I updated a few apps in my library, then as soon as I rebooted, it displayed the downloading/updating image indicating the Quest itself was updating. That was yesterday.


Genius!  
Ive had my Quest plugged in & on standby several times over the last few days, waiting for it to update to 8.0 but without success.
I have now made sure all the installed apps are up to date & tried again...
yep.. it worked! My Quest has updated to 8.0 ?

My Quest was just updated to version 8 but I honestly couldn't find where 'night mode' option is? I already looked everywhere under settings.


I don't see it either.

very strange , i'm on firmware 7.00 version.

I saw the option for night light , activated it , tested it , and now that i want to deactivate this option,

impossible to find again , in the different options... option disappeared but the Night mode is still there...

This was not just into firmware 8.0 version ?

The night mode finally showed up a few days after my Quest was updated to version 8!

I had a bunch of wifi problems with v.8.0 so I did a factory reset and my wifi issues seem to have disappeared.
Sadly all my game saves are gone 😕

My Quest updated to 8.0 yesterday. After the update my wifi-connection crashes every few minutes. I must turn wifi off and on again on the quest to reenable the connection. Until the new firmware I had absolutly no problems with the connection...

Today I also made a factory reset, but it doesnt help


Yup. I just came here looking for this as well. System 8.0 has ruined my WiFi. I am CONSTANTLY disconnecting from WiFi. Never had this issue before the update. I am losing my mind with this. There is obviously some bug here.

These WiFi disconnects are strange. On my own router I don't have these disconnects. On the older one of my parents I got these constantly. But I can't figure out, what the real reason is. 
Other thing is that me and other people on my Facebook group are noticing slight stutterings in several apps since the latest firmware. I hope you can fix that soon.

Can we get some indication Oculus is working on the stuttering and instability in 8.0? It's really put me off using my Quest, I haven't been on for a couple of weeks. It was great when it came out, I was amazed by how it 'just worked'... now it's glitchy and unreliable.

There's a new update coming next week, so hopefully that fix will be in it and the fix for throwing you back into the guardian screen just because the room lighting changed slightly.
