Thanks for putting me on the right track for configuring my pandora controller on retropie.
Since search engines continue to find this thread on the subject, I just would like to add that the trick with the usbhid.quirks is dependant on the model of the Pandora box.
The general procedure of adding usbhid.quirks to /boot/cmdline.txt is the same as described in
BUT make sure you use
with VendorID, ProducID being the output from the command 'lsusb' for the corresponding controller!
