    [1.] Download the .appx file here
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/bg9dd6q3ompk6b7/VBA10_1.22.197.0_Test.rar


    It will come in a .zip so use winrar or a similar program to extract the files

    [2.] Once done head over to your Xbox One console and restart it into developer mode.

    [3.] Click on "Settings" you will see a menu that looks like this

    Apologies for the low quality my phone isnt the best for pictures


    Make sure and Tick the option that says "Enable Xbox Device Portal"
    In addition you make sure "Require authentication to access Xbox Device Portal" is checked you will want to set up a username and a password.

    [4.] Once finished go back to Dev Home and make note of your Xbox IP Address along with the port number listed at the bottom right corner it will look something like 192.168.37.8:11224 (Yours may be different) Open up your web browser and type in https:// followed by your IP and port number so for example https://192.168.37.8:11224 alternatively you can also enter https://XboxOne:11224 for example. Once you log in you may receive a warning about the security certificate. Go ahead and proceed anyways.

    [5.] You will now be greeted with a menu that looks like this
    [​IMG]

    From Here it's rather simple just click Add and choose file

    [​IMG]
    You will then select the vba10.appx file that you extracted earlier.

    IMORTANT : Make sure that you add in all of the dependencies when prompted. They are listed in the Dependencies x64 folder in the zip you extracted earlier. You need the dependencies otherwise it will not work.

    VBA10 will now deploy and install to your Xbox One

    [​IMG]

    If for any reason you experience any issues just uninstall and reinstall VBA10 and it will work.

    Credit goes to Illidanx the developer of VBA10 for making this possible.

    Games that do not work

    Yes myself along with other devs are working on it. I've already gotten VBA10 as well as PPSSPP working on Xbox One Dev mode. JaralStudio the developer behind the PDFViewer Emulators that got pulled recently, he is working on PSX at the moment and from what I hear he will be releasing the source code soon so anyone can run it in dev mode as well.

    This kind of stuff will really shine when Scorpio gets released.

    I can honestly see PS2 Emulation being a thing with Scorpio. I've read up on the specs and it's damn impressive

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    No Problem, I'm currently working on trying to create a .appx bundle package so people can very easily sideload the PSP Emulator on to their Xbox One without having to go through the complex process of compiling it from source code. More on that soon

    I kinda wish there'd be a Xbox (not 360 or One) emulator. My original xbox broke down long ago and I'd still like to play Jet Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, Jade Empire, and Fable.

    It would be nice, to be honest I don't understand why out of all the emulators that currently exist the original xbox never seemed to receive a proper emulator. At least not to my knowledge

    There really isn't too many games on it, but the noteworthy ones are definitely worthwhile.

    I cannot confirm this 100% but it would seem to me as if Microsoft Intentionally modified the Developer Mode OS to disable Read Write Access to the Internal Storage device. As I can no longer see my files that were there nor copy them to the Internal Drive. What's funny is that File Explorer works fine in retail mode but it no longer functions in developer mode assumedly in an effort to make it more difficult for people trying to use emulation software. Also worth noting Mircrosoft broke VBA10 as it now launches but it crashes moments later. However the PSP Emulator at the time of writing does still work. I'll be spending the next few days trying to find a fix....

    UPDATE: This was just a weird issue on my end. It's resolved and I was totally wrong, Read Write Access is still there. Copying over files to the HDD still works. As i said PPSSPP Still works fine and I am working on getting VBA10 up and running again


    UPDATE #2 It's fixed. All I had to do was just uninstall VBA10 and reinstall it.
    It's now working fine

    Why are all these emulators finding their way to the xbone all of a sudden?

    Xbox One suppourts UWP. These Emulators are all UWP. So in a sense they were already available

    How well do these emus run on the XO?
    I'm mostly interested in N64 emulation.

    ppsspp has the source code but it doesn't have the modern UWP user interface. Don't know if it can pass the store auto-cert procs.
    On the other hand, vba10 works quite handy.
    Other than some gamepad bugs on Xbox One(like adding and select the rom, switch back to mouse mode might work, but making the anologue control in the game is annoying), the game is totally playable which thanks to Illidanx.

    Wow, I'm surprised with the amount of good, working emulators on the xbone. Even though I don't own one myself, I have family members that do, and they would really appreciate it

    the cursor keeps moving around the screen and halts the games occasionally. It makes the gameplay very annoying.
