I was having the same issue. However I've managed to activate dev mode through the hidden developer settings menu rather than 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

Here is the document about how to activate the Xbox dev mode: Xbox One Developer Mode activation. Are you following this to activate the dev mode? If it is, could you please tell me which step that you failed? Is it Step 4?

Mine xbox is the same situation. 10.0.19041.4162(OS version is rs_xbox_release_2008.200824-1730).

This is a urgent situation, it delays my work 2 days already.

Hello,

@Squarebananas-1190 's reply is the solution to this issue. It the same one as the solution I got from the team. If you are having the same issue, you could try @Squarebananas-1190 's solution.

Will the team fix this issue? Ideally, the menu should not be hidden while an Xbox is registered for development.

Seems this problem is solved now, but I don't think the documents are updated yet.

Late september 2020 a new app was released that's called "Xbox Dev Mode", and not "Dev Mode Activation".

I don't know if this app is intended to be the new app for activating developer mode, it doesn't say anywhere, but it seems to be. When using "Xbox Dev Mode" everything works as the "Dev Mode Activation" used to.

Kind regards
Øistein

This is the actual answer!

The new app has the newly released Consoles as an Icon and works!

Same thing for me. I also see now the new app (as @istein-9039 mentioned) in the store. I have an xbox one "all digital". Furtunately, the "hidden menu" solution made the trick!

I have to say I also had quite a few issues in activating the developer mode using the "older app", the istructions steps given in here seem not work anymore. Also, I had to pay (here in Germany) an €14 yearly fee to register me as developer, and not the one-time $20 as advertised.

Ok I had issues enabling dev mode for series x. I followed the instructions above but developer mode didn't show up. So two things:

One is that I was holding the buttons down as I pushed them. Just pushed each button one at a time and let it go.

The second thing is that I think I'm confused as to which are my bottom buttons and which are my top buttons. I pushed LT RT LB RB. Maybe I'm backwards but I was thinking that the buttons on the top would be the ones closest to the other buttons and the bottom ones would be the ones closer to the battery compartment.

Anyway, try both ways.

"T" in RT/LT means Trigger (like a gun's trigger).
"B" in RB/LB means Button (digital button).
