How To Turn ON Developer Options In Any Android Phone Or Tablet

So guys, In this article im going to show you how you can enable or disable “Developer Options” in any of your android devices. So lets get started,

Developer Options on Gingerbread (Android 2.3):

Developer Options on JB (Android 4.1):

How to Enable Developers Options on Android 4.2
The developer options lie at the core of Android development and so they cannot be removed as long as Android is an open source environment. The only change Android 4.2 brings in connection to these useful options is that now they are hidden by default  and you will have to make it available by doing some finger exercise.
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 > 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” or “ 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 only if you want 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.

Hiding Developer Options on Android:
Once activated, the Developer Options on devices with Android 4.2/4.3 or above remain visible. You will not find a single option that lets you revert back to the state when it was hidden. However, there is still a way to hide Developer Options on Android device. To do this, you will have to boot your device into Recovery Mode and perform a “data/factory reset”.
