When I try to pair on the phone a "Location access is needed pops up. Tapping on the "Next" button does nothing except blink.
Honestly, screw Oculus at this point.
Headset wifi was dropping, so I decided after nothing else worked that I'd do a factory reset, and if that didn't work I'd put in a support ticket which would inevitably be ignored. Woe be the fool that tries to fix something on their own though, because of course to get the headset to a workable state, you have to have the app.
So, I open the practically unused app thinking it'll be easy, it worked before after all, with the same phone and all that. But oh no, when I click the button, obviously because of some crap update they've done, it doesn't bloody work.
At this point I genuinely hope Oculus fail, because between the fact that there's been NO official word on this thread regarding this issue, nor has it been fixed in like 9 months, means obviously they just don't give much of a crap.
I've put in a support ticket, but from what I've seen, I highly doubt anything useful will come of it, probably just copy-pasted useless support information that goes nowhere, does nothing, and leaves me throwing this £399 pile of plastic out the window and deleting anything that Facebook has its grubby paws on.
The fact that you have to pair it with a phone is just silly and feels like it's facebook just trying to find more avenues to spy on consumers.
