STEP 2: Backup Game Data (OPTIONAL)

Backing up your Beat Saber game data is optional but if you don’t want to lose your scores I suggest you don’t skip this. The way you back up the Game data is by going to installed apps > click > the gear icon for Beat Saber and click > backup game data

STEP 3: Uninstall Modded Beat Saber and BMBF Using Side Quest

***(ONLY FOR PREVIOUS MODDERS! FIRST TIME BEAT SABER MODDERS CAN SKIP THIS STEP) ***

You can skip this step if it’s your first time to use BMBF. Now in order to Uninstall Beat Saber and BMBF, click > the gear icon for beat saber and click > uninstall app and do the same for BMBF and If you have the wrapper then uninstall it also (Refer to the Images)

Note that: You don’t have to pay again for Beat Saber if you Uninstall it. And also if it’s your First Time modding then you don’t have to Uninstall Beat Saber because your Beat Saber is in Vanilla State already. Vanilla State means that There are no Mods/Plugins installed.

STEP 4: Sideload BMBF

How to install BMBF

Go to BMBF.dev/stable and download the latest version of BMBF. The devs have released Auto installers for some of the previous versions of BMBF and they might do it again in the future. 

So if you see other files in the download page don’t get confused and just choose the APK file (REFER TO THE IMAGE). Scroll a bit and download the first apk file you find on BMBF website.

And whenever Beat Saber releases an update you might want to check here first on VR Marvelites or join the Beat Saber modding group discord to know if its safe to update. And by safe I mean you get to keep your custom songs because big updates need a newer version of BMBF.

Not to worry though the devs usually take only a day to release a new version and also keep in mind that modded games cannot be updated the normal way.

Like if Beat Saber releases an update then you’re gonna have to uninstall your modded game first > download again from the oculus store and redo the modding process. That’s Why I Suggest you to Backup your Beat Saber Data.

STEP 4.b : Setting Up BMBF

Click the icon in the Top Right Corner and find the apk file that you downloaded earlier from BMBF.dev/stable website. For old BMBF users, redownload Beat Saber from the Oculus Store and when it’s done run it once on solo mode.

Now, Launch the BMBF by going to your library and then Unknown sources. Click on BMBF and the installer itself will guide you throughout the process. Do all the things that it says like Uninstall Beat Saber etc.

Just follow the prompts that the BMBF installer is telling you to do. Then click settings and allow installation of apps from unknown sources just ignore the message that says “RESTORE APP” and click > close

STEP 5: Installing Custom Beat Saber Songs On Your Oculus Quest

This is the part that you’ve been waiting for. Scroll down while you’re in BMBF app and start downloading some songs by clicking the download button for each song. 

It’s going to say failed if you keep clicking while the song is already on queue. After downloading songs click the “SYNC TO Beat Saber” button in the TOP RIGHT CORNER because the songs will not appear in Beat Saber if you Don’t click on the “SYNC TO Beat Saber” button. 

Click the playlists tab in the Beat Saber to check your songs, you’ll see that BMBF automatically creates a custom song playlist but you can edit the name and add more playlist and move songs from one playlist to another. 

Now just start your Beat Saber and click allow when “Allow Permissions” prompt appears. 

So you can see a “Custom Songs Tab” on the Bottom right. This is where all your Custom Beat Saber songs appear and if you’re wondering about your Music packs that you downloaded and purchased, don’t worry you didn’t lose them. Just go to the music packs tab and download them again.

(ONLY FOR PREVIOUS MODDERS WHO INSTALLED CUSTOM SONGS IN THEIR BEAT SABER)

For old users you can restore your songs that you downloaded with a previous version of BMBF by going to tools and clicking reload songs folder. Then don’t forget to click on the “SYNC TO Beat Saber” button.

Restoring The Data

The last step is to restore the Beat Saber game data. Open sidequest and go to installed apps and click > the gear icon for Beat Saber and then click > restore button (REFER TO THE IMAGE)
