Fix Daydream View VR controller pairing

Sometimes when the Daydream controller needs an update, or just in general, it will fail to connect. It will also not re-pair. The controller light will just fast flash (not the triple flash for low battery).

Force re-pair Daydream View controller

The stability of Daydream View VR has been dramatically improved with updates, but if you need to force-repair, things to try in order:

  1. Reset and re-pair the controller
  2. Uninstall and reinstall VR services and Daydream app.
  3. Follow on screen directions to re-pair when entering the fresh Daydream app.

This helped when updating from Daydream controller software version 1.0.21 to 1.0.25.
