Default How to enable debugging mode on Jelly 4.2

I just loaded 4.2 update and there is not way to enable debug mode.

I'm running Google Nexus toolkit 3.8.0, and it's asking to turn on debugging mode.

I cannot find i in settings.

Any thoughts?

Here's what someone posted on the XDA forums:

It's fairly easy to enable DEVELOPER OPTIONS under JB 4.2:

1. As usual, goto Settings -> About Phone.

2. Goto “Build Number” at the end of the Scroll list.

3. Tap on “Build Number” for 7 times. While typing at the third times, you should see prompt message to indicate you that 4 more taps to go to developer options.

4. Continue 4 more taps.

5. You are now done and go back to the Setting page.

6. You should see Developer Option appear on your setting list now.

With Developer Option appeared, you can enable the USB debugging mode for future flashing and development work.

It's typically in Settings > Developer Options > USB Debugging.

Make sure the Dev Options are turned on.

It keeps non-rooters from having the potentially harmful options available to them.


You'd be suprised how many people find the option to kill all background processes immediately after exiting and think thats a good idea

Somehow I'm reminded of the days when you had to know the secret knock to get into the boyz klubhouse no grrrls allowed.

Thanks for the sequence, though. It unlocked Developer Options for me.
