How To Enable Secret Developer Mode on Android Phones

The one thing that makes Android distinct as an operating system for mobile smartphones and tablets is its being an Open Source platform that encourages developers to engage in various types of development activities. And the one feature without which the custom development would not have been so easier is the availability of the “Developer Options” that is found under Settings of all Android devices by default.

These developer options contain advanced features that help any person with a developer’s bent of mind build, test, debug, and package Android apps and mods.

Features of Developer Mode

Even if you are an average user and wish to root, install a ROM or mod on your Android device, you must turn on USB Debugging mode on your phone or tablet. And you’ll not be able to do it unless you enable Developer Mode on your device first.
