    I think you can use oculus home with DK2 but you will have a message saying that it is unsupported. And touch exclusive titles will not work. Otherwise, yes the runtime 8.0 is the latest that came out for the DK2.
    Specs: Delidded i7-8086k @ 5.0 GHz all cores, NZXT X52 cooler, 32GB G.Skill 3200MHz, ASRock Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac, Asus GTX 1080 Strix, Corsair SF600 platinum, Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe 1TB, Samgung 850 EVO 500GB + 840 EVO 500GB in raid0, Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB, Louqe Ghost S1, Asus PB287Q 3840x2160 @ 60Hz, Samsung SyncMaster 226BW 1680x1050 @ 60Hz. Oculus Rift CV1.

    0.8 is also the last version that didn't auto update itself. All of the 1.x series will update whether you want them to or not. So if 1.12 comes out and it doesn't support DK2 at all, there's no way to install 1.11 instead and stay there.
    However the majority of new software is 1.x only. With 0.8 you'll only be running old stuff since before the CV1 came out.

    Hehe i have a bunch of boot ssds for old stuff:
    -win8.1 with 0.5 for dk2
    -win10 with 0.8 for same
    -win10 with latest (1.12) for cv (and occasionally testing if working with dk2).

    So yeah, the latest runtime DOES work with dk2.

    Just for info, tried and could NOT block home autoupdate with firewall restrictions (oculus added itself to exceptions automatically after a restart).
    If you want to keep old runtime, should add to hosts file.

    no one will help you being dk2 is not supported but I can tell you my dk2 works fine. try cleaning your contacts on your wires being it uses a audio jack for syncing maybe the problem lies with that cord

    I too would like to know which of the people whose DK2's work fine with latest runtime are still on Windows 8.1.
