Angry [HOW-TO][4.3]How to enable hidden Developer Options Menu

Hello everyone

Many users ask me how to enable the "Developer Options" in JB 4.3.


This menu is hidden by default. To enable it follow the these steps:
  • Settings >>>>>> About phone
  • Tap on the build number 7 times
  • Now you can enjoy the Developer Options menu


Best regards,

Doesn't it appy to basically every Android build starting with 4.1 and up, and is not really Xperia-specific?

I'm sorry, but on stock 4.1.2-based Xperia V firmware you have to do that as well.
