If you wish to use certain apps or developer tools with your LG Nexus 5X, you will need to enable USB Debugging on the device so that you can use it with developer tools such as the Android SDK. Here’s where to find the setting.
- Open “Settings“.
- Select “About phone“.
- Tap “Build number” repetitively until it says “You are now a developer“.
- Tap the “Back” button, and you should now have a “Developer options” selection under your settings. Select it.
- Ensure the switch at the top is set to “On“, then check the “USB debugging” check box to enable it.
- Select “OK” to confirm your selection.
You have finished the steps for enabling USB debugging on the Nexus 5X. For security purposes, you may want to disable this setting when you are finished with development or the app that requires this setting.
