Set time back and watch it update in Library, then it'll restart and update properly.
Set time in Setting>Time/Language> set automatic time to off and set the date back. You can reset the date when all is updated.
Edit: Oculus Rift Core Home doesn't seem to work tho.
ReEdit: Nope, games won't work either. Consider NOT setting your time back.

Okay I can confirm, changing date solution works fine. But you have to also restart Oculus Runtime Service after changing the Date.

So, they just locked millions of users out of their own hardware because somebody forgot to pay the bill? I really hope they fix this soon, because it's not going to look good for them if this lasts hours or days.

So whats the score?? How do we get back into oculus without changing system time?

Level 4
Why in the hell does the runtime service have a certificate that isn't pushed out to something like 2049???????

Level 5
Wow, this is a crazy issue!

I was wondering why it broke for me too.

I don't really want to change my date/time on my PC, that's just silly.

Is someone from Oculus going to comment? If they don’t have a support number one would think they would at the very least make an attempt to update the community thru forums, or social media.
