If you want to upgrade your HTC one via flash, or if you want to root it or to have the optimized connection to the PC, you will have to enable USB debugging mode. This option is disabled on all Android devices including HTC one, but you can enable it with a few simple steps. Once you do that, you’ll be able to run commands such as android debug bridge (adb) and fastboot from your PC. This simple guide shows how to enable USB debugging mode on HTC One.
How to enable USB debugging mode on HTC One
The first thing you will have to do is to enable developer settings. To do that, just follow a few simple steps listed below:
- Navigate to Settings and tap on About.
- Next, click on the Software Information and tap More. You will see “Build Number”. You will have to click on that option a few times and do it fast. Keep tapping on it until the message shows up on the screen letting you know that you have become a developer.
Once you do this, developer options will be enabled.
- Again, go to Settings and select Developer Options.
- Make sure that the developer options are activated.
- Scroll and find “USB debugging option”. Use the slider to enable this option.
That’s all! Now that you know how to enable USB debugging mode on HTC One, follow the steps and when you are done connect your device to your PC. Your computer will recognize your smartphone.
Keep in mind that in some cases (Depending on Android version) when you connect your HTC One to your PC for the first time, a message may show up – you will be asked if you allow your PC to connect to your phone, and just choose “Allow”.
