So i am currently working on a OpenHMD driver for the LG 360 VR and want to keep a bit of a log here for development, since other developers might be able to pitch in.
I have been able to open the device and start it up (with help of user Supportit), enabling the screen and backlight and getting the IMU data what i am currently working out, if that is figured out which should take a week or 2, we can start using it.
OpenHMD (http://www.openhmd.net) will make it possible to use the LG 360 VR on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Android and on SteamVR through the SteamVR-OpenHMD project (https://github.com/ChristophHaag/SteamVR-OpenHMD).
Current issues i am having is the screen, it reports back as a single 1440x960 display and they are rotated inwards per eye.

I need to find a method to set the orientation of the screens either by setting a mode in the firmware (no idea how to do that, have not looked into other usb calls), or a custom EDID (less desirable).
Edit: We got it working!
As long as you have USB-C with DisplayPort mode, or use a PCIe card with DP passthrough you are set.
There were some strange things with the device, that we had to deal with, like the IMU packet report was a bit odd, there is still some work to do to calibrate and drift correct it.
