From Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) the options for developers come by hidden defect. Google has preferred developers only have access to these options to prevent the average user enters their menu and select or deselect options that may cause undesired operation of the terminal.

So how we enable and disable developer mode in Jelly Bean?

Enable development options is easy , just have to go to Settings> Device Information and press seven times on the build number . Once you do leave us message Now you're a developer! and because it will show in this paragraph settings.

Development options we need to activate the debugging USB and to use the tools that offers SDK for Android , such as ADB and Fastboot and execute on our device applications we are developing.

  1. Open Settings> About on your Android phone or tablet.
  2. If you have a Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 8.0, Tab 3  or any other Galaxy device with Android 4.2, open Settings> More tab> About and tap it.
  3. If you have Galaxy Note 3 or any Galaxy device with Android 4.3, go to Galaxy Note 3 from Settings> General> About and tap the Build version 7 times.
  4. Now scroll to Build number and tap it 7  times.
  5. After tapping the Build Number 7 times, you will see a message “You are now a developer!” If you have a Galaxy S4 or any other Samsung Galaxy device with Android 4.2, the message reads as follows- “Developer mode has been enabled”.
  6. Return to the main Settings menu and now you’ll be able to see Developer Options.
  7. Tap on Developer options and mark the box in front of  USB Debugging  to enable it.
  8. To disable USB Debugging mode later, you can uncheck the box before the option
  9. To enable Developer Options, go to Settings> Developer options and tap on the ON/OFF slider on the top of the page.
yes but how can we disable it again?
Worked with Samsung Galaxy J1 but how do we disable again and make it not visible?
