    I know MUCH less about the technical side of things BUT I do know a couple programmers that are regulars here, @EgoAnt & @KermEd who MIGHT know the answer.
    And the solution is very simple.
    As reddit user JSSR1234 suggested for blocking nfc signal from daydream viewer.

    By getting aluminium fold, folding it up a bunch of times and putting that between the phone and the lid. This stops it from reading NFC and it seems to be working fine. Tested it for a few minutes with different games and I have never been able to play this long before!

    THAT sounds like a heatsink! It might be blocking NFC, but it's also dissipating heat!

    I know. But it's not the heat. It takes 5 second to get it to crash with nfc tagged. I played several minutes without nfc (either holding phone to viewer without closing lid or with foil blocking nfc). It does not build up any heat in a few seconds. Besides it worked flawless in cardboard which blocks more air circulation than daydream viewer.

    Daydream app breaks when nfc is tagged on some units (maybe Exynos?).

    Couldn't you also just turn off NFC?

    Yeah. Wouldn't that be an even better solution. Unfortunately daydream refuses to start without nfc enabled.

    That's a daydream app condition.

    I wonder if you can use the Daydream Apps store and everything Daydream in the GearVR headset, because having two headsets is not a wise idea I think.

    I don't remember if you can install the APK in a non listed phone and it works, does anyone know about it?

    Kinda, but it's a bit involved. He's THAT PSA.....

    It involves rooting the phone, and it doesn't always work well, there is a reason Google only approves certain phones.

    I read that and even when the Blog just refer a few steps, a lot of those require some skills and aren't something of 10 minutes or less which was the time I needed to read the post, rooting can be done with some tools like Kingo Root, which does the job in a pretty easy way, but sometimes nothing goes right and there is the problem.

    Thanks for sharing my friend!
