v23 ruined the Quest 1 for me - a list of my issues

Hey everyone!
Today the v23 was installed in my Oculus Quest 1 and since that my so far great experience was ruined.
So many issues that i could not even solve with factory reset or anything else - i really can't stand this.

1. Menus are superslow, lag / stutter constantly, sometimes takes very long to show up at all
2. Closing apps to get into the menus takes up to 10-20s which i never had before v23
3. Tracking is broken and Controller needed to be removed and paired again several times before they worked again

4. The most important issue for me after i saw in the update notes "improved clarity and pixel density"
The sweetspot of my vision is rendered clear and sharper compared to v20 ( 75-80% of the view ) BUT the peripheral vision top, life, right, bottom (20-25% of the view) looks like utter garbage. The resolution is so low that both different rendered areas have a sharp visible border.  I did not have this before the update and it breaks my immersion.

The Climb shows that issue so strong that i actually can't play it anymore.
Apollo 11 has the same issue and it turned a wonderful experience into something i don't want to see anymore.
SuperHot was third game i tested and it does not look so bad there - barely noticable.

Is there ANY way to go backto v20?
v23 ruined the Quest 1 for me. WHY?!

I have turned off auto update and am not going to manually update it. I guess that's why they doing rolling updates. All these people upset because they don't get V23 right away. I'm glad I didn't.

I don't think that auto-update applies to v23 but you are probably best to do this (and all app updates) manually anyway (for v23; settings/all/about Update button).  I updated my Q1 ~7 days ago.  The only thing I found I needed to do to fix guardian and tracking was to remove my controller batteries, power down, restart and replace batteries with fresh ones, then reset Guardian (including clearing its history.  Everything worked perfect after this and I kinda like the new universal menu.  Link with PC v23 never looked so good.

Main thing is to make sure you have a good wifi/internet connection and do not do anything while it is updating.  Once its finished it will ask you to do a restart in order to finish the update.  Really nothing to be afraid of imho.  Obviously, if you do have problems contact Oculus Support.

Try restarting and worst case do a factory reset. It's not that there is much setup to do and installing games as you need then only takes a minute or 2.

Why do you tell how to manually install an update?

Not sure exactly what you mean mate?  But if you go to settings/all/about the top screen will say looking for updates, and if any are available the update button on top left will show up.  You then just press it to start the update.

Mate, no one here is having issues to install an update or whatever. Your post does not fit in any way to my thread. o_O
