Xbox One Controller not working with GIMX - FIX

Post by GoDlike »

We've encountered several problems even with very old models of Xbox One Controllers that were working before with GIMX. Current solution is to Revert your Xbox One Controller firmware through Xbox Assist app - https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbo ... 9951b7c109. This will downgrade software on controller to the protocol supported by GIMX and it will work again. In rare cases if you use very old firmware it may also not work, then you have to update it.

Supported models:
  • Xbox One Controller Model 1537 - without bluetooth and jack (Very old firmware may not work, in this case, update controller firmware.)
  • Xbox One Controller Model 1697 - without bluetooth, but with jack
  • Xbox One S Controller - Model 1708 - with bluetooth and jack (Only on old firmware, it may work after downgrade but it's not guaranteed),
Not supported models:
  • Xbox Series X/S Controller
Known Xbox One controller firmwares compatibility list (thanks keitark):

Code: Select all

model		FW		STATUS		FIX
1537		1.1.400.6	not working 	Update firmware
1537		2.3.2381.0	working
1697		2.3.2381.0	working
1697		2.3.2385.0	working
1708		3.1.1221.0	working
1708		OTHER		not working	Possible fix by downgrading firmware
1914 		ALL		not working
Constant changes of the Xbox controller protocol are headache for us, gimx developers. New version is being worked on.

No. It's being worked on but no ETA.

Are you sure that Xbox One Controller Model 1697 is without bluetooth? Because all 1697 controllers that I find are wireless. Or can the controller connect wirelessly to xbox but not have bluetooth? (I mean is it possible, that the controller is wireless, but doesn't have Bluetooth?)

Thank you in advance!
