If you just bought the new DJI Phantom 4, you will want to connect it to your Android smartphone or tablet. But if you don’t enable USB debugging and also change the connection mode, the DJI Go app may not recognize your Android device.
To do this, it’s very simple, go into Settings->About Phone or Settings->About Phone->Software info and tap on the “Build number” 5 times until it says, “You have enabled developer options”.
Next, tap the back button and you should have a new menu option called, “Developer option”. Tap on that and enable “USB Debugging”.
Next, plug a USB cable from your Phantom 4 controller to your Android device then open up DJI GO app. It should work but if it doesn’t, swipe down and change USB connection settings to “MTP” and that should do the trick.
No root is required to do this by the way, this works on any Android smartphone or tablet such as Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, Note 4, S6, S6 Edge, HTC 10, LG G5, etc…etc…
