Android 10 update ... My software no longer works, it boots but there is no navigation

jon.king.wajon.king.wa Posts: 1
My phone updated android to 10 on a Note 9+, since then my Gear VR boot but leaves me in a room but it has no navigation, I can do a full 360 on my office chair and I do not get any options screen, navigation, etc. just the room in 3D. My controller also fails to get any navigation up. 

Does anyone else have the same issue, I contacted Samsung and I was told it was not their issue to fix

    I have the exact same issue on S9+.  I had to uninstall everything Gear VR related and then reinstall the Oculus Gear VR app just to get it back to the room.  I can do nothing more than view the room though.

    Same issue with Samsung S9 after android 10 update, went through Occulus customer service which was a waste of time, glad to see they're taking this seriously.... guess my gear headset is just a useless piece of plastic now

    I did a full factory reset on my S9+.  I did not restore from backup.  Everything works now with the Gear VR and Oculus app.  I don't know if doing a factory reset and restoring your data from backup would also work.  I just decided to swing the big hammer.
