Not able to activate Xbox Dev mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have downloaded the Dev Mode Activation App. followed the step as mentioned here. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/xbox-apps/devkit-activation. Entered the Activation code. but the in the next step i only see the below message. And my Xbox is up to date. there are no updates available

    Almost there

    You're almost ready for dvelopment , but first we need to update your Xbox. After the update, come back to this app and you'll be able to switch to developer mode.

    Thanks

  • Dev mode can be activated through the hidden developer settings menu instead of the dev mode activation app. To access the hidden menu go to Settings > System > Console Info > Press LB RB LT RT > Developer Settings > Developer Mode
