Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
Enabling Devolper Options on any Android device is easy! Why would you want to?
For one you get a whole new setting category which is hidden normally . you can activate things like mock or fake location reporting. And features allowing you to diagnose things in your phone or tablet like wear on pixels and damage, too much time spent on a functions job or auto close any feature when you leave it. "BEWARE" unless you know something about these features do not use them as improper use can cause extra wear on your device. To activate Developer options go to the about device section in settings and where it shows the Android version with accessibility feature magnification gestures turned off so it won't keep enlarging the screen every 3 taps start tapping at a steady but fairly slow constant rate on the Android version info like Android 4.1 and after usually around 7 taps the screen should change to an animated feature of your version number if it is 4.4 you should get a k that is large and is spinning keep tapping at same rate until it changes from! A spinning g letter to an actual scene of its version like the spinning k will now show a kit kat bar type picture. Now turn unit off and restart it should now have a new category in settings called Devolper Options which you will need to turn on to use.On so!e device gp to the build number and do this if it is this way after 7 or so taps it will say you are one step away from activating Developer Options keep tapping until it says Developer Options now set. Now you can activate some pretty cool features for altering or trouble shooting functions on your device. Good luck and be very careful you should be a developer to try this
Send me some feed back on what you think at email@example.com please and extra caution don't use any features in the display section unless you know what you are doing. This will not brick your device and is not rooting but can change the efficiency somewhat thereby slowing down your device, or you may make your device run too hot or the improper use of these features could make it hard or confusing to use it and some could add unnecessary wear on it . but if you are sure try the settings and enjoy .
