Why not use the phone ? Can’t for the life of me remember how I resolved it, it may have just been a fluke. are you making it an app on your homescreen? https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Virtual-Gamepad#use-it-as-a-smartphone-application-chrome-for-android (Note that you have to configure it in the browser first before you make the app or else emulationstation wont configure properly) Its possible the device ID is dynamic and changes anytime the network changes (i.e. on a reboot) especially likely if run from a browser rather than a homescreen app.
