I have the original Gear VR Innovator Edition, which used to work wonderfully with my Note 4 (Italian, stock ROM). Since yesterday's update, I can no longer even enter VR because the system insists on updating a few Oculus-related applications, and it always gets stuck on "Oculus App Runtime" (com.oculus.vrshell). The download of Oculus App Runtime progresses to 100%, and immediately after that, the button "Update now" (which during download changes into the busy circle animation) reverts to being clickable. If I click it again, com.oculus.vrshell gets downloaded to 100% completion again and the cycle just repeats.
I can find no way to get past this silent fail. I have already tried uninstalling all the Oculus apps, rebooting the phone and the usual remedies. Several of the required updates succeed every time, but then I am always left with "Oculus App Runtime", "Oculus Home" and "Oculus" in the update list. No error messages or anything.
On a more general note, it would be wonderful if we were given the freedom to install older versions of the Oculus apps, or at least the choice to refuse an update.
