USB Debugging and other Developer options in Android phone or tablet are most important thing for developers and advance users. I bet you have used it before if you played with stuffs like rooting, Installing Custom ROMs (CyanogenMod, Miui, etc.), Modifying system apps. From Android 4.2 Android Jelly Bean or above versions, you won’t be able to find USB Debugging option directly from Settings menu – unlike previous versions of Android OS. You need to enable it manually by following few steps. Google has disabled entire Developer options for people who don’t know anything about Android OS. They could messed up Developer Settings mistakenly. For that reason, it is hidden and there is no chance to find Developer options and mess up settings accidentally by a beginner.
To enable USB Debugging mode, follow the steps below
- Open Android Settings
- Chose About phone from bottom
- Find Build number and tap (click) 7 times
- Congratulations! You have just enabled Developer options
- Now, go to Settings > Developer options > check USB Debugging
If you have any problem regarding USB Debugging, please leave a comment.
