As usual with new devices, it’s time to show you how to do all kinds of things. Like enabling Developer options on the HTC One M8. Ever since Android 4.2 was released, Google decided to hide the developer options. Which is actually a good thing. Because some people that may not know what they are doing may go into Developer Options and mess around with stuff which is not smart. But the good thing is it’s hidden in the same place on just about every smartphone or tablet. Making it easy to enable them again.
To get into Developer Options, simply jump into the Settings. Then you’re going to scroll down to the bottom and tap on ‘About’, next tap on ‘Software Information’. Now you’ll need to tap on ‘More’, which will give you a new menu. Now just tap on the build number 9 times and you’ll enable Developer options. Just head back out to the main settings menu, and you should see ‘Developer Options’ just above the ‘About’ option. So now you are able to enable USB Debugging, and so much more. In fact, you can even record your screen, which is pretty awesome as well.
It’s pretty much the same process on every device, but some manufacturers like to put the build number in different spots, like HTC did here. Which isn’t a big deal, but that’s why we’re here, to help everyone out. This is just the start of our many tutorials for the HTC One M8. As we want to be sure you get as much out of your device as you possibly can. After all it is a $650 smartphone, and you want to use every bit of it, right?
