dual mode

if the apk is compiled with
(name = "com.samsung.android.vr.application.mode", value = "dual")
on S7 in dev mode, the app starts fine and can interact with the user without a headset.
when S7 is inserted to GearVR, Oculus Home steals focus, but, app can fix it by FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT.

on S6 in non dev mode, the app starts fine and can interact with the user without a headset.
when S6 is inserted to GearVR, Oculus Home steals focus, demands Log In Required , and blocks dual mode app FLAG_ACTIVITY_REORDER_TO_FRONT.

how can a dual mode app stay actually visible when inserted to GearVR?
