To enable the developer options settings in CyanogenMod 10 you need to do something quite obscure:
Go to Settings -> About Phone -> click “Build Number” six times in a row.
This information is available elsewhere, including where I found it, but hopefully reposting here will make it easier to find.

Thank you so very much. Been looking for that.

I am about to reflash my ROM and look for another version with USB debugging. It is a blessing in disguise to have a serious look on your post to solve my problem. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. I owe you
Cheers mate, I was gonna jump on my phone. You are it’s saviour.
Can we revert this?
@Lak: Yes! Go to Settings->Developer Options, and top right change the “on” toggle to “off”. Afterwards, the developer options will no longer be visible in the Settings menu.
@Sonny Aguilar, @muzashi1963: Glad to be of service 🙂
Good work mate. I didn’t realise it was that well hidden.
Excellent – saved me tearing my hair out/smashing phone etc. 😉
Thank you very much
Thank you so much, I’ve spent ages searching for this!
When I tap “About Phone” it says “unfortunately settings has stopped” & goes back to home screen.
Sounds like a bug – I’m not sure if its related to trebuchet (cyanogen’s launcher) – you could try clearing the local data associated with trebuchet in settings-> apps-> all -> trebuchet -> clear data. You shouldn’t lose any settings or anything important by doing that
thanks a lot….. u saved me….
