I have been wanting an answer to this but I don't know how to word it..
KUDOS to YOU for getting the answer into a succinct single sentence..
I hope we get an answer..
I have GLasses and a DODGY USB cable (I have spent a fortune on them but I have one dodgy cable left that is 50CM long so by the time I have powered up the controller.. confirmed access and popped it gently back next to my PC.... it has 70% of the tme disconnected and reconnected ... ) also I keep getting JAVA issues whilst backing up... I am told this is due to bad cables....
Please don't tell me to buy better cables.. I have bought MANY cables claiming to be USBC Data cables and hi POWER cables.. some charge the QUEST.. NONE work reliably on DATA ...
SICK OF THIS.
For everyone still struggling with this: here's my solution to get rid of this repeating message.
The problem is that you have to authorize your Oculus with ADB, and once that is done you can simply switch off the usb message and a new world order of rest and peace will settle upon your soul.
1) First you should install the Oculus ADB Drivers 2.0 and add the platform tools:
2) Unplug your Quest from your PC's USB. Wait 3.14159265359 seconds precisely (just kidding). Plug your Quest back in again.
3) Now enter 'adb devices' in your command line prompt. It should show your device and behind it 'unauthorized'.
4) Mount your Quest (put it on your head). Now you should see that other message that allows you to ALWAYS access your Quest through your PC's USB connection.
5) For the second message (which you have been seeing thousands of times until now and which drove you to near insanity) just click 'Don't show again'.
6) Now enter 'adb devices' again and if correct, your Quest is now 'authorized'.
7) Unplug your Quest and plug it in again. You should get no prompt in your Quest and 'adb devices' should still should your Quest as a registered and authorized device.
8)) If any of this fails, reboot your Quest and try again.
9) If it still doesn't work for you then this tutorial doesn't work for you, sorry.
1. Regarding "Oculus ADB Drivers 2.0", how do I install that? I'm using macOS. It seems that the page you linked, assumes another OS of sorts.
2. I connect the cable and run "adb devices", but my Oculus Quest 2 listed does NOT display as unauthorized. Still when connecting the cable, I am prompted the dreaded "Allow access to data bla bla".
