- 3Remove Your Samsung Mobile Device.
- 4Install Oculus Software.Once you remove the mobile from the headset, you will be met with a Gear VR welcome screen. Here, you tap next on the welcome screen and follow the instructions. Be aware, you may be asked to update your Android version if it is out of date and also to install selected applications. You can also choose to install additional content by tapping the "Browse Oculus Store" button, however, this is not mandatory. Once you have done this, you should reconnect your headset. As you put on the headset, you will be met with either a blank screen or a loading icon. A word of advice, should you see any errors or visual disturbances on your headset like improperly formatted images or text, remove the device from the headset, wait a few seconds and try reconnecting it again.
- 5Create Oculus Account.To download or purchase any content from the Oculus Store, you are going to need an Oculus Account. To create this, you should launch the Oculus app after it finishes its installation and then follow the prompts. You can also do this by waiting for the prompt that occurs the first time you enter the Oculus Store. You will need to create a username and password for your account creation to be a success. Remember to enter a valid email address as you will need it for confirmation. And remember that whatever username you choose, others will be able to see it in games or activities. So keep that in mind. Some apps on the Oculus Store are completely free, while others are classed as paid content and need to be purchased. If all goes as it should, you will soon see the Gear VR Health and Safety Warning. Read, acknowledge and understand the warning and the Oculus Home will start to load.
