Hey guys,
Im having this annoying problem that after pressing home button (when in full screen app) it just display black screen and I have to unplug phone everytime.

    Okay this seems to becoming a common problem, I have the same issue. When i am at the end of a game or a movie or whatever, as soon as I press the home button on the VR controller the screen goes black and I can do nothing else. I can still here the software I was using running but the screen is black and I cant do anything no matter what I press. Cant get back to menus or anything. I have to disconnect the phone and plug it back in which is very annoying. Is this because of an update because it was working fine when I first started using this. I have only had it less than a month... Please Help...
