Some brief insights on correcting issues and not messing with dev settings on your console.
Why did reading this title make me want a bowl of Fruit Loops? On topic; I don't understand why they just wouldn't lock down access to it with a software update, then unlock it once people have the necessary credential to use it.
It is not supposed to be open to public, which makes me wonder why they have it opened in the first place.
because it will eventually be open to the public, haven't you heard that every Xbox One is a DEV kit?
It should be in a boot menu not in the settings for a regular kid to go changing stuff and brick the console.....SMH
@whoyouwit04 I know that. But since it is not ready it should not be open to the general public. As the developer said, it could mess up the Xbox One.
I love those memes, when they are original, not copied a 1000 times, and the person who submits it last time still thinks it is funny.... Be original bawse... Edit, @ blackdeath, people here rarely read the article, if it says Xbox, they instinctively say something stupid too....
@whoyouwit04 "because it will eventually be open to the public" Not completely you still need to register at ID@Xbox for access because giving just anyone that kind of access is not wise.
@whoyouwit04 Is this proof enough to make you realize that that is a bad idea?
It is not intended to be open to public, so there is an expectation that kids don't go in and start trying out codes. I think the boot loop is actually a bug.
@nukeitall You dont control these things with expectations. You dont put potentially console-frying-level settings next to the "calibrate controller" setting and expect that "kids" simply restrain themselves from clicking them.. i mean... For those, there are special menus, you, know, like the one in Windows???....the OS that is there somewhere - is some capacity?
All this telling people not to mess with this and yet people still will and brick their consoles AND than blame Microsoft lol.
why then is it open?Microsoft is difficult to understand at times
It's not open. He unlocked it.
the fact that you've told people not to do it,the masses will do the opposite thing out of sheer curiosity
lets be clear here, 1) its a Developer that told people not to do it and not MS 2)he was only said so as advice when it was posted to reddit so that they don't mess up their consoles this certainly wasn't a message to everyone
Have to agree, this isn't MS telling the world not to do this but rather a dev posting to Reddit in response to a post their about accessing the dev side.
I just cannot fathom how people can mess with their very expensive consoles even if they "think" they know what they are doing. Hackers are a different crowd, they buy them to mess with and know the risks! That goes for any console Ps4 and XBone.
Starting to sound like OtherOS on the PS3: MS has practically invited users to experiment with their consoles, more PC savvy users are doing exactly that which will likely lead to abuse and piracy, which will only lead MS to remove the minor but otherwise majorly advertised feature.
They'll leave it alone for now, if only to sell more consoles by banning those who abuse it. Now if it starts affecting software sales....that's a whole different beast.
Another act of tyranny. This is another reason to boycott XBox Live and XBox One. Developers are now taking away our human rights, freedom and choice to adjust settings in games that we own.
Microsoft arrogance and tyranny continues despite their back down on their hard line anti-consumer policies. Microsoft developers had to back down on their digital only games for XBox One, XBox One online once every 24 hours and the games you bought were not technically your own games. You could not resell or lend your games to family or friends.
It shouldn't be that easy to unlock in the first place. There should be some end to end authentication that would prevent that. Gateway MT6706 2008
Wonder if this will lead to early hacking of xboneeighty
