Description of Developer Options

Developer options gives you access to settings like:

• USB debugging: This is what allows your phone to communicate over the USB port on your computer via the Android Debug Bridge (ADB).

• Revoke USB debugging authorizations

• Take bug report: Grabs the current log files on your device

• Desktop backup password: This option forces a password on those backups, and they can't be restored without that password.

• Stay awake: Force the screen to stay awake while your phone is connected to a wall charger or your computer's USB port.

• Select runtime

• Enable Bluetooth HCI snoop log

• Process stats: Everything you ever needed to know about the running processes on your phone.

• Power menu bug reports: Puts an option in the menu you see when you press and hold the power key to collect and send a bug report (as seen above).

• Allow mock locations: This setting will let you manually write location information, making your phone think it is somewhere it really isn't.

• Select debug app: This setting lets you choose an application to debug. You don't really need to attach it to a debugger, but if you do it prevents error messages when paused on a breakpoint.

• Wait for debugger: This setting is greyed out unless you've set an app to debug. When set up and selected, it simply prevents the chosen application from starting until the debugger is attached.

• Verify apps over USB: Lets Google scan applications you installed via ADB for malicious behavior.

• Show touches: Select this to see a visual cue on the screen when and where a touch was registered.

• Pointer location: This setting places an information bar at the top of your screen telling you the screen coordinates of the last place the screen was touched.

• Show surface updates: Makes the edge of a "window" flash when its contents are updated.

• Show layout bounds: Marks the edges of all the elements in a dialog so you know where any touch will activate them.

• Force RTL layout direction: Forces screen orientation for right to left language support.

• Window animation scale: Sets the speed for window animation playback.

• Transition animation scale: Sets the speed for transition animation playback.

• Simulate secondary displays: This setting allows developers to simulate different screen sizes.

• Force GPU rendering: Forces applications to use hardware 2D rendering.

• Show GPU view updates: With this setting, any view that is drawn with the GPU hardware gets a red overlay.

• Show hardware layer updates: This setting will tell you when layers update.

• Debug GPU overdraw: Overdraw happens every time the application asks the system to draw something on top of something else.

• Force 4x MSAA: This setting forces multi-sample anti-aliasing (MSAA).

• Strict mode enabled: This setting flashes the screen when an application uses the main thread to perform long, intensive operations.

• Show CPU usage: Places a tiny window in the upper right of your screen with information about the CPU and how it is being used. A neat one to play with.

• Profile GPU rendering: This setting can either draw a graph on the screen, or write it to a file. The graph is a visual rendering of how hard the GPU is working. This is another really neat one to try.

• Enable OpenGL traces: This setting watches for OpenGL errors, and places them in the log file.

• Don't keep activities: This setting destroys any and every application as soon as you leave the main view.

• Background process limit: Allows a custom setting of how many process can run in the background at once.

• Show all ANRs: This setting makes every process show an "App Not Responding" dialog if it gets hung.

You can also be "granted" as a developer by clicking on the "build number" label 7 times.
