Enable "Developer Mode" without Remote

I have lost my Roku remote (honestly I always used Roku app on my android phone as remote). Now I want to turn on developer mode and build some channels looks like I cannot turn on Developer Mode using remote app... I tried the sequence (Home 3x, Up 2x, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right) but looks like it doesn't work. Is there any other way to turn on developer mode with out remote?

Thanks

Re: Enable "Developer Mode" without Remote

Not answering your question, but you could get a cheap universal remote to replace your lost one. Some of the ones I've seen have included Roku codes. Also the old remotes work on newer units, in case you happen to have an older unit + remote stored away.

Re: Enable "Developer Mode" without Remote

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to enable Developer Mode without a physical remote. The network remotes can no longer input the 'secret code' sequences, going back several firmware releases. Nathan's advice is sound. You'll also probably want a hardware remote just in case your network settings ever change (e.g. for a new router) or you move the Roku to a new network, as without one you won't be able to re-connect the Roku. Sorry for the bad news.

Re: Enable "Developer Mode" without Remote

As long as your device is already in developer mode you don't have to have a physical remote.  This thread refers to putting your device into developer mode in the first place.
