    So was trying to do a hard reboot by holding the power for 10 seconds. By accident i was pushing down my volume down and power button and got a green menu not sure if anyone knows about this or not but just wanted to let people know.

    gives me 4 options

    1 - Continue the bootup.
    2 - Reboot into fastboot.
    3 - Turn off the device.
    4 - Barcode.

    I clicked the bar code option and saw the screen attached in the post. It had an BSN number (no idea what that is), IMEI, Product, and MFG Date

    So by the looks of this my device was built one month before I got it

    Just thought I would share with everyone else, not sure what else it does, not sure what fastboot does, I am guessing it like safemode for testing to make sure if an app is causing an issue

    I did some more playing and if you press up and power for 10 seconds you get a different BlackBerry Bootloader screen. I am guessing this is for if you need toflash the ROM,

    I also got an error screen when I rebooted after that. I just did a quick boot then a regular boot and it came back. again more hidden goodies

    What button do you press to make a selection in boot loader mode on the key one?
