For instance, if it is a phone by Xiaomi, it might have MIUI and probably it might be written like MIUI Global 11.0.2. Oppo mostly uses Color OS interface in its Smartphones.
  4. After you found the UI, tap on it for many times. The system will give you responses saying you’re 4 steps from being a developer, tap more and you’re 3 steps from being a developer, and so on.

After enough taps on UI, you’re now a developer.
