    Sorry, but is there a 256550.6170.5 firmware released?  There is a post under support about it,  but the Quest forum makes no mention of it.

    Yep, probably a hotfix for the queuing download issue.

    Did anyone noticed very apparent screen ghosting after the new update? I thought the display was perfectly sharp till now - It seems like I can see now last frame with ~25% opacity? Bad Asynchronous Wrap? Could anyone confirm or disprove?

    Wonderful. Is there any way to subscribe to all (Quest) announcements or release notes?

    I got the update today but now the right speaker makes some crackeling noises. It never did before. Does anyone have any ideas or experience the same issues?

    Thanks

     This is a big with all quests. Restart your device will fix it for a while. Oculus is aware of this and will be fixing it with a update.

    My issue with the new update is it seemed to affect tracking mainly on the left side...

    I just experienced this today...after the update. Trying to play Beat Saber, and my left controller's stuck rotating in space. I don't think it's the lighting in my place either, as I never had the issue before, and I stand with the light to my right side anyway.

    Had to reboot the quest twice, because of this. One time it was the right controller, and a few minutes later the left. Since then they never stuck again. Very strange.

    My version says 256550.6170.5. Is that the same update? The last number is different from above. Also, I do not have the option to turn on Auto Update under Advanced Settings.

    I played again last night and it was fine. Not sure why(?).

    Anyone else getting intermittent pops and clicks in the audio since the latest update?  Happens in all apps for me.

    EDIT:
    Oculus support confirmed on Reddit this is a known issue and will be addressed in a coming update.

    Also @BadDanME - I had the issue with my right controller in Beat Saber too. I just removed the battery for a few seconds and put it back in and the issue was resolved.
    It may have happened because the battery is now quite low (still the original shipped with my Quest) or because intense Sabering makes the battery move inside the compartment and create issues :/

    My quest is still on the old build. I also noticed too that when I turned it on today my wifi 5ghz connection didn't work on the quest, I had to use 2.4ghz connection.

    Edit: My quest is now updated to the latest version. I had to turn back on the auto turn off display and I connected my quest to my powerbank while showing green led and sleep. Not yet experienced issues.

    Edit 2: Well I have a power issue now I'm not sure if its because my quest updated to latest build or if its due to turning on developer mode. Anyone else notice their powerbank turns off when quest is at 100%? my powerbank never did that and when I turn off the quest by long pressing power button then selecting shut down, my anker powerbank leds come back on. Think I might have to turn off developer mode and see if that was the issue.

    I also had wifi issues and had to restart the device to get it working again.

    I might also have a battery drain problem too no way it lasts 2.5 hrs. More like 1.5 hrs. I think it's due to Bluetooth being on. I do have a 3a qc3 power bank.

    I get the warning pop up now and then, whether surfing or actually playing games. I think I had same issues in the Go though while surfing...some streams would freeze for a moment, then kick back in. Never had a warning in the Go though, so not certain it's the same. I did come across something on youtube showing an app for the phone, telling you what wifi channels are being used in your area, suggesting the channel being used might be used by numerous others, making that channel congested. By picking a relatively unused channel, or the least used channel for your area, it should increase your speed. Maybe that also fixes dropouts(?). My router's locked me out though...I did a factory reset from the pinhole, but all that did was prompt me to setup a password for the wifi connection. It still won't accept the factory password. :P Guess I'll have to spend time with with them in a support chat. :(

    I have an Ankar 20100 Power Bank...5v 2.4a. Works fine for the Go, but with the Quest, I've noticed sometimes the headset charges faster than it drains, and other times it seems as if it's not even drawing from the power bank. The light is white, and the power bank's lights aren't even on. I chalked it up to connecting the battery first, then powering up. I'm still ordering an Ankar 10000 PD though. 5v 3a...like the Quest's charging adapter.

    Well, got into my modem...seems password was 'password'...lol. First thing I noticed though...both 2.4 and 5 Ghz were active, but they both had the same SSID name. I read somewhere else that someone had issues when the names were the same. I'll do some testing tonight.

    My Rift CV1 updated today, June 11, and while playing DCS (digital combat simulation), when I turned my head to the left entire visual moved with me.  When I looked right it works as normal.  Tried various things, reboot oculus etc.  Recent update has pooched my Rift and is unplayable.  I trust a fix is coming soon!

    After playing with the wifi, 2.4GHz works flawlessly, but 5GHz won't authenticate my password in the Quest, and it doesn't even show up in my phone's wifi list. Googling, I came across a thread on my internet provider's forums, where people said their 5GHz connection would just disappear from the list after a while. The company rep replied saying wifi speakers and security cams can cause the signal to drop off...though they didn't explain why. I guess 5GHz is a nogo for me.

    Try with a shorter password length ;-)

    Hi guys.
    No updates for my oculus, I'm at version 266550.5350.0.
    Also someone else is missing the "Automatic update in the oculus app?" :'(

    @Squaremartian I'm having the same problem. It's not showing any new build update. And there's no auto update option in settings - advanced

    Same as you VRBabe14 this is annoying. Is there a work around so we can update our headsets?

    Fixed after contacting support. The firmware update takes place after about 5 hours the oculus search turned on but in standby, it should not be used. It updates itself. :D
