How To Sideload onto the Oculus Quest

Get your Oculus Quest here:
64GB version:

128GB version:

Tutorial on how to UNINSTALL sideloaded apps here:

Before you can sideload onto your Oculus Quest, you must FIRST put it into DEVELOPER MODE. Now the way to put it into developer mode is EXACTLY THE SAME for the Oculus Go, so here is a 60 second video showing how to put the Oculus Go into Developer Mode, it is EXACTLY THE SAME for the Oculus Quest:

After you’ve watched that video now watch the rest of this video to learn how to sideload.
You will need ADB which you can get here:

Simply extract that to any place on your PC then navigate to the folder using the command prompt.
You also must first plug your Oculus Quest into your PC and it should automatically detect it and install the drivers for you, it did for me at least.
Now using the command prompt from inside the folder you extracted the contents of the adb zip file type “adb devices” and press ENTER. If all goes well it should show you the serial number of your Quest and say “UNAUTHORIZED”, simply go into your Quest and authorize it via the pop up prompt that you will see. Now you can sideload any apk you like via “adb install filename.apk”, as shown in the video. Good luck!

  • I’m raging I plugged my quest in and nothing is happening and I don’t get where you go to the folder and type and devices it just says it doesn’t recognize it. Someone explain please time 1:10

  • Sir, Icannot find a link to apk files that have to be dowloaded to pc and side loaded to quest.. can You please tell me where should I get that apk files? Thanks

  • I'm lost at 1.10, you go too fast 🙂 after you open the cmd, you add cd 'space' and paste the location of the file…. Nothing happens when I try this, I even opened the cmd directly from the path with cmd, nothing runs even tough I followed every step, downloaded the updated platform tool. I am already in developer mode, sidequest installed and even using new apps in Quest. Any ideas?

  • ik im a bit late, but when it gets to list of devices attached it is blank, even tho i can see the quest in my devices.

  • If anyone else is getting an unknown usb device errors for windows 10, I managed to fix it for me by downloading the latest adb drivers from

  • Is it possible to play Blue-Ray disks directly off disk on Oculus Quest? I currently am sharing DVD drive and see it/folder using SkyBox. But not sure which files to use. Is there a blue-ray player for Android that might work? So much easier to just rent the movie and play it directly.

  • So you're not going to tell us how you fixed the ADB devices problem!!??!?!!?? I'm having the same problem you were and I can't figure out how to fix it, please let us know

  • there is a much easier way to install the apks, drag and drop via sidequest, not sure why the author of this video has not mentioned this. no need to run adb commands, you drag/drop on the top left corner of sidequest menu from Windows where it says "drag and drop your apk/obb files…"

  • Came here to find a solution to my problem with the driver, but still nothing… I have the latest version of adb, but after typing "adb devices" shows only "list attached" and nothing else. My laptop does detect there's something plugged in, shows it as "Unknown device – driver failure", and no matter what I do it just won't work. Help!

  • I take it I need a different cable to actually connect the Quest to the PC as well? The one which comes with it looks like USB-C but doesn't actually work.

  • hello when i try to install somthing the pc ask me with wat i want to open it and i can see the quest connectid thanks

  • Whenever I plug in the quest nothing happens, it makes a sound telling me that I plugged it in but doesn’t show up in file explorer

  • Im stuck, I have the extracted folder, developer mode done (I've used sidequest) and when I try entering 'adb devices' this is what shows "adb : The term 'adb' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the

    spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

    At line:1 char:1

    + adb devices

    + ~~~

    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (adb:String) [], CommandNotFoundException

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException"

  • 2:49 "Okay now I'm here" How did you get there? Sorry if I'm not as clever with thus stuff but I was following along nicely until this point.

  • Its not working for me when I try to install ADB i get " adb is not recognized as internal or external command, operable program or batch file". Can someone please help window laptop windows 10

  • i did manage to install some apps but i can't find them.. there is nothing in unknown sources and somehow don't have the TV category.. maybe because I live in the middle east?
