Hello, my headset updated automatically to v38, and as I would guess many people are, I am kind of disappointed about the logo change on startup. Other than that, the only difference that I’ve noticed is that some things in the UI are more spaced out and it looks much cleaner in my opinion.

Device bricked with v38 PTC. The firmware uploads (firmware icon and green bar completes) but when it reboots the logo just keeps flashing. If I power on again, the green bar loads again and it goes back to the flashing logo. Have tried multiple reboots,  hard reboots, factory resets, wifi router reboot, powering down from Android menu, etc. Looks like its bricked my device!  Any suggestions welcome. Thanks. John.

It's the old logo still, so looks like the firmware update never makes it.

Does this update provide fix for blurry vision due to incorrect CA compensation which is introduced with V37?

Got the firmware today. Also after the firmware update i got an update for the "SocialPlattform" app.
Since then "SocialPlattform" is crashing everytime if i try to open a chat trough the Messenger icon.

anyone else?

I have it finished too, and so far like you the only change I noticed is the logo... out side of that and having to re select my environment, I haven't noticed any difference from v37, mine is still blurry, I have tried all the visual settings for the EyePiece as for 1,2, and 3 but 2 is still the best of the 3 and still blurry. I feel dissapointed as well, as I haven't gotten anything new or different at all other than a logo change.

Any idea if oculus link discharge will ever be resolved? The headset used to charge during link but now it always discharges, no matter what adapters and powered hubs I use.

Maybe sharing what has changed will increase the chance of getting useful feedback. Otherwise I might assume a given bug is an old bug, or that a new feature is a bug etc.

I'm now kinda glad I opted out of the Quest Beta a few weeks ago.  Feedback did not seem to make much difference with beta v37 anyway and there is no way to roll back until the next public release.  Very silly imho, lol!
