A new build is released for testing, version 53:



- Added support for Multi Resolution tours!!!

This means that now almost any Pano2VR 360 panorama tour can be watched with VR Tourviewer on GearVR.

Note: the level width is chosen closest to 1536 pixels, but no larger than 2048 pixels to avoid memory problems. If you see a very low resolution panorama, then make sure you output to a level with a width of 1536 in Pano2VR 'Image' settings. Level tilesize ideally is 510 with 1 pixel overlap (= default in 'Advanced').

Please let me know what you think of it!

Best regards, Ruud


Hi, it's not working on an upgraded S7 Edge (Nougat). It's saying make sure APK is SIGNED.

Possibly your (Google) Device ID has changed due to the upgrade. Or you're using another device?
If you can send me the new ID I'll add a signature for that device in the app so you can run it again.

You could try getting the Device ID with: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skyworxx.sideloadvrdeviceid
It seems that this app doesn't work for Nougat though, please let me know if you can confirm this.

The other way to get the Device ID is to use ADB (Android Debugging Bridge) and run the command 'adb devices'.
The needed SDK Platform Tools (a 4Mb download) can be downloaded here: https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools.html

Just unzip the package (for example to C:\ADB), it doesn't need to be installed.  Connect your phone with USB.
Then start a command prompt and run: <path to platform-tools folder here >\adb devices
So if you unzipped to C:\ADB then the command will be: C:\ADB\platform-tools\adb devices
You may have to run the command twice. It will then show the device ID for your phone. You can remove the unzipped files/folders after that.

It's inconvenient that it has to be done like this, but for this stage in development it seems the only way for devices with Nougat. Devices running Android Marshmallow didn't have this problem up to now.


sideloadVr device id is not working,  It's nit showing the device id.


adb devices on cmd command is not working either, it's not showing anything. It says LIST OF DEVICES, then nothing folows. You're right this is a new device, my note5 vrtourviewer is still working.

Ah, my mistake, you need enable USB debugging on your phone first:

- From the Home screen, select "Apps" > "Settings".
- Scroll down and select "About phone".
- Scroll down and tap "Build number" seven times until you see a message that says "Developer mode has been enabled".
- Back out of the screen, and now you'll have the ability to select "Developer options" in the "Settings" section.
- Under "Developer options", slide "Developer options" switch to "On".
- Slide the check the "USB debugging" to "On" and you're ready to use your device with developer tools.

After that, when connecting with USB and running the adb devices command again it should list your device.



got the device id for DEVICE ID app. I emailed it to you already.

Ruud van Reenen

It seems that's not the right ID.
To be sure: can you try the Device ID app I've added to the dowload section and email me the result?
