I had to go a diffrent route, the Steam Controller has a usb dongle which can easily be reflashed into a watchman dongle. Currently using that one + my two working dongles. Try giving it shot, works pefectly.

Simualir Thread with dead dongles: https://community.viveport.com/t5/Technical-Support/Vive-Tracker-2-0-Issue/m-p/16753 Imgur Album: https://imgur.com/a/qAWwkLP ------------------------------------------------------------ I purchased 3 Vive (2018) 2.0 trackers on April 19th. Shortly after starting using them I noticed that I could not get three trackers working. Everytime I would try to connect three trackers, SteamVR gave me a (10016) error. The error tells me that my trackers are not communicating properly and that they needed a firmware update. Whenever I would connect my tracker to my PC, they were already up-to-date to the latest firmware. I googled the web, asked friends, went to various Discord channels to troubleshoot my woes. Things I did: - Put the dongles far away from the computer or any power source (I even used a 5m active USB extension cable) - Tried two different USB hubs. - Removed all VR USB drivers, restarted, unplugged all the dongles, re-paired the vive wands first, then re-paired the trackers one by one. - Reinstalled SteamVR - Tried every variation of dongles/trackers. - Tried 5 different brands of micro usb cables to try to update firmware. - Tried different USB ports (USB2.0/USB3.0) - Plugged/Unplugged dongles with restarts and USB driver wipes. Replugged in one by one during re-pairing. - Removed any other source of 2.4ghz interference (Including wifi, logitech mice, etc) On April 23rd I ordered one additional Vive (2018) 2.0 tracker. On April 25th the 4th tracker arrived! (yay) But no, same error to my disappointment. I spent almost 5 hours, removing USB drivers, restarting and trying every combination of 4 dongles and 4 trackers. Through experimentation I have discovered that I have two dead Vive Tracker Dongles. There are 2 dongles that never worked with any of the 4 trackers. These dongles are DOA and do not work. (I tested these two dongles all four trackers, they had terrible tracking quality and most importantly: caused the 10016 error) I would like request help in getting replacements for my dongles, thank you!
