Gamers, please be aware:
4chan’s /b/ forum — the same one that convinced lots of people to dunk their phones in water — has now promised new Xbox One users a way to “hack” their new gaming units so they will be backwards compatible.
INSTEAD, IT BRICKS THE CONSOLE, RENDERING IT INOPERABLE.
THERE IS NO WAY TO REVERSE IT.
IF YOU SEE THIS, PLEASE DO NOT DO IT:
A Tweet from Xbox Live’s programming director Larry Hryb:
To be clear there is no way to make your Xbox One backwards compatible & performing steps to attempt this could make your console inoperable
