Enabling Developer Options in Xiaomi Redmi and Mi3 for Android Development and USB Debugging

I hope many of us in India were able to grab the Xiaomi Mi3 or Redmi throught the flash sale on Flipkart. If you haven't, I would highly recommend to get this value for money phone.

Anyways, for me, the primary purpose of buying this phone was to use it for Android App development. To my surprise, I couldn't find the USB Debugging option in the Settings. I was utterly confused and so I did the obvious - Googled it.

It turns out, the Developer Options are hidden by default in the MIUI - the custom UI that comes installed on Xiaomi phones. And to show these hidden options is like finding an easter egg.

To enable the developer options follow the steps as below -
  1. Open Settings -> General Settings -> About Phone (Screenshot 1)
  2. Tap on the item "Android version" (Screenshot 2). As you tap on it, you will see a toast message saying "x more clicks from Developer Options"
  3. As you keep tapping, finally you will see a toast message confirming "You are now a developer" (Screenshot 3)
  4. Thats it. To confirm the Developer options are enabled, go back to General Settings and find Developer options under System settings group (Screenshot 4)
This phone have host of Developer options ranging from the basic of keeping phone awake to doing some basic profiling. I haven't checked out all of them yet, but hope to do so soon. Happy coding.

  3. Definitely different. We find this post is somewhat thrilling since Xiaomi has been performing really well as per response on Flipkart. Specifically what intrigued me most in this page is I want to buy Xiaomi Mi3 or RedMi Note. The readers here think I should wait for Redmi Note or not?.

  5. I've Found the problem ..
    i think all the phones manufactured by xiaomi
    on or after august 2014 have swapped
    the repeated click element

    so to get developer options working do the following
    settings->about phone

    now here youll see build number

    keep tapping build number repeatedly till the the developer options unlocked pop up is displayed
    now go back to settings and Voila!! developer options is there
    cheers !!

    1. Check your USB cable. I had a USB cable which came with my Power Bank. Those USB cables are able to charge the phones but now connect as an external device. If you are on Windows then it may be issue as well, try using a different OS.

  9. Hey,great tips.I have to add little bit.Where is the USB debugging mode on Xiaomi Redmi 1s?You won't discover it in the Settings whatsoever.Yes,it is concealed away.As an Android developer,you ought to think about it.As a matter of first importance,enable Developer options on your Redmi 1s.Keep an eye on USB Debugging ~Debug mode when USB is connected.OK to allow.That is it.Best wishes.@Jill Watkins.

  12. For Xiomi Mi3 if you are not able to tap Android Version try tapping MIUI Version and follow the same steps as above

    ReplyDelete
  13. In Ximo Redmi 2, we have to keep tapping on MIUI Version (Settings -> About Phone ) to get the Developer Options enabled.
    Once Developer Options enabled, if you tap again on MIUI version it says - No need, you are already a developer.

    After Developer Options enabled , next is to enable USB Debugging from :
    Settings -> Additional Settings -> Developer options -> USB debugging

    ReplyDelete
  14. Open Settings -> General Settings -> About Phone
    Scroll down to (Build number) and tap until developer options are unlocked.

  15. Amazing post,) I have to little add.Once turned on, you can tap Developer alternatives on the General Settings screen to get to a rundown of choices which deemed to be fundamentally helpful to the engineers Thanks all!!!

  41. The USB Debugging mode is important for clients who are occupied with accomplishing more than what is normally given to them by the company,as the debugging enables an extension association between the smartphone and the host computer or device that is attempting to get into the root file system and play with it.
