Vive Tracker Role Changer (current version: 1.0)

*** UPDATE:

We are taking the tool down temporarily since it's somehow modifying some user's HMDs. If you still have the tool and are still using it, please remember to DISCONNECT ALL STEAMVR DEVICES before running the tool as well as carefully read the instructions presented to you. Otherwise you risk bricking your VIVE like some have already done.

 

Due to high demand, I'm reposting the Tracker Changer with some updates that hopefully will keep your trackers from bricking.

 

This tool is to be used only be advanced developers that have a need to change the way a tracker identifies itself to SteamVR. If you don't understand what this means, then you should probably not use this tool as it can brick your device and void your warranty.

 

Please only use this tool if you really need to, otherwise, if you are developing for your new application, we recommend using the VIVE Input Utility.

 

Features:

  • Support for Tracker Pro (SteamVR Tracking 2.0)  New!
  • Change Tracker to identify as a Controller
  • Revert Tracker to identify as a Tracker
  • Backup/Restore Tracker configuration  New!
  • Recovery for Trackers with corrupt configurations  New!

 

Steps:

  1. Unplug VIVE and all SteamVR devices from your computer.
  2. Plug in the tracker via USB cable.
  3. Run tool and follow prompts.
  4. Restart SteamVR.

 

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO RESTORE YOUR TRACKER BEFORE UPDATING ITS FIRMWARE.

VIVR should support the Tracker out of box. Can you expand on the issues you're seeing?

I believe it's a setting in the software to set the correct device to be used as the LIV virtual device. I would pose your question to the LIV Discord channel for further assistance. I'll try to see if I can reproduce your issue on my end as well.
