Hey guys,

everytime when i start the oculus app on my S7 Edge and try to open an app (samsung internet) the message "Gear VR Service has stopped" (or like that, im from germany) appears. And when i try to connect my Phone to the Gear VR, nothing happen! after that i cant open any apps like youtube, facebook etc. and after 1 minute it reboots!!! what can i do?!

The phone was rooted, today i unroot it. 1 month ago it worked without a problem!

    Rooting and custom ROMs can mess with VR, and are not recommended things to do. However, I'm not sure if that is your issue or not. I would try reinstalling all Oculus/GearVR apps. See this article.
