For Oxygen OS - 5.1.3 Oreo on Oneplus 5T.
Flash in TWRP after making a backup.
Please read all info below.

Daydream VR

!!! CAUTION !!!

Use at your own risk. Backup before flashing.
I am not responsible for bricked devices,
thermonuclear war or your monkey dancing samba!


IMPORTANT INFO:

Flashing

The installer changes one file. It overwrites \system\etc\permissions\handheld_core_hardware.xml
with an updated version to enable the Google Daydream support.

Removing

There is also the remover ZIP. It restores the stock OOS 5.1.3 permission file.

After flashing - get ready

You wiped your cache and dalvik and boot the device.
Go to your application list and show system apps.
Delete cache and data of the Play Store app so Daydream is
downloadable via Play Store. Open Play Store,
do not forget to set your previous Play Store configuration and install:

• Daydream
• Daydream Keyboard
• Google VR Services

Some reported that setting to skip all intros in Daydream developers options
fixed problems that occured.

Start, set the other config which is needed and try. For me it works fine.
The only thing that is a bit sad is that the 5T with full HD gives a not very sharp display view - it is grainy.

Does it work on 5.0.3?

Also, does it trigger the 'safetynet'?

Actually the file did not change for 5.0.3, but I changed the ZIP filename to clearify.

I don't think so.

By the way; it is a tiny mod that does no heavy system tweaking.
I made it just for convenience so users do not need to use a root explorer and text editor for the changes.

Thank you.
Just FYI, it's not working in Oreo Resurrection Remix.
I can open Daydream without issue.
But as soon as I put my OP5T into the headset, the OP5T hard reboots.
I attached a logcat in case anyone is interested.

See, I am not a real dev... just some guy with basic knowledge. I updated the ZIP and made two new for the ROMs you use.
Try them, but read the OP/CAUTION section please.

The attached ZIPs contain the modified file from your ROMs which are different in one line compared to OOS.
Plus I added a mod for the build.prop to maybe make it work.

If all fails I guess this try was just an interesting waste of time,
and someone more advanced would have to figure out a possible solution.

As I wrote I can not help any further.
I installed Google VR keyboard, Daydream, VR services etc. and tested some apps under OOS 5.0.3, but all without VR hardware - I do not own the headset/controller. I enabled developer options on Daydream and skipped all intros, read that elsewhere.

I've got the same problem, RR 8.0.1. Logcat implies that the ACore process lacks permissions to access the VR hardware, and crashes upon attempting it, taking the entire systemui and all of its children with it.

I'm in the process of experimenting and seeing if it's possible to grant those permissions somehow..

Anybody got it working? I saw the set today at a store and thought about buying it...

This has always worked for me: https://www.xda-developers.com/force...compatibility/
never needed to change the device name, just added the 2 lines and rebooted. Daydream apps download and update via playstore as well.
