Android 4.2+: enable USB debug mode (Nexus 4, Nexus 7, etc)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/11/15

Researched this a long while ago, but just presented this at my Delphi cross-platform session on ITDevCon 2013 (of which some sessions have been broadcasted on YouTube):

With Android 4.2 and up, they did hide the debug mode a bit.

Perform these steps one to enable debug mode:

  1. Go to “Settings”.
  2. Scroll down to “About phone” or “About table”.
  3. Tap on “About phone” or “About table” to go to the “About” screen.
  4. In the “About” screen, scroll down, to “Build number”
  5. Tap on “Build number” seven (7!) times. It will give you some messages until finally it shows “You are now a developer”.

The above steps unlocked the “USB debugging” mode.

To enable or disable “USB debugging” mode:

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. Choose “Developer Options”
  3. Choose “Debugging”
  4. Choose “USB Debugging”
