Device Setup Guide


  • Oculus Quest or Quest 2 headset and controllers
  • Oculus Account
  • Headphones (for best experience)
  • Windows, Mac or Linux Computer with USB C connection
  • *USB C Cable

*The included cable from Oculus is USB C to USB C. If your computer only has traditional USB ports, you can use a cable like this.

Step 1:

Confirm that your Oculus Quest headset is powered on and setup to sideload content. Ensure SideQuest is downloaded on your computer and recognizing the headset (should show a green dot in the top left of SideQuest when connected to device). You can find a specific guide for sideloading setup here.

Step 2:

You should have received an email to setup your account with ArborXR. Create an account and ensure you have the ArborXR Pairing app installed on your computer.

Step 3:

With the headset connected to SideQuest, click the “Run ADB Commands” button in the top right (looks like a rectangle with an arrow pointing to the right).

Select “Custom Command”.

Copy the following text then paste into the “Run the Command” box:

adb shell am start -n com.oculus.vrshell/.MainActivity -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d apk://com.oculus.vrshell.desktop -e target

Click “Run Command”

Step 4:

Put on your Quest headset, and you should now see a new menu floating in front of you.

Scroll down to the “Accounts” section and remove all accounts, including the Oculus and Facebook accounts (don’t worry, this won’t effect your apps). The accounts section should be completely empty when finished.

Step 5:

Open the ArborXR Pairing app and login. If prompted, select the Axon Park organization.

You should see the device showing in the pairing app with a field to provide a name. Please use the “name of your organization + the device name” (example “Axon Park Quest 2”)

Click install and it should work. If you get an error, you can review the ArborXR support page or email us directly at [email protected].

Once the installation is complete, please notify us and we will load the relevant content onto the headset.
