  1. Awe man, I only have the white one and I can't use it anymore since Samsung phones have stopped using that kind of charging plug… If I can't use it to improve my Vive, I guess it's just useless now…

  2. I did this mod a couple of years ago on my OG Vive and I'm not sure why I changed back. I think I never got the barrel distortion fix working well enough so I got dizzy easier. I will give it a go again now though and see if I can maybe find a config that works for my headset.

    Good vid!

  3. My friend has this mod and never did the file correction and it still looks amazing, no barrel,just clean crisp image with no strain, played it for hours,is the file correction really necessary?

  4. Are the adapters you're selling on ebay the latest version? I'd like to purchase a set but i want to be sure i don't get some old stock. Also, would shipping to poland be possible?

  5. You lost me at the BARREL DISTORTION FIX. I'm worried about ruining something that's not necessarily broken. Sound like a lot of work.

    I just notice that text blurs when it's further away in my Vive… along with the coke bottle lenses and god rays. The screen door effect is still there though, right?

  6. A question, when open up the console. I always get LHR-622D3AC8: Expected 3487 bytes of config but only found 2480. Rejecting config.

    And when it load up, I get. 1h> LHR-622D3AC8: Packet received after 5.000s, keepalive (0/5)

    And it can't be backup. But I somehow manage to make it find the headset and made a backup. But I notice when I open up console, the headset is loosing connection with SteamVR. And when I close console it appear again. Not sure why this is happening.
