Jellybean 4.2

So you’ve upgraded to Jellybean 4.2.2 and you lost Developer Mode/Options.

Well here is how to get it back.

  • Go to – Settings > About > Software Information > More > Build number
  • Tap on Build number repeatedly about 7 times, it will start counting down the amount of times you have to click.
  • After touching 7th time you will see a message that, “you are now a developer!”.

You should now see the Developer options in the Settings menu. Fun stuff like USB debugging will now be available! Have fun and don’t break anything! 🙂
