The developer options allow you to quickly access ADB settings, USB debugging, animation scales, and various monitoring tools for your device. You may need it sometime later.
However, in Moto X, developer options are hidden. It means you cannot find it by default. This is the default behavior of Jelly Bean 4.2. So, do not blame Motorola. It is its parent (Google) who made the decision.
To enable Developer options, you may follow the following steps
- Touch Settings
- Touch About phone
- Touch the Build number field 7 times
You will begin seeing a message (shown above) as you approach the 7 touches.
Touch the back arrow once complete, and Developer options will now appear under Settings.
