    Sounds a bit hampered, not to mention something you should really only do if you have a second xbox one to dedicate to it. Don't think I'd mess with it if I could only afford the one.

    EDIT: oh, fake, lol

    Yep, an official developer mode by Microsoft cause bricks.

    I need what you need to develop though, a sense of humor.

    Um, there was a "hack" like this a while ago that actually did cause bricks.


    @chaosrunner - This is official. You're confusing this with the "hack"/"mod" that came out a while back.

    Hack != Official developed by Microsoft. So no, an official developer mode by Microsoft would never put the console in a irreversible unbootable state ;)

    Yet it's easy to get confused with a headline like "Turn your Xbone into a devkit, for free, starting today!" with no indication that it's actually an official method. (The articles that showed off the hack/mod used a similar headline.)

    A much better headline would've been "Microsoft releases official app that turns your Xbone into a devkit." (It's clear and straight to the point.)
