    Hi Everyone!

    As you know, OnePlus Cardboards have starting to show up to those who ordered them. To best use them, we have made our Official Viewing Profile from the original specs of the cardboard. These settings are made to provide the best viewing with our stock software, and have been tweaked by our staff. (Trust me they were sick of me saying, "here try this one" :D)

    Because everyone's eyes are a little different, and some of our users use custom software, not everyone likes the stock viewing profile that we have provided. We have searched the forums for others that have made custom viewing profiles and decided to feature a few. (Please remember that if you are running custom software and seeing double, we have found that changing your DPI to 400 can sometimes help.)

    The first is from the User @BrettPlusOne, who even from a hospital bed found time to make a custom profile!

    This next one is from user @BehnanAdam, he was one of the first people to make a custom profile.

    We also encourage users that if these don't work for you, please feel free to make your own. You can use this link to do so.

    Remember to check back for the official OnePlus Viewing App a few days before the launch!

    Have Fun!​

    Still waiting for mine to arrive, but I'll update this once it gets here...

    UPDATE:

    ROM: CM12.1 Nightlies (13/07) + Boeffla Kernel Beta 9
    DPI: 400
    Hardware Buttons: On
    Profile:
    View attachment 331619
    I've realized that I'm only able to have a proper image if I turn on the hardware keys. So if you have any issues, try turning off the software keys, kill the app and try again.

    It worked for me!

    I still don't understand why you're recommending non root users to change their DPI.. They'd need to use adb for that, shouldn't you at least include a tutorial?

    awesome, thanks for setting this up!

    a suggestion: it would be very helpful if you (or person who made the profile) could add a description of each custom profile to help users determine which one best suits their needs. maybe a one or two sentence description of what was changed.

    you can change dpi from within settings for cm12.1 nightlies. you can also change dpi with build.prop. I'm assuming if someone has custom dpi, they have some idea of how to change it back..?

    Adam can't do that, he's the community manager and not the head of mobile product, but at least we have a community manager with a sence of humor now, actually Adam always had one, :):)

    I tried and tried but lucked out. Google cardboard on the way from amazon. Does anyone know the best VR app to use for the opening? I dont have the stock software.

    I think that it'l be verry useful if we can have parameters for all of those QR codes...
    400DPI and "@BehnanAdam"s code works for me.

    I'm not, people who are running custom software are 99% of the time already Rooted and ROM'd. I was just reminding them that they can try different DPI's if the provided profiles do not work on stock 480 DPI.

    The app for the VR key note will be given a few days beforehand. So just stay tuned on the forum.
