I've used my gear vr and samsung s8 for 6 months and everything was working fine.
2 weeks ago it stop to work and when I connect the s8 to the gear vr the vr app is not triggered.
My first attempt was to connect another phone to the gear vr awhen connected it triggered the app installation, so the gear vr seems to work properly.
I've removed all the gear vr apps from my phone but again it does not work.
I've reset my samsung s8 to factory reset and when gear vr is connected nothing happens again.
"Gear VR service" app is the only one installed in my phone and it is installed by default and I cannot uninstall.
