Due to some legal trouble- most notably with a legal battle in Germany- Meta will be removing the requirement to have a Facebook account on the Oculus Quest headsets within the next year! Meta haters rejoice!

What I can't wait for is the eventual root method for the quest 2. I just got my quest 2 on the 1st of Nov. and I've been having a blast with it ever since. This is also great news, I cannot wait to not have to tie my device to FB anymore! (Now I can only imagine what using a Pimax is like...)

Welcome to the Virtual Reality

Unfortunately I don't see it getting rooted for a few years minimum

So it will be replaced with a Meta account instead. . .

I'd imagine that will behave more like a Google account that can be used across many services. Makes more sense than using a "social media" platform as an account, I guess.

No matter the solution, they will still collect as much information from you as they can. So what's the difference? At least now those "hur-durr Facebook bad" people will be a bit quieter since they probably won't comprehend that.

I'll believe it when I see it happen. As much as I want it to happen, I do not see Zuck allowing it to happen without a fight.
