The state of dev doesn't matter.  Restore your backup as you normally would on a different server.  Change the dbname and start it up.  It will be in archive log mode since prod is.  Just turn that off.

There are many papers out there on how to restore a backup the a different server and change the name.

The one you chose depends on how you backed up.
