This is a very recent problem concerning my quest 2.
It starts up normally, but once the 3 dots are gone i'm engulved in black, only being able to see my guardian. Once i physically get out of it, it switches to passthrough.
I have updated the Quest software and installed it moments before this issue. I do not know what version unfortunately.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Reset has me working again.
Thankfully, most of my games are through Steam so I didn't lose much, but yes, you do lose Oculus game progress.
The first time I launched it after the reset it asked if I wanted to re-download my previous apps so that was nice. But for anyone who plays a lot of Oculus games a factory reset might lose you a lot of progress.
