    I'm having the same trouble. I managed to play the tutorial and then it said there was an update. I did the update, and now the app won't launch.

    Is there a way to install an older version?

    Looks like we'll all get free Oculus Store Credit again so it's not all bad lol

    I also had this for more than 12 hours, because of the Oculus update that broke the software - just do a "repair" as mentioned in this thread - worked for me.
