Everything is alright yesterday.

Today I found that the unknown source in Quest is disappear and I cannot connect my Quest via ADB.

Also the developer mode setting is not found in Oculus App.

What happened?

Hi Robbie, 

 

Try adding a credit card number to your developer account and you should get developer mode back again right away - just close and re-open it.

To clarify - even though it says 'verified' with just a phone number OR a credit card, you actually need to add both now for developer mode to work again. 

I got mine working by adding credit/debt card info in addition to phone verification, however when I was struggling with it I attempted to use ODH, only to find it it only works via Bluetooth, and I don't have a computer with Bluetooth capabilities. As in IT Manager, I hardwire everything, so it doesn't make since for me to buy wifi/bluetooth modules for all of my PCs. Surely I'm not the only one.

I got it working last week, thanks though.

So I FINALLY got it to work!!  I put the CC information in my Iphone from the quest device developer screen - even though it was in my PC- and then all of a sudden the developer option appeared!

Update 11/8The fix pushed to the latest App Update does not seem to have fixed the issue for all developers. At this time we are re-opening the issue and will update this forum thread with any relevant details: https://forums.oculusvr.com/t5/General-Development/Developer-Mode-Issues-Update/td-p/892227 

 

In the meantime, many of our awesome developers have shared that verifying using a Credit Card allowed the Developer Mode option to appear.

So, I've checked it again just now, did nothing different myself, and I've got it to  work. My guess is that the Oculus App (Android) was updated.
