After a sudden shutdown of literally all Rift headsets, Oculus has issued a downloadable patch along with a guide on how to get your headset up and running again. Oculus had forgot to renew its security certificate, hence the disastrous glitch. Users had been advised to set their console’s date earlier as a temporary solution. It should be noted that the patch is required for all owners, even those who don’t use it regularly.

You can download the update and follow the guide from the Oculus Rift website, and all headset owners since February will receive a $15 store credit. Oculus has also tweeted out their thanks for everyone’s patience and a number of the company’s execs apologized, including Facebook’s Vice President of VR, Hugo Barra.
