Developer Menu has an extensive list of options which are quite useful from a developer’s point of view. However, it can prove troublesome for a regular Android user if messed with. So keeping this in mind, its kept hidden by default and needs to be enabled on every android device running on android version 4.2 or later.
If we enable the developer options on tribute HD, we can turn on USB Debugging. It’ll aid in connecting the Tribute HD in ADB mode. Even though we cannot unlock bootloader or flash TWRP via ADB, at least we can use it to enable LG Aristo Adoptable Storage.
So Let’s check out how to enable developer options and turn on USB Debugging –
