Here’s a really quick introduction on turning on debug mode for the Nexus Q.
- Micro AB USB cable (careful with that connector!)
- An Android device with the Nexus Q application installed
- You may need an Android tablet, see Troubleshooting below.
- On your Android device, turn on USB debugging in the device settings.
Set up the Nexus Q on your network by installing the Nexus Q application on an Android device. Start the application, and then select your Nexus Q device. Select Advanced. Under USB debugging, move to slider to ON. Go back to the previous screen. Plug on end of the USB cable into the Nexus Q and the other into your computer.
- Go to Settings, and then scroll down to Developer Options.
- Slide Developer options to ON.
- Check USB debugging.
- If you can’t see the USB debugging option in the Nexus Q application, You will need to turn on USB debugging in the Android device settings first (not the Q application, the main device settings control panel).
- I could only see this option on the Nexus 7 tablet, not on my Nexus Galaxy phone. The Nexus 7 had the USB debugging turn on in the main settings by default. Thanks to Ryan Warner for figuring this out.
