Cannot move/no headtrack issues in developer mode

Hello guys,

So I just tried developer mode to run Oculus Gear VR apps without using the headset. But when I run that app (ex: Oculus 360 Photos), the image doesn't make any move when I move my head (like it doesn't have headtracking). But the app still running and works fine. Any solutions? I'm using Samsung Galaxy S7. Your help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

    Oculus software makes use of Gear VR IMUs. Since Gear VR is not connected, software can't get tracking data and thus you don't get any head tracking!!!!

    No solution - put your phone back into Gear VR
