  3. Press the Build Number box several times (seven times) until a message appears "You are now a developer". You have just activated the developer mode on Android.
  4. Return to the main settings menu, you will then see a new sub-menu: "Options for developers" or "Development options" depending on the manufacturer customization.
  5.  In the developer options, enable "USB Debugging".
  6. Disable all the automatic screen locking functions.
  7. Connect the Android terminal on USB.
  8. Connect the Android terminal to the same WiFi network as the one to which you are connecting Agilitest.
