How to Enable Developer Mode on INMO Air2

INMO Air2 Developer Mode


inmo air2 developer mode tutorial

Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is a versatile command-line tool that allows you to communicate with your device. ADB commands help with various device operations, such as installing and debugging applications. This guide will show you how to use ADB to install Android Packages (APKs) on your INMO Air2 device. 

Warning: Due to the open-source nature of the Android ecosystem, using ADB to install third-party apps and performing any operations that alter the standard settings of the operating system may cause the device to freeze, overheat or experience bugs. INMO AR will not be held responsible for this. After ADB activated on the device, your INMO Air2 will not be covered under our 7 day no-questions-asked return policy.
