comment What's really 'third party applications'?
I guess in this context, "developer apps" stands for apps not installed from any "market" – but those you write yourself and test-install via the corresponding development frameworks. In the context of "signatures" (see my answer below): AFAIK those apps are signed with "development keys", so they again have a kind of "special signature". I must investigate deeper into this to tell the exact difference from a user's point of view, though.

OK, let's be a little "analytic". Try a logcat while forcing this error. With some luck it reveals the culprit in a way that makes it fixable. (see our logging tag-wiki in case you're unfamiliar with that). Then please edit your question with your findings. If you need to post a larger piece of log, you can link to a pastebin.

That's called "reverse tether". I've just added the corresponding tag to your question. Please check if other questions using it solve your issue.

comment Multi User Backup
Unfortunately it seems GeekRom has removed their Github account. It was part of AOSP in JB, but is no longer in the tree at least with Kitkat. On Github, you can find it with OptiPop – but again, last update 2 years ago.

comment Are my phone calls are still traceable?
If you want your calls and texts to be encrypted, you'll need to use specific apps for that – e.g. Redphone for calls and Wickr for SMS.

comment Help with enabling USB Debugging
As the OP already stated in his question: all developer options are grayed out – so obviously he doesn't need to "enable the Developer option manually" by tapping the build number.

comment Google Maps failed to save offline maps on Lollipop
According to your comment (remember, you always can and should edit your question to include additional details), and the fact it's a Nexus device (no external SD), the most likely reason is the "sdcard write patch" mentioned. You might check with them for a fix (e.g. how to revert that patch).
