Palmer Luckey, the Oculus VR cofounder who was ousted from Facebook amid controversy after selling his company to the tech giant for $2 billion, is offering a $5,000 bounty to anyone who can hack Oculus’ new Quest 2 virtual-reality headset.

“I’m still offering $5000 for a Quest 2 jailbreak! Jailbreakers, dm me. Let’s break free of FB’s anti-competitive, anti-privacy ecosystem!” Mozilla VR engineer Robert Long tweeted Friday.

“I will match this, who else is in?” Luckey replied.

Facebook did not respond to a request for comment on this story.
