Ronin SC with Sony a7ii Focus Pull NOT WORKING

The Ronin SC is not pulling focus with the focus wheel for my Sony a7ii.

I have a compatible lens (Zeiss FE 55 mm f/1.8)
I have successfully connected using the MCC-C cable (connected to the micro USB extension for the a7ii) and can record/stop perfectly fine
Focus wheel indicator light is solid green
The camera is in MF mode
USB connection is on "PC remote"
There is no "Ctrl w/ Smartphone" feature on a7ii
Camera and Ronin SC firmware are all up to date
I'm turning the devices on in the right order: Ronin then camera
I even tried mounting the focus wheel on the other side

I feel like I'm doing everything right and I've spent HOURS reading forums, watching videos, etc. on how to make it work.

The most promising solution I've come across seems to be to switching the camera to MF and the lens itself to AF. Unfortunately, my Zeiss FE 55 mm f/1.8 lens does not have an AF/MF manual switch, so this is impossible for me to do.

There must be another solution, otherwise why would DJI put this lens (and many other lenses without AF/MF switches) on their compatible lenses list?

Please help me figure out how to make the focus wheel work with my a7ii!!
