Hold down the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4
 
  Press and hold the SHARE and PS buttons on your DualShock 4 until the light bar starts to flash white.  Once it starts flashing white, the controller is searching and connecting to the CronusMAX PLUS.

Ready to Use
 
  
After a couple of seconds the display on the CronusMAX LED will go from the spinning Standby Animation to 0 (or a number if slot recall is enabled and a script was previously loaded) - indicating that the controllers are authorized and you're ready to play. At this point you can use your controller through the CronusMAX PLUS and also load any scripts or GamePacks. It's that simple!
 
BLUETOOTH LAG?
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices use the same radio frequencies to communicate, they often interfere with one another and are prone to interference from other devices operating on the same frequencies. If you are experiencing lag with your wireless controller, even though you have tried different Speed Up Settings in the Device Options panel, there is a good chance you have a WiFi Router that is causing interference. We have found that routers such as Apple's Airport Express have this problem and you should make sure that the router is not in close proximity to your CronusMAX/Bluetooth Adapter. You should also try changing the WiFi Router Channel to optimize your wireless signal. Click Here for more information on how to do that.

We also recommend that you Click Here to check out an article that looks at the effects of such interference, what causes it and how to reduce it in a home or office environment.

OPTIONAL: Disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching
 
If you do not intend to use your DualShock 4 controller without the CronusMAX PLUS in the future, you can now disable DualShock 4 Bluetooth searching to speed up subsequent DualShock 4 wireless syncing.
 
This would also mean that next time, you can skip steps 1 and 2 and instead of holding the SHARE and PS buttons in step 5, you would simply press the PS button
