If you have been following my articles, you might have bumped into my previous HOW-TO post about IPEGA gamepad controller setup from my another blog. Some were able to successfully setup their IPEGA gamepad controller by installing the official “IPEGA Game Center_ENG.apk“. While some of those whom tried it failed. I am not sure what and why. But there’s always this possibility that the mobile device they are pairing with the IPEGA gamepad controller isn’t compatible at all. However, my game enthusiast friend once again found a way. You can now pair with your mobile device with IPEGA gamepad controller without installing any apps. And that’s what we will be showing you for today.

Are you one of those young at heart and loves to play online or offline games? Like those new Nintendo 3DS XL and Wii U games. If you are then I am sure you will enjoy more playing games on your mobile with IPEGA gamepad controller. Although there are other controllers like the Moga Pro Power gamepad controller I reviewed last year which I think is also cool and neat to use. In any case, there’s only one main key why me and others use a gamepad controller. And that is to have better control of the game. Moreover, having a gamepad controller setup makes it more convenient and less intrusive. As opposed to where if you play directly using the screen display controllers. The feel isn’t just there. If you know what I mean. 🙂

So much for introduction and without further adieu, I will be letting you now check the steps below and watch the video so that you can have fun with your IPEGA game controller.

How to setup IPEGA gamepad controller without any apps

  1. First (and also important), you have to DELETE the installed IPEGA Game Center app from your device OR any 3rd-party gamepad controller app from your mobile to avoid any conflicts.
  2. Then on your IPEGA gamepad controller (PG-9025), press and hold X and HOME button simultaneously. Wait until the RED LED is blinking.
  3. Once the red LED is blinking, you can now pair it with your device.

That’s it! You can now test it by opening any games from your app drawer. In our video below, we will be showing you the Android game app called Beach Buggy Blitz. And in this game, you will see that we’re able to use IPEGA gamepad controller.

You can try to pair first your mobile device with IPEGA using this non-app dependent setup. If your device can’t recognize your gamepad controller then you can try using the official app I’ve mentioned above. If everything fails, then check with your supplier. I am sure you don’t want to spend your precious money with a device you can’t use in the end.

Let us know if the steps above works on your IPEGA gamepad controller.

    I bought the ipega 9025 and the setup method explained here is actually in the device’s manual.
    Still, games like NOVA 3 doesn’t recognize it, hence why I think people resort to this game center software.
    I am trying to make it work in NOVA 3 game, but this game center doesn’t work in my phone, it doesn’t bind. I have tried a few software and a few methods, still to no avail. Have you ever done it?

    1. Clowread

      N.O.V.A 3 no longer support gamepad. 🙁 So you have to root your phone to do so and add 3rd party app in mapping your controller for that game.

  2. Yabby

    After connecting the bluetooth to device, what would be the next step.

  3. Arvi caores
