    I’ve found a HC05 serial bluetooth so I planned to use it to add bluetooth to my Raspberry Pi 2 – Retropie 3.0 console instead of using an USB dongle to connect bluetooth controllers (NES30pro and PS3).
    I’ve managed to reconfigure the bluetooth module to work at the same baud rate as the raspberry, and now I can connect my phone to the raspberry with bluetooth terminal apps.

    But Retropie doesn’t detect the HC05 module. Is there an easy way to make it use the serial bluetooth module instead of USB?
