    Hi, welcome to the forum, I didn't get if you are saying that you tried and it in fact works or if you are asking if someone knows if it will work.

    As far I know it doesn't work, I don't know about any hack to make it work, but could be great but not a wise move from Samsung to allow that easily.

    No it doesnt work. Ive also seen people trying custom roms with no success.
    The only thing you can do is use it as a glorified carboard by putting it UNDER the connection pin slot and in the other end. But then you have a whole other issue of centering the view

    very cheap option for a cardboard headset :/

    I don't think it should work because Samsung won't be happy with it, but maybe someone hacked a way to... that's why I was asking if Rohan in fact tested it.

    My response was aimed at the thread title. Your right about samsung not allowing it they've paid millions to develop/license and market it
    Hence why you dont see the gear 360 working with many other devices either.

    Also theres the issue of devices actually fitting into the device.
