Situation with Rookies/Dev Mode/Telemetry Update: All You Need To Know

The Oculus Go and Gear VR titles are not available on the new FFA apps. With the Go now unlocked, it seems to me that we should be trying to preserve every Go/Gear VR title still around whether they are free or not. We have three Gos and a couple of Gear VR headsets in our home in addition to our Quests and still use them almost as often as our Quests.

Anyone tried the new FFA sideloader program? How is it compared to rookies. Im just used to the rookies GUI, very simple to use. Is this one as intuitive?


Haarisicup

the same but FFA will be more up to date from now on.


HugeHairyHomo

Just downloaded it. ANy way to change the colour scheme? The black background with white text is harsh looking. It all feels so crammed together. The grey in rookies eleviated that. If the black 'has' to stay, the gui needs to be redesigned so it's not so suffocating. Otherwise a lighter backdrop would help.


HugeHairyHomo

Sweet. Looks like i'll have to redownload telegram :/ Anyone know how to pirate FFA so I don't need to haha

Probably but he's saying that's the old process anyways if you read the paragraph after the steps. Oculus dev hub PC app is what's needed. Phone app doesn't work anymore for dev mode

No that part isn't correct. You need a credit card or phone number if you're not being seen try removing whichever one you have and putting the same info back in and then logging out and back in should work, a few people on [email protected] telegram did this and it worked right away. Basically until Oculus recognizes your dev account (whether it says verified or not) it will not allow adb debug. When you have done this it shows up in the app immediately even without bluetooth. If you need help we have been helping people nonstop at https://t.me/FFA_Help on telegram. The info is all up on pinned and a few of our mods went through it and had the same issues at first. I'm not one of them but I've hit the highlights

Oh yes so you weren't verified at all? That's how all this started. Glad you got it working

DeliciousMeatPop

It was supposed to only happen with those that weren't verified. I didn't verify but technically was verified since I had bought games before making a dev account. Not sure what happened to you


Kyldros

279 / 5000 I have a problem, the Oculus developer hub does not find my oculus, and therefore I cannot enable developer mode, I have already done all the necessary steps, only this is missing I have to wait a while before it is recognized as a developer account or it could be other?


DeliciousMeatPop

Do you have Bluetooth capabilities ? That makes it much easier. Some people get it to work be removing their credit card info then putting the same credit card back

DeliciousMeatPop

Idk I heard Bluetooth isn't needed but a CC is even though it says OR phone number they only accepting CCs now ig. I didn't have to do any of this so I'm just relaying what people are saying in [email protected] tg channel


ANONIMkiddo

ohh so that's why rookies wasn't working


Haarisicup

yup


Jafoob

Wait so rookies and resilio aren't working anymore?


JesseB342

Resilio still works as well. I run it directly from my headset but only use it for smaller downloads. Just used it a few days ago to install Skybox. FFA works fantastically. Downloaded and installed TWD in 20 minutes even on my crap WiFi.


bid0u

Rookie works, I've used it yesterday.


Jafoob

I guess it just takes a couple of tries. The servers are probably getting pounded.


gilangrr

Just a note, using the Oculus Developer App on PC you need bluetooth connection to your quest to enable developer mode. Damn spent few hours just stuck installing reinstalling cable restarting pc etc etc since my pc don't have bluetooth, so finally I tried my work laptop that have bluetooth and voila! Just a few click to enable the dev mode goddamnit.

I think that might work, there's also might be a way to use a phone as a bluetooth dongle.


marin_el_fachero

DeliciousMeatPop

thx


star_gater

will oculess get you banned tho? I thought i read something about disabling telemetry can sometimes get you banned or somethin


DeliciousMeatPop

This is not a new method but an old one that's finally "working" again. To me anything that ends in losing functionality is not worth it though. I don't recommend Oculess but it works for now... last time it stopped working sometime in April everybody that was using ended up with a ton of broken features and ended up either having to continue on like that or finding another solution. Alot of people ended up just going back to fb accounts or using an unmerged oculus account or some other method. I don't remember what exactly was broken but it was pretty serious, people were pissed and oculess has just recently released an update that fixed those problems and it now works good (until it doesn't) so I'm guessing anybody who had this installed before April of this year had to figure something else out between April and October there's no telling whether that will happen again. You won't get banned for it at least they haven't banned anybody yet but I still feel it's counter productive to piracy and not a very good solution.

DeliciousMeatPop

You can edit your post... @loader or FFAE brings it up. Thanks
