Enabling Xbox One developer settings can brick your console
"We strongly advise consumers against changing these settings as it could result in their Xbox One becoming unusable," Microsoft says.
Enabling the Xbox One developer settings can brick your console, Microsoft has warned, after a video from GameTuts showed how a few button presses could turn the system into a "dev kit."
"Changing the settings in this menu is only intended for developers for Xbox One, and this alone does not turn the console into a development kit," Microsoft said in a statement provided to Engadget. "We strongly advise consumers against changing these settings as it could result in their Xbox One becoming unusable."
Those who have already enabled the developer settings on their Xbox One can revert by restoring factory defaults. This can be done by selecting "Restore Factory Defaults" in the settings menu.
Looking ahead, Microsoft's long-term goal is to officially enable every Xbox One console to be used as a development kit, though it is not clear when this will happen.
