Part 1. How to Connect Android to PC in USB Mode
The procedure above is a normal connection between Android device and PC. If there is anything abnormal during your operation, you can try the tips in part 4. Please note, there is still one more step before the transfer and recovery tool can recognize your device. Just follow the steps in part 2 and 3 to proceed.
Part 2. Enable USB Debugging on Different Android OS Version
Only when USB debugging is turned on, can Android phone be recognized by development tools. The primary function of this mode is to facilitate a connection between an Android device and a computer with Android SDK (Software Development Kit). Phones running on different versions of Android OS have different ways to enable USB debugging mode. Please check the Android version of your phone first: Settings > About Phone > Android version.
Detailed Steps on How to Enable USB Debugging on Different Android Versions: A. For Android 4.2 and above versions:
Go to Settings > About Phone > navigate to Build Number > tap Build Number for seven times. Afterwards, a message will appear informing that you are now a developer.
Back to Settings > Developer Options > tick on USB debugging > tap OK to allow USB debugging.
B. For Android 4.1 and 4.0:
Go to Settings > Developer Options > enable it > USB debugging > allow USB debugging.
C. For Android 2.3 and previous versions:
Go to Settings > Applications > Development > tick on USB debugging. It’s all.
Part 3. Enable USB Debugging on Android with Broken Screen
Once USB debugging is been enabled, the development tool should recognize your Android device. What if your phone screen is broken or cracked? Is it possible to enable USB debugging with broken screen? Don’t worry, you can buy an OTG Adapter to connect your phone and USB mouse, then use the mouse to make actions on the phone to enable USB debugging.
