Thought I'd never have to do this but I might have to jailbreak, I'm not really that excited about jail breaking, by the way can any thing bad happen?

This is great news, can't wait to be able to potentially use blutrol with the ps3 controller! And with GTA Vice City so close...

I thought exactly the same before jailbreaking... But basically, as long as you only install very well known applications or tweaks, nothing bad can happen to your device. I was even confident to JB my new ipad as soon as it was available. Screw the warranty, it's worth it.

How big is the file that you download off the Internet and does your iPhone/iPod lag?

The only downside to Jailbreaking is that Santa will know you haven't been a good boy and might not bring you that Minecraft Lego set for Christmas

Here is a video on how it works.

Does the IOS Settings > Bluetooth shows the pairing with the PS3 controller?

If yes, can you also show the video with it?
