    It should give you the charge only option when you plug it in to usb... or pull down the usb notification and select there when you are plugged in...

    Nevermind, I got it! I'm rooted baby!

    Yeah I did. The problem was that I changed it to charge only after it was plugged in, after I already had it on usb debugging so I unlicked it, then reclicked it and it worked.
