Super excited to see this! It's been pretty painful for many of our customers with controler frequently unpairing. 

Does the firmware update automatically updates the controler or do you have to check Controler Firmware seperately?

Has anyone else with the Focus 3 Eye tracker experience "Eye Tracker Error. Eye tracker did not work correctly. Please press power button to fix this error" after updating system software? Absolutely no hardware changes, eye tracker just refuses to work after the update.

Yes, latest beta headset firmware fixed the issue for me.  I was about to return it.

This version activates passthrough when a controller loses tracking. That's pretty confusing to users, can this be deactivated anywhere?

I'd tried to hide my controllers but did not get the passthrough be activated, only when I close both my controllers the pairing tab would show with passthrough?

Just curious, in what case did you meet the passthrough?
