Thank you very much for that update! It's very frustrating to have to keep checking for the update without any insight into when to expect it.

Is it possible it's based on S/N which would be related to purchase date? I got my Quest very recently and have not gotten the update yet.

Thanks for confirming. 
  • Got this message back from Oculus support: "Although we have announced that this feature will be launching soon, we do not have any information on this at this time." He seemed to be unaware that they announced the feature as available in …
  • Sounds like a good sideload candidate
  • Cool. FWIW, it also allows me to mirror my Mac's screen. Too bad it doesn't do VR. Thanks!
  • This game is fun and performs quite well even using my MacBook Pro under Boot Camp with its builtin gpu.
  • I stand corrected.  :#

Mine is still there too in developer mode. Very confusing but glad to still have the app. 
  • Oh no! Very useful app with lots of potential. Wonder if Google make them do it as a restriction on streetview data? Hope not.
  • Same question :/

Did it happen to improve in the past couple of days after the update happened. Seems to have improved, or even been completely corrected for me. Coincidence?

Thanks for the useful info! However, this may be unnecessary since the problem may be resolved in a different way. Yesterday, Oculus pushed a software update and the problem with the Up direction on the controller seems to have gone…
  • Someone mentioned that an update was pushed this morning. I just tried Ultrawings and Esper 2 and the up direction in both now seems to work fine. Coincidence? How about you guys?
  • I don't know if it is a coincidence, but a problem I had been having with the controller up direction not working consistency seems much better. I was not able to get it to fail in 2 apps that pretty consistently had problems after a short while usi…

No problem, SpaceDave. I must be even older :) since I have done this often, although probably not as often as sending in the device first. This thread has been very frustrating for me since I really am just trying to help novices t…

Thanks for the sensible reply! Since data is so often stored or backed up online (eg iPhones), a user may assume that is the case for the headset and perform the reset without realizing that is not the case here. Hopefully Oculus is…
  • No, as an experienced techie, I did not follow their direction. But, you’re right, i’m just trying to warn people who may be inclined to follow their step by step instructions without realizing the consequences. 
  • Sorry. Technically, there is truth in what you said assuming your data is stored on the original disk that you are returning to factory condition. And, as far as I know, there is no backup mechanism available on the Go yet.  But this thread is not …

Absolutely not! Data is stored on the HD and in the event you have to also erase the HD you can back it up first and then restore it. No Apple rep would ever advise a customer to erase all of his data without backing it up first. 
  • If people don't know the difference between a few TV settings and weeks or months of data in a computing platform or game system, then never mind. I won't worry about trying to warn them any more. They can just follow the techs instructions and star…
  • Oh, and I don't think I need to sustain bodily injury before I call out a company for bad service. I seldom do this but really feel for the reasons I said that this is one of those cases. Granted I only have progress on 10 games or so right now but,…

Respectfully, my experience is different on both counts. I don’t know of any computing device that loses so much data with a factory reset. Settings yes, but data is stored in a nonvolatile location or online. At a minimum, there is…
  • So, getting back to the original issue with the up direction not registering, I'm going to start a new thread with a more specific title to see how many users are affected by this and if anyone has had their controller replaced.
  • Sorry you're also having controller problems, JerMoore. Sounds more severe than the other problems (up direction) being discussed here. When you did the factory reset in the phone app settings, did you lose all of your games progress and other conte…

Yes, but without sending me a new one in advance. Since they seem to have an unsolved design problem, this is also not acceptable. I would lose all use of the device for 2 weeks and it would probably have the same problem. He is ran…

What kind of computer (or any other device for that matter) do you use that irretrievably wipes out your data when you reset it with no way of backing up and restoring? And what kind of tech support tells you to do that as an experi…
  • As I understand it, it would erase all content, including progress on games. Apps would still be marked as purchased and would have to be redownloaded. Another minor point that the support person said was that recent purchases would no longer qualif…

Playing Esper 2, it seems to work for a short time after recentering the controller but then fails again. I've tried using the tip of my thumb but that does little to help. Oddly, after getting it working a little, it seems to fail …
  • Now Oculus support is asking me to send them the possibly defective controller before they will send me a replacement! This would cause me to lose all use of the headset for about 2 weeks. If they insist on this, I'll probably just wait a little lon…
