Q-Cal Installation Guide on QBiq Device: Step-by-Step Instructions

Q-Cal on QBiq TD-1050

You'll need an USB stick preferably with nothing on it, as there is a chance that the QBit device won't accept your USB Stick, and it'll need to be formatted by the QBit device.
First step is to check if the device needs to be formatted.

Formatting the USB stick:

1. Head to the Settings App.
Android device app screen with icons for ApkInstaller, Camera, Downloads, Explorer, Gallery, Lighting, Music, ProxyDroid, Search, Video, and highlighted Settings gear icon.

2. Click on Storage
Android device settings menu showing options for Wi-Fi, Cellular networks, Proxy, Sound, LED, Security password, with Storage option highlighted.

3. If the QBit device says that your device is corrupt. Select your USB Stick in the menu, and press Set Up. This will delete everything on your USB stick, so backup the files if you wish to save anything on it.
If your USB stick works fine with the device, ignore this step.
Storage settings screen showing device storage at 2.21 GB used of 7.28 GB and portable storage for a USB disk with 115 MB used of 28.88 GB.

After that's done, your USB Stick can now be used to install Q-Cal on.

4. While you're in the settings, click on Wi-Fi. Here you'll need to set the device with the network you wish. 
    We recommend using an Ethernet cable if possible, as that would make the device more stable.

Install the Q-Cal APK file:

1. Plug the USB stick into your PC.
2. Open Q-Cal in your browser.
3. Click on Views at the top of the site, and then select Meeting Room Displays.
4. Now click on Download For Android, and in this menu you'll need to select the newest version.
    The file will now download on your PC, and you can move it to your USB Stick using the File Explorer.

1. Insert the USB Stick into the QBit device.
2. Open the APKInstaller app.
