Yes. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only other option to fix this issue. Just make sure to turn on cloud save and sync your progress before resetting the Quest 2, otherwise you will lose all progress in your games.

After some research, I found that Pshemson found that CptCheez's solution for being stuck uninstalling an app also works for this problem. I tried it myself and it does work! This solution does require developer mode for Sidequest to be able to access the Quest 2's files.

Note: This works even though you didn't get Pavlov from Sidequest.

I sadly do not have a PC to connect my oculus to which is why I need another work around for this solution

I believe you can use Sidequest with an android device instead of a PC, or you can turn on the cloud save feature for your Quest 2 to save your games’ progress and then factory reset your PC. 

Do you mean factory reset my oculus?

Yes. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only other option to fix this issue. Just make sure to turn on cloud save and sync your progress before resetting the Quest 2, otherwise you will lose all progress in your games. 

This is not true. You just need to clear the app data for the com.oculus.ocms app. See solution here: (but currently requires a PC)

Borrow a computer from a friend, or borrow one at the library. It's can't be that hard to find a computer :P. The computer doesn't need to be "VR-ready". It just need to run Windows, Mac or Linux (so Chromebook is a no go):

It worked - thanks so much for sharing this!
