USB debugging mode is important to anyone who tweaks or love to have fresh apps installed for personal pleasure or even work. If you want a deeper level of access to your smartphones or especially if you are a programmer and you want to code a new app, then this presents a starting block to get familiar with. It creates a connection between your android and a computer with Android SDK (Software Development Kit). This will allow direct command manipulation from the PC CLI (Command Line Interface).
In Android, Developer mode or Developer options allows the owner to tweak allowing mock locations or keeping the screen awake while charging. If you are looking to install some third party software or maybe you just simply want to be granted a more extensive access, then you’ll have to enable your LG G3’s customization mode. But in order for you to do this, you’ll have to access the developer options on your phone first.
The following steps will show you how to do this by activating the Developer option:
- To start, click on the settings menu. Look for the settings icon – the one shaped like a gear – on the app menu or you can also find it sliding down the notification tray.
- After accessing the settings menu, tap on the “General” option found on the last column. Then, scroll down and look for “About Phone” under “General” and tap on it.
- Scroll down again until you see the “Software Information” option. Tap it. There, you will see which Android version you are currently running, baseband info, kernel details, build number and software version. Focus on “Build number”.
- Now, you’ll need to tap quickly on the “Build number” option for 6-7 times.
- A cyan-blue notification will pop up, advising you that you are already a developer.
- This is where activating your developer option ends.
- Now, go back to the “General” option still on the last column of the settings menu.
- When you scroll down to the bottom of the option, you will find that a “Developer Options” menu is already created.
- Look for authentication permission and enable it. If successful, there will be a check mark beside it.
- A prompt will ask you if you will allow the process, you just need to click OK.
This instruction also works on any Android 4.2 Jellybean. But, these options are mainly concentrated on expert Android programmers and we ask you to proceed with certain amount of care and remember not to mess with any of the settings if you have no idea how they work.
