up to date because I don't have a Pi 3 and I don't update mine anymore because I didn't really need to.

If you need to I can attempt to compile a new version of the kernel tonight and post it.

Here is a link to a new custom kernel. Note that I didn't get a chance to test it. I might tonight, but figured I'd post it anyway.

@feedercahin

That one is pretty old. I created another in April for someone else, but they never informed me if it worked or not.

Unfortunately I moved on from using this USB adapter on my main Retropie.

But here's the link for the latest one I created

https://www.dropbox.com/s/t3lq0p32qw4l1 ... ar.gz?dl=0

Let me know if there are still issues with it and I can create a new one in the next couple days.

Still doesn't work for me.
Here is the error message:

dpkg: error processing archive raspberrypi-bootloader_1.20170422-1_armhf.deb (--install):

But thanks though for the new files.

Looks like it should be upgrading successfully. All I can think of asking right now is if you called the install with sudo?

Otherwise, I can take a closer look later today.

Which Pi are you using?

Yes I called "sudo ./install.sh". I needed to do "chmod +x install.sh" though.
I'm using the raspberry pi 3 model B with the latest retropie v4.2.

Ieven tried to copy it manually, but then it says "cp: failed to preserve ownership" with the command "cp -Rf -a bootloader/boot/. /boot"

I got every package installed now. I added a --force-overwrite to every .deb install. But somehow the os/emulationstation still doesn't recognize two buttons as before from my controller adapter; the down and right button.

OK, finally got a chance to try and install this on my Pi2. Adding --force-overwrite is an issue with the tool I used to help me compile the kernel. So I'd have to look into that a bit more. As for the controller not working. All I can think of is that I must have screwed up the code change and it actually didn't get compiled in.

Right now I have limited time to work on this, but I'll see what I can do within the next few days.

Ok, take your time.
But do you know how to configure joydev? I read on https://github.com/msteinbeck/hid-retrobit/blob/master/DETAILS.md in the driver section, that you can set different values for your usb device via joydev but it's not explained how and I didn't find anything on google either.

I've tried to set those USB quirks while trying to fix this with not too much luck. They were supposedly supposed to be set in cmdline.txt

But maybe there are other ways to set it. That would be far easier than compiling a new kernel all the time.
