How to Enable Debugging Mode your Android 4.3 Device
We recently had reviewed a wonderful application called Mobogenie that allows you to backup and restore your Android devices. Not only is Mobogenie a very capable desktop Manager but also comes in with plenty of nifty features. Some of them are the ability to download Ringtones, Mobile apps, Wallpapers as well as your favorite Youtube Videos, it would not be a surprise if Mobogenie finds a tight corner in your Windows PC and stays there for a very long time, given the features of the app as well as rather distinct lack of more such all in one desktop managers.
Mobogenie requires you to enable Debugging mode on your Android devices. But, before we tell you how to go about activating debugging mode on your Android device running 4.3, here is what Debugging mode exactly does:
USB Debugging Mode is a mode that can be enabled in Android after connecting the device directly to a computer with a USB cable. The primary function of this mode is to facilitate a connection between an Android device and a computer with Android SDK (software development kit). As the name might suggest, Android SDK is a software suite that’s designed to aid in the development of Android apps.
So, now we are clear with what USB Debugging is, we are set to enable it on our Android devices running Android 4.3. Very few devices run on Android 4.3 currently. The ones we can count on are Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus and the Google Edition of HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S IV. Here are the steps to enable USB Debugging on your Android phone:
Step 1: Go to the setting in your Android Smart phone running Android 4.3. You will find the icon in your App Drawer.
Step 2: Under Settings, look at the last option, it would be ‘About Phone’. Click that.
Step 3: Under About Phone, you will see ‘Build Number’. Click that about seven times. this will enable Developer Options on your device.
Step 4: Once you have developer options, come back to Settings and you will find Developer options just about ‘About Phone’.
Step 5: Select Developer options and you will see the option to ‘USB Debugging’. Simply check that and you are have enabled USB Debugging on your device.
You can now connect to Mobogenie with your Android Smartphone and backup your Android phone. Mobogenie can be downloaded from here
