Enable Developer Option : Samsung Galaxy Grand Duos

Samsung recently released Android 4.2.2 update for the very famous Galaxy Grand Duos. I had my hands on this new OS looking for some new features and option. It did bring some small but good changes in the user interface. It also has a new way of representing the settings in a tabbed way. Also if you slide down notification centre with two fingers touching the screen, it will list all the quick access button for most of the settings like Smart Screen Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and others.

One thing which i found confusing was the Developer option.. I didn’t see it even after looking in the settings and all possible option in the settings menu. Now here is a little trick to enable Developer Option in the new Firmware. In the old firmware 4.1.2 it was present by default but in the new firmware you will need to enable developer option before you can use it options.

How to Enable Developer Option in Galaxy Grand Duos.

First head towards the settings. It is really easy.. though was tricky for me to find a way to enable developer option in the beginning. Once you are in the setting options in the new 4.2.2 Android version, select the More Tab and then navigate to the bottom most option About Device . Tap on that.

enable developer option

It will show you the screen shot given below. Navigate to the BottomMost option which says Build Number. Tap on that continuously for 6-9 times.

After you do this the developer option will automatically be enabled for you and from now on you can find the developer option in the settings menu.

  4. sir today i enabled the developer mode after reading your post. what is the use of the developer mode. ??? please explain

    • Developer mode as the name suggests is made for the developers of apps or other users who want to do some sort of experiments with their android device. May be testing a new app they build or testing apps which they already have to know what any app is using etc. Normally you won’t need the developer option. You may need it only when you are installing the firmware via ODIN or installing a custom ROM from your pc via USB cable, in that case whichever article you will be reading will tell you to enable USB debugging. This option is disabled by default and you can turn it on from the developer option.

      However you won’t need the developer option in day to day usage.
