Suddenly after having this thing for two months, it won't connect to the internet and the date suddenly reads May 8th, 2037. It's a Friday, apparently.
Wifi is fine with every other device. I've done everything short of a factory reset. Tried using SideQuest based on some other comments but can't figure out how to change the date. Any suggestions?
We're happy to help getting your Quest 2 reconnected to Wi-Fi so that the date and time will be correct and you'll be able to use your device normally again. As it stands, if you've already tried rebooting your router and rebooting your Quest 2, the next step would be to factory reset your headset. Since your Quest 2 is unable to connect to Wi-Fi right now, you'll need to perform the reset from the headset itself. Here's the instructions:
Turn off your headset.
Hold the power and volume (-) button on your headset down simultaneously until the boot screen loads on your headset.
Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Factory Reset and press the power button.
Use the volume buttons on your headset to highlight Yes and press the power button.
Performing a factory reset is irreversible and will remove all account information, downloaded games, and content from the headset.
Performing a factory reset won't remove content you've purchased or downloaded from your account.
OK I solved this using the ADB command option in Sidequest and running the command as written here:
This opens the android settings page in the headset which oculus has tried to prevent you from accessing, and from there you select date and time, disable network time, enter the correct date and time, and you can reenable the network time after that if you like. Then forget your existing wifi connection and reconnect.
This fixed it for me.
Thank you. You solution works and easy to reuse incase this problem happen again.
My headset suddenly display wrong date year 2036 thus causing unable to connect to wifi "limited connection". So using ur suggested apps, I disable the "Use network-provided time" and enter the date manually.
