    Don't do this on your xb1

    ✖I'm sure none of the regulars here would but I'm just throwing it out there. I think they should take that out next fw update. I'm sure some people will fall for it.

    Xbox One owners warned to avoid 'backwards compatibility' prank that bricks*consoles

    By*Tom Warren*12.07.2013

    Every Xbox One console is*a developer unit,*but an option to enable the dev kit mode is being used to prank gamers this week. An image (embedded below) has been making the rounds on forums and social networking sites promising Xbox 360 backwards compatibility through six steps on an Xbox One console. Instead of providing any type of backwards compatibility, the steps will render an Xbox One useless in a constant reboot cycle, effectively bricking the console.

    Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (Major Nelson)*took to Twitteron Friday to warn gamers to avoid the trick and reaffirm that there’s no backwards compatibility on the Xbox One. While it's surprising to see Microsoft leave such a powerful menu exposed in a consumer console, it's not the type of setting you'll easily stumble upon. It’s not clear how many have fallen for the trick, but given one British teenager*paid £450 ($735) for a picture of an Xbox One*on eBay earlier this week we wouldn’t be surprised if some are gullible enough to try the steps.

    Wow.

    I can see some people blaming MS for this (their own gullibility). Hope it's made harder to get to or something in a FW update.

    I don't blame people getting excited though, but yeah, Google first before you do anything like this.

    The next update will make this official, and make your Xbox One water proof.
