I think I figured it out myself… I’m not sure if this is the correct way, but it is the only way I could get it to connect and reconnect after turning off the controller. Also, if a PS3 controller was already paired this method did not work (not sure why)… this only works on a fresh RP image and was tested on v3.0 B4:

# SSH or go the command line:

# Install/Launch PiAssist

$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Death259/PiAssist/master/PiAssist.sh
$ chmod +x PiAssist.sh
$ sudo ./PiAssist.sh

# Pair Controller via Bluetooth menu, very simple

# Edit rc.local

$ sudo nano /etc/rc.local

# Paste the following after “this file does nothing…”

hciconfig device up
hciconfig set name raspberrypi-0
hciconfig set class 0x420100
hciconfig enable iscan
hciconfig enable pscan

# Change class to value from /var/lib/bluetooth/xxx/config
# This whole bit allows reconnection later without having to re-pair

# Save/Exit
CTRL + X, Y, Return

# Reboot
$ sudo reboot
