Cydia Tweak: Controllers For All Updated To Add PS4 DualShock 4 Support
One of the most useful jailbreak tweaks to have reached the Cydia Store in recent months has received its first major update. Controllers for All, which allows jailbreakers to turn a PS3 DualShock 3 controller into an MFi (Made for iPhone) iOS 7 gamepad, is the package we’re talking about. Thanks to its most recent update, the jailbreak tweak has added support for Sony’s PS4 DualShock 4 controller, in a move which PlayStation 4 owners will surely appreciate.
Controllers for All is a significant jailbreak tweak for a couple of reasons. For one, it allows DualShock owners to enjoy an MFi iOS gamepad experience for just $1.99 (which is the cost of the package). Most iOS-compatible controllers available carry a price tag of between $79.99 and $99.99, and as such Controllers for All provides iDevice users with a far more affordable option.
For another, though, most of the iOS-compatible controllers we’ve seen don’t offer owners a decent enough gaming experience. Logitech’s PowerShell, for example, had its share of good points when we reviewed it, but overall the poor build quality of its buttons, combined with its lack of a joystick, meant it was a product we couldn’t recommend. With Controllers for All, users are able to connect a quality game controller to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and this makes the jailbreak tweak a must-have for owners of Sony’s PS3 DualShock 3 gamepad.
As of its most recent update, however, Controllers for All is getting better. Back when the package was first released, developer Ori Kadosh promised support for additional hardware, and now less than one week later the developer is delivering on this promise. The updated jailbreak tweak supports both the PS3 DualShock 3 controller and the PS4 DualShock 4 gamepad.
You can switch between controller types in the jailbreak tweak’s preferences pane, which appears in the built-in Settings app once Controllers for All has first been installed. Here, it’s also possible to enable or disable the jailbreak tweak outright, and to limit the iOS notifications Controllers for All will deliver to your handset.[caption id="attachment_510983" align="aligncenter" width="642"] Controllers for All.

Kadosh has suggested that support for even more controller models will be added in the future, and now that both PlayStation controllers are supported by Controllers for All we’re hoping the jailbreak tweak’s next update will focus on Microsoft’s Xbox gamepads. We’ll keep you posted with further information as we receive it.
In the meantime, Controllers for All can be downloaded in the Cydia Store for $1.99, and it’s a jailbreak tweak we highly recommend.
