Just bought a Samsung Gear (323 model) and it worked great right away for a few hours then started getting an error "unable to use gear vr". 
Uninstalling/installing again seems to work for a day or so and then I get the same thing again it seems after an update.

Is there a fix for this, uninstalling/installing is tedious.  I can't seem to find anything better than that searching the interwebs.

    Hopefully this helps someone else, after several hours of screwing around with this figured out the connector on the headset appears to come slightly loose each time the phone is docked/undocked.  Snapping it back in place each time before hasn't failed since.
