Turn on Developer Options on HTC One running 4.2.2 or above

This is an android thing to begin with, before you start complaining how htc have changed things.

Edit: it’s visible if you just have updated your One, but haven’t done an factory restore.  Or least it was at mine, but after a factory restore it was not visible.

This way work for all htc phones having 4.2 or above, from One X to One with 4.4.2

Developer options
Under Settings are now hidden, you enable it by going to Settings > About > Software information > More.. where you touch Build number 7 times. Which will give you a count down, and then say “you’re now a developer”. And Developer Options are back!

Ok, that’s all good. But, how do I disable it again? To hide it again.
Of course I’ve covered that as well. Read more HERE

    Its displaying ‘Now you are a developer’, how to go back to normal now..??

    • just turn off Developer options inside it, you have a ON/OFF there. But, it will still be visible under Settings. And will stay that way until you do a factory reset. It doesn’t do ANYTHING unless you tell it to..

    If i turn off animations in developer options but then turn off Developer, i take that it just voids turning off animations yeah. They are only disabled as long as D.O are switched on?

    • Yeah, if you turn OFF Developer Options: all changes you made inside there gets turned OFF. If you want to use options from inside Dev Options you need to have it ON

      • Jay Gabriel

        Well the question is how do you turn off the developer mode???

        • with the ON/OFF button inside Dev options. But, it will still be visible under Settings. And will stay that way until you do a factory reset. It doesn’t do ANYTHING unless you tell it to..
