VIVE Tracker Role Changer v0.8
This tool is for changing the role of the tracker to read in SteamVR as a controller. This is only required for applications that doesn't yet recognize the device correctly, e.g. mixed reality.
Note: While your tracker is reporting itself as a controller, while it shouldn't ask you to update, if it does, do not update the firmware until it's reporting itself as a tracker again.
Hopefully I didn't miss anything with the tool. Let us know how it works. Also, if you guys need this tool for another issue outside of the MR issue that we're aware of, please let us know.

For saving tracker and controller bindings in your Unity code please take a look at the Role Binding example from the Vive Input Utility plugin available the asset store:

I'm using the role changer to use the tracker as a controller, building it into a glove. How can I change the origin and rotation in steamvr so in games with hands everything lines up?

Hi @HaroldFDavidson, I think you've found a bug with our forum solution; thanks for pointing it out. As I'm aware this is still the current version. I'm not sure how to fix the strikethrough but you can apparently still downloading it by clicking on the icon immediately following the text.
Here is a direct link to v0.8: http://community.viveport.com/espti62423/attachments/espti62423/vive-developer-discussion/37/1/VIVET...
