How to get the "Developer options" and "Performance" menus in the new CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean)

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:
