Cannot activate xbox developer mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I have got the Developer mode activation app for my xbox one s, and it opens, gives me the code to input into the /xboxactivate page to then go onto the activation process.

    But when I try to access that link it does not load, and instead redirects me to the dashboard. The dashboard is also very broken, for example: I go onto my preferences by clicking preferences, and it just reloads the page and goes back to what I was redirected too. 

    I cannot activate my xbox and I would be grateful for any help

  • Hi Clutch_k1ck,

    >>But when I try to access that link it does not load, and instead redirects me to the dashboard.

    This developer.microsoft.com/xboxactivate should indeed redirect to the dashboard. After logging into the dashboard with a developer account, it shows the page for entering activation code.

    For more details about how to activate Xbox One Developer Mode, you could refer to the steps described in this document: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/xbox-apps/devkit-activation#activate-developer-mode-on-your-retail-xbox-one-console

  • It redirects me to the dashboard and still does nothing.

    My xbox one s is on and waiting for the code to be used, but it just redirects me to the dashboard and stopps completely. No sign of any movement

  • Hi Clutch_k1ck,

    Do you mean the page for entering activation code in the Dev Center Dashboard didn't show after you logged in with your developer account?

    If so, you might try with another browser to log into the Dev Center Dashboard. If the issue persists , you could open a support ticket to get this specific issue reviewed.

  • I have the same behavior on a non -S model,  tried multiple browsers.

  • I get the same issue. developer.microsoft.com/xboxactivate just opens the partner portal.  Xbox has shown the code.

  • i am having this issue as well, i have been trying to register for a dev account, but the "get started" link just redirects me to the aforementioned dashboard, where the link to register, and the actual page, is broken.

  • Same issue here

    edit: resolved it - in developer portal, click on settings icon at top right- developer settings, dev devices, xbox one development consoles and then enter activation code. 

    for some reason the https://aka.ms/activatexbox link isn't opening up the section automagically
