Sign in with the same Oculus or Facebook account you use with your Quest., You should then be redirected. Back to the page, we tried to open before. If it didnt just open the link. En gang til. Create an organization here. This can be any name. You want., If you have done this already before you dont – need to do this again by the way. Her. You may get asked to fill out your credit card or phone number to verify your Oculus developer account.. This is extra security added by Oculus.. You wont be asked about this if you already filled it out.. This is the case if you, for eksempel, have bought an Oculus game before. Under alle omstændigheder, read and agree to the developer agreement.

So if you dont know what adb means or what these commands do, just dont touch it., But you should be fine if you are only using it for Quest sideloading.. So my phone has a USB C slot, as well as the Quest has a USB C slot.
Så, Im using a USB C to USB C cable.. This is actually the cable that came in the box with the Quest 2.. Just make sure that your cable is able to do some data transfer and that its not just a cable for charging, because that wont work To start plug the cable in your phone and then also in your Quest..

If you open your browser and navigate to httpsitch.iogamestag oculus quest, you can find VR games that are not listed on the Oculus Quest because either they were not accepted or something else.
. Most of these are also on SideQuest.. Please be careful about downloading APKs on random sites.. You might get viruses so dont, just download anything that you can find on. Google, especially if you dont know the creator.. I also do not condone pirating games as it takes a ton of work for developers to make these games, and I think we should support them. A little., But some games are provided for free by the developers on itch.io., For eksempel, Harvest VR.. If you tap on it, you can find the download now button. Click on that. Now Itch.io will ask. If you want to support the developer by donating money., You can do that, but you can also click on. Nej tak. Just take me to the downloads. On this page.
