Questions:

In settings on my Nexus 4 device there isn’t any “USB debugging options” item. How do I find and turn on USB debugging mode on Nexus 4?

How to&Answers:

Solution

To see the option for USB debugging mode in Nexus 4 or Android 4.2 or higher OS, do the following:

  • Open up your device’s “Settings”. This can be done by pressing the
    Menu button while on your home screen and tapping “System settings”
  • Now scroll to the bottom and tap “About phone” or “About tablet”.
  • At the “About” screen, scroll to the bottom and tap on “Build number”
    seven times.

    • Make sure you tap seven times. If you see
      a “Not need, you are already a developer!” message pop up, then you know you have
      done it correctly.

Done! By tapping on “Build number” seven times, you have unlocked USB debugging mode on Android 4.2 and higher. You can now enable/disable it whenever you desire by going to
“Settings” -> “Developer Options” -> “Debugging” ->” USB debugging”.

CONCLUSION

That was easy. The best part is you only have to do the tap-build-number-seven-times once. After you do it once, USB debugging has been unlocked and you can enable or disable at your leisure. Please restart after done these steps.

Answer:

In case you enabled debugging mode on your phone and adb devices is not listing your device, it seems there is a problem with phone driver. You might not install the usb-driver of your phone or driver might be installed with problems (in windows check in system –> device manager).

In my case, I had the same problem with My HTC android usb device which installing drivers again, fixed my problems.

Open up your device’s “Settings”. This can be done by pressing the Menu button while on your home screen and tapping settings icon then scroll down to developer options and tap it then you will see on the top right a on off switch select on and then tap ok, thats it you all done.
