Yes, you can! When pressing the Power + Volume Down buttons simultaneously (or Home+Power), long-press the Power button and hit the Reboot option. While your device is booting up, you will see an option to enter “fast boot mode.” Select this option, and your phone will reboot as normal. You can now enable USB Debugging. Just follow the steps shown above.

How to check if my phone is connected

Once you’ve enabled USB Debugging on the device, connect it to your computer with a USB cable. If you’re using Windows, open up Device Manager and look under Ports (COM & LPT). You’ll see the Android ADB interface listed there. Using the proper command, you can test whether the device is connected.

How to check if my phone is recognized

You’ll want to have an Android Virtual Device (AVD) running. For Mac and Linux users: Tools > Android > AVD Manager. For Windows users: Vcredist_x64_20140223 . Once you have your AVD running, select the menu item (always) “Create new virtual device.”

The system will then ask where you want to create the new virtual device. Choose “Create new virtual device” from the Android SDKs folder. You’ll be taken to the AVD Manager, where you’ll see your newly created AVD. Select the menu item (always) “Run virtual device” and then select “Start.”
