Overclock Video Quality on Samsung S8/S9 and Oculus GO
VROnly from reddit recently posted an awesome tip to increase the VR Video Quality at the cost of performance. Careful, this can damage you Smartphone or Oculus Go device.
First you will need to install the android debug bridge utility on your computer.
You can learn how do do that Here
Next enable USB debugging on your phone
Which you can learn to do Here
Plug the phone into the computer, open command prompt, and type the following commands:
adb shell setprop debug.oculus.textureWidth 2048
adb shell setprop debug.oculus.textureHeight 2048
DO NOT restart the phone after you type the commands in adb as this will reset the phone to its default state. I use Pigasus app with a Galaxy S7(US version) and to my eyes the video quality seems much better. If you find the phone lagging you can use the following commands.
adb shell setprop debug.oculus.cpuLevel 3
adb shell setprop debug.oculus.gpuLevel 3
Again these values will reset if you restart the phone.
For the Oculus Go
You have to connect your phone to Oculus GO using the Oculus GO App
Go to settings and turn on developer mode. You will have to register a developer name with Oculus to do this, but its easy and you don’t have to give any other new information. Once developer mode is on you can use the adb commands through the command prompt.
know of at least one that is unique to the Go which is: adb shell setprop debug.oculus.foveation.level 0/1/2/3. This sets the level of fixed foveated rendering.
