Microsoft warns Xbox One owners about backwards compatibility prank
Microsoft has issued out a warning to their Xbox One customers that a prank post claiming to enable backwards compatibility for XBOX360 games are indeed false. There has been news circulating the internet that after following certain instructions that it would allow you to play XBOX360 games on your Xbox One, but instead it offers a much larger risk of potentially damaging your new console instead.
To be clear there is no way to make your Xbox One backwards compatible & performing steps to attempt this could make your console inoperable

Most likely this sequence of instructions are the same ones which enables Xbox One consoles to access the developer debug settings instead, of which can make the console unresponsive or unusable if treated incorrectly.
