Android Developer Mode
Developer mode in Android… What is the Developer Mode? What is it’s featured? How it’s work? That’s a big suspense for many Andoird Users. They also use very upper to upper version’s Android device, but they don’t know what is it ?? How to enable this on your device?? Don’t tense, just go through my article, and you get your answer.
First of all, you have to know that “How to enable this features on your device?”
Many of my blog readers are asking me that, they have a little bit of knowledge of DEVELOPER MODE, but there confused that how to enable this on a device.
Actually, this is a secret feature of Android, and it’s hidden from all in the “Settings” tab. Naturally, it’s not visible to us, we have to enable this manually. Step by step has given below :
At first, go to Settings > then you show “About Device” option in System tab, open it > then you will show “Software information”, again open it > here you see the main option “ Build number”, click 7 times constantly on it.
|Settings > About|
|Software Information > Build Number (click Simultaneously)|
Then you will see that a Note visible on your screen, “Now you have a developer”. Now finally you have done this.
With this Developer mode, we can do many things that we have no idea before knowing this. In this article, I will write some of them which are commonly used.
USB Debugging :
USB Debugging is one of the common things that mostly used by Mobile Technician, for any purpose.
This is required for a variety of advanced tricks, including rooting an Android phone, unlocking it, installing a custom ROM, or even using a desktop program that captures screenshots of your Android device’s screen. You can also use ADB commands to push and pull files between your device and your computer or create and restore complete local backups of your Android device without rooting.
USB debugging can be a security concern, as it gives computers you plug your device into access to your phone. You could plug your device into a malicious USB charging port, which would try to compromise you. That’s why Android forces you to agree to a prompt every time you plug your device into a new computer with USB debugging enabled.
Set a Desktop Backup Password :
If you use the above ADB trick to create local backups of your Android device over USB, you can protect them with a password with the Set a desktop backup password option here. This password encrypts your backups to secure them, so you won’t be able to access them if you forget the password.
Rooting and installing other OSes :
One of the primary reasons for enabling Developer Options is to install ROMs of your own, like CyanogenMod or something else entirely. It’s not quite as easy as picking another OS from the Developer Options menu, but there’s plenty of help online to get you started.
The first step to rooting your phone is enabling developer Option, which lets you do all kinds of advanced tricks on your Android device, from installing more advanced apps (like task automators and file undeleters) to creating full backups of everything on your phone.
While enabling Developer Options on its own won’t void your device’s warranty, rooting it or installing another OS on top of it almost certainly will, so make sure you’re definitely up for the different challenges and freedoms the process brings before you take the plunge.
Disable or Speed Up Animations :
When you move between apps and screens in Android, you’re spending some of that time looking at animations and waiting for them to go away. You can disable these animations entirely by changing the Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale options here. If you like animations but just wish they were faster, you can speed them up.
On a fast phone or tablet, this can make switching between apps nearly instant. If you thought your Android phone was speedy before, just try disabling animations and you’ll be surprised how much faster it can seem.
Fake your device’s GPS location :
There might be times when you want your friends or the apps you’re using to think you’re somewhere you’re not, and Developer Options makes this possible. Go down the list of options in the menu, and tap Select mock location app to set up this GPS spoofing.
As will become obvious, you need a GPS spoofing app as well, but there are a number of free ones available including Fake GPS Location and Fake GPS Location Spoofer Free. Get one installed and launch it to set up the necessary permissions and configuration settings.
With that done you can return to Developer Options, select your app of choice, and start spoofing as you like. It’s helpful for apps that are locked to a specific part of the world, as well as for fooling your contacts into thinking you’ve suddenly become a globetrotter.
Stay Awake While Charging :
You can use Android’s Daydream Mode to display certain apps while charging your device. If you want to force Android to display a standard Android app that hasn’t been designed for Daydream Mode, you can enable the Stay awake option here. Android will keep your device’s screen on while charging and won’t turn it off.
It’s like Daydream Mode, but can support any app and allows users to interact with them.
Other this option, there are many unique features like
- Bluetooth HCI snoop log
- Picture color mode
- Multiprocess WebView
- Automatic system updates
- Bug report shortcut
- Cellular data active
- Force GPU rending and view updates
And many other options, I preferred to visit on your own device Developer to know about them.
