Most of the customization now requires USB debugging mode to be enabled on your Android devices. If you noticed, this feature is not enabled by default in Android 4.2 and onwards. In previous version of Android you just had to go to settings and under developer option was the option to enable USB debugging tool. But now in latest Android versions Google decided to hide the developer option, so that users with little knowledge of Android Operating Systems can’t break their devices.

There are many articles on how to enable USB Debugging Mode and Unhide Developer Options in Android devices, but most of them are too confusing.
