Step 2: Create OrganisationTo allow installing apps & games to your headset we need to enable developer mode. To do this, you have to be a registered "developer" on the Oculus website. This process is free, quick and easy to setup. Go to dashboard.oculus.com on your PC and create an 'organization'. You'll be asked to accept the developer agreement. 

Step 3: Install Drivers ( Windows Only - skip this on Android / Mac / Linux )Install the driver software for your device. Go to developer.oculus.com on your PC and download the drivers for your headset. The Oculus Go drivers work for the quest also. To install the drivers extract the zip folder, right click the android_winusb.inf file and click install. 

Step 4: Enable Developer Mode and RebootNow that you’re a "developer", open the Oculus app on your smartphone or tablet. In the Settings tab, tap on the headset and tap 'More settings'. In the list, you should now see Developer Mode. Once you have enabled developer mode it is a good idea to reboot your headset to be able to see it on the device. 

Step 5: Connect USB Cable and Allow USB DebuggingNow its time to connect the USB cable. Once you are connected you will have to allow USB debugging access on your headset. If you put your headset on at this point you will see something like the below. You should also select 'Always allow from this computer' to prevent this message from coming up every time you connect.

Important 1): Disable Unlock Pattern in the Oculus app in Settings > Quest > More Settings > Unlock Pattern.
See the image in Step 2 for more info.

Important 2): Try a phone USB cable instead of the cable that comes with your Quest. 

That's it! You are done!You should now see a green dot on the top left of SideQuest and the name of your headset. If you don't see that then you should verify your drivers here.

Otherwise please enjoy SideQuest, you can now start installing apps, look out for the "Install To Headset" buttons to get started!
