Raspberry Pi 3;
5V,3A power supply;
Retropie 4.4 (? Literally latest available to download there and fully updated through Retropie Setup as of 19.05.2019.)
Build from pre-made image "retropie-4.4-rpi2_rpi3.img".
USB Devices connected: Tp-Link TL-WN722N
Controller used: PS3 sixaxis
@psyke83 Is there a workaround or the only option is to wait for the fix?
A workaround is to manually downgrade the firmware packages to a stable version. For convenience, this script will downgrade and put a hold on the necessary packages: https://gist.github.com/psyke83/cb3ca50561480809c246f42727cb7cf2
Needs to be run via sudo; i.e.
sudo ./downgrade_firmware.sh downgrade
When it's safe to return to the latest firmware packages, this will unblock updates:
sudo ./downgrade_firmware.sh unblock

@psyke83 Thx for the fix, now ps4 pad works.
I have downgraded with the script, but still can't get my PS3 controller to register wirelessly with this sixaxis driver.

Thanks for bumping this, I was just looking for an answer to this. (DS3 user)
The script needs to be ran with sudo and after it is done (10+ min) it is necessary to reboot.
Yes I did that. I ran it as sudo, let it run, ad rebooted when done. No difference.
@MrJordaaany What's the output of
uname -a, if you run it from the terminal or from a SSH session ?
Please can someone (who is happy to test / comfortable with Linux) try the latest rpi-update kernel? Should include a backported fix which may resolve this issue.

I first unblocked the update.
sudo ./downgrade_firmware.sh unblock.
Then the update via setup script(3e136616) with the underlying OS and a reboot and the DS3 does not work. Is there a latest that wasn't 35 hours ago?
Note: rpi-update is a separate update mechanism that bypasses repository packages.
Additionally, the firmware release that (potentially) includes the fix is not tagged, so you will need to specify the git hash when invoking the command, like so:
sudo rpi-update e289f6a59ff24925aa29f134723659b8bcd9fa06
I prefer not to test this on my main card as I don't like how it bypasses system packaging, but if someone is anxious to test it, do go ahead and let us know if it solves the issue.

Is this the fix? Is there anyway to install it now?

@googanhiem I think you misunderstood a bit the situation. If you have a problem now, then use the downgrade script.
The upgrade pathavailable (which is different than the downgrade) involves updating the kernel from the Raspbian testing area, which is not recommended unless you're familiar with Linux/Raspbian. The fix (via upgrade) is not available through the normal OS/package updates in Raspbian, that's why you'd need to use
As I said - use the downgrade script for now if you have the issue of Bluetooth gamepads not working.
@mitu although it would be useful for someone to test this to know if it's resolved this issue.
@BuZz I only have a DS4, does it qualify ?
