    I tried fulldive and it has a setting for auto click. Also tried tightening the to strap to help with nose discomfort but makes it a bit blurry now.

    I'm charging my HTC One S to see how it'll work. My sandstone showed a bit of rubbing so didn't want it being scuffed up. The HTC fits a bit loose but it's not charged so waiting before trying it again.

    Ah I remember owning a HTC One X glad to see you still have your old HTC model. I love HTC Sense and actually have it throughout my OPO with the launcher and everything

    I actually rooted mine and have the CM nightly- actually updating it now as I post :D

    I would have been stuck on JB release otherwise.

    My HTC saved me during my RMA with my OPO.

    Sure. This profile was created with a (Diztronic) case on, centered, with the "medium" IPD setting on each lens:

    62.0 mm
    63.25 mm
    dreamcore OnePlus Loop VR 52.0/64.5 v1[​IMG]IPD 64.5 mm
    65.75 mm
    67.0 mm​

    (The phone used is a OnePlus One, stock unrooted, 401/403 physical ppi, 480 logical dpi, if it matters.)

    The distortion coefficients have been massaged tenderly to provide the straightest lines my OCD could manage in a night.

    Movies, such as those accessed in Fulldive, should display L-R edge-to-edge using available resolution.

    Let me know how it works for you, or if you need another IPD.

    I'm using Google voice access while watching videos in youtube it's tricky but it's better than pulling out the device and selecting next video.. Try this qr.. I don't know who created it but it gives good output in both oneplus one and two devices AntVR-QR-Code-qr_viewer_profile.png

    That's actually really clever using Google Voice to navigate to other video

    Thanks, you make a great job bro!
    I've done almost the same, without removing screws. I just use some 3M magic tape to fix the inner magnet. It works.
    Not so beautiful like your solution, but very easy to remove.
    Only thing I don't like is that it works only on the left side, not in the right, the hand I use most.

    But amazon on Monday will deliver me a 7 euros bluetooth VR controller that other users have successfully tested, and I'm also going to try AirDroid trick.
    :p

    The problem is that most VR apps I've tested with OPO, when you turn smartphone downside, the whole VR scene turns in the right way, but for example setting popup comands from the gear icon, don't turn.
    It's true that should not be a big issue...I'll give a try ;)

    Here is my mod to the annoying plastic which makes your nose hurt after a few minutes with the headset.

    The nose hurts because the foam padding it too soft. I tried adding a strip of half a cm stronger polystyrene foam stuff to give it more height and it was enough (didn't add them permanently).

    AirDroid will allow you to control phone from PC - so no need to remove the phone all the time.

    I also noticed that you can see phone edges from the viewer (speaker/camera etc). Looks like it was designed with 6" in mind.

    Finally I tried to add magnets also on the right eye side, reversing the smartphone or leaving as it works with the left side magnets, but it doesn't work, only with left side magnets. Very strange

    Sorry but, anyone could help me on the "just flick the outside magnet and it registers as a button press.". I am not a native speaker and I've never heard of "flick". What does it mean? Ty!
