Initially, the “Developer options” and “Performance” menus are hidden in CyanogenMod 10.1.

From the developer options menu, you can enable Usb debugging mode and more, which is handy if you are a developer, like me.

Suprisingly, you will have to perform a trick to see these two menu items!

Heres the trick:

  1. Go to Settings -> About phone
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the screen
  3. Press the “Build number” section 7 times.
  4. You will see a message, like pictured
    below, and the two menu items will become visible!

Below are screenshots of before, during and after the trick:
