Can't install Beat Sabre Update

An update for Beat Sabre appeared on my Quest last night, but when I attempted to install it, it said the installation failed.

I suspect that this is because I have custom songs installed. Fair enough.

So I thought I'd uninstall Beat Saber and install it again to get back to 'stock', but I can't uninstall it either. Selecting the uninstall option appears to do nothing.

How can I uninstall Beat Sabre and get back to a stock install so I can update it?

    Seems like I can use SideQuest to uninstall Beat Saber and re-download. Will try that this evening.

    Let me know if this works, I still am unable to download any of my apps after this update.  For me, I don't have any custom songs, only the addition of the Monstercat songs and the Beat Saber update finished way faster than it should have but it let me start up the app and some of the Monstercat songs wouldn't load.  So I uninstalled it and tried reinstalling, but all of my uninstalled apps are now stuck in an endless queue and will not download.

    That makes me nervous for uninstalling for be honest! But then I guess you could always factory reset and start again? Not sure what you'd lose by doing that other than having to download the apps again.

    I'll try SideQuest and report back. Fingers crossed!

    OK, SideQuest worked a treat! Not difficult to install. Just follow the instructions to get setup and then uninstall Beat Saber. Then, from the Quest, select to install Beat Saber again. Everything is now back to normal :)

    Honestly speaking,when someone answers to another saying google is your friend as you did i’d ban him for ever from the forum saying:
    next time dont open a help thread and use google for your problem!!!

    This is exactly what I did with the 1.0.1 update but I was able to redownload. For the 1.0.2 update it said it failed to download but it seemed to have worked because I was able to cast. I'm currently trying to download Shadow Point but it's stuck in the download queue on the current build 256550.6170.0.

    Did you keep your custom songs when reinstalling or did you have to side load them all on again? My PC isn’t fully built yet so I used my friend’s to get the custom songs on. Meaning that to get the songs back it would be a lot of effort

    I've now completely removed my custom songs as I didn't like having to use external tools to uninstall in order to update. So for now, I am running standard Beat Saber again.

    For anyone else having problems with the Quest failing to update or uninstall an application such as Beat Sabre, you need to install SideQuest to your PC. Then with a suitable cable to connect your Quest to the PC,  follow the setup instructions at the bottom left of the SideQuest window.
    Once up and running, you can click the 3 lines to left of the spanner at top right of window. This will show your currently installed applications.
    Now find the corresponding app (such as com.beatgames,beatsabre) and delete it.
    Back in the Quest, it will show your App or Game has disappeared and you can now re download a fresh copy from the store.
    You can then run the Beast Sabre from the SideQuest app, but to update to latest version, click on Beast Sabre icon at top left  then click on the "Backups" button at the top row, to open a new window saying APK Backups. Click "Redownload Patcher" and this will install the latest version.

    Not sure I understand what you are asking. I'm not sure if installing updates affects casting or not though.

    The new update introduced the possibility to cast beat saber.
    I have beat saber in the updating section but I can cast it
    so how is it possible ?

    Ah OK, understood. I actually tried casting Beat Saber directly to Facebook a couple of evenings ago and it worked, but with no sound. I'm guessing it's not legal to broadcast the sound because of copyright (I was playing the new Imagine Dragons tracks at the time).

    Fair enough. I pretty much got quest for beat saber so having the custom songs is a massive thing for me. I’m probably just gonna hold on until I get my PC built or until I visit my friend again for installing updates. The game still runs perfectly fine with the songs I have so I think I can be patient. Thanks for the help!
