Quest 3 stuck in Battery Saver Mode

Honored Guest

So I toggled the battery saver mode 3 days ago and ofc it lowered resolution. I wanted to test the feature. So I toggled it on, saw the change, and then toggled it off. When I turned it off, the resolution stayed the same, the fovetated size stayed the same. Everything was the same as if I was still on battery saver mode (with full charge on the headset).


I ignored this issue until today as I cannot deal with it anymore. I restarted the device, resolution is still low, text is pixelated, FOV is terrible, everything warped. The headset thinks I'm in battery saver mode still. Tried toggling it on and off and there is literally no change when turning it on, and of course no change when going back to off.



Please help. 


I'm on v60

I think there should be difference with on and off



3. no

4. yes

5. yes

6. no

7. no, tried all I could find on the net.

8. Just look at all the posts complaining about bad passthrough quality.

I've had this issue from day one, now 25 days in. It's very disappointing to see this has been going on to with random headsets since launch and has not been fixed. Can't read phone or computer screen in pass through. I didn't notice the graininess in the home screen until the other day when I switched backgrounds. I mainly do pcvr and spent days adjusting settings to get the best quality and it's still below what my hardware is capable of. 


Can we get any updates regarding this issue? This kind of bug should be number one priority to fix. We have already gave plenty of information here + bug reports. With this limitation and degreade in quality we are basically getting half what we should expect from this headset.

Yes! So the team will need an ADB bug report if someone can provide it.

This type of bug report will require command-line knowledge and familiarity with Quest Developer tools. If there is someone in this thread who has this type of knowledge and is willing to provide a report, please let me or @AliceinVRworld know. Thank you!
