  1. Hi! There is no developer menu on my Nexus7. How is it possible..? I am depressed about this, really.. 🙁 Not to mention I couldn’t able to update it to A4.2…

  2. i appalled that google has updated it to 4.2! I brought it with version 4.1… or I’m out of mind..?
    But still, there is no developer option..

    From the latest update, there is the multiple starting screen..

  3. one thing, there WAS developer options before I clearly remember, and my antivirus software reminded me that anti debuggig mode is a threat, but it has no reason now to say that

  4. Doesn’t work for me. I tapped 7 times, got the “You are now a developer” message but the developer options menu item doesn’t appear under settings…
