    I figured out how to work the boot menu and get to android recovery.

    Hold power + vol down till you see fastboot

    Vol down scrolls through the possible options

    Vol up selects that option

    One of the options is android recovery but there isn't any recovery file stock. What's new Motorola.

    Really wish they hadn't removed the physical camera button, if only for navigation in Recovery...I can see me repeatedly selecting an item when I really just want to scroll up. :)

    Nice find.

    up/down at the same time while powering on also does the same thing as selecting "RSD" in the menu you found

    Dx2 bootloader?

    up doesn't select anything in recovery, power button does... up only selects it in the new little boot menu thing - unless that's what you mean by recovery :)... whatever it might be called

    Does this mean the phone is as unlocked as the D1 is ? (sorry if this is a dumb question).

    I'm glad word is spreading about our find. I figured this out too, right after getting my X2 on 20 May. If we keep this spreading around, I am hopeful that a dev will see it and exploit it. To find all it's secrets and hopefully we will get the Golden Egg we all want.

    MICHO and I are hoping that with the similarities with the D1, and XOOM with fast boot that it is either unlocked or will be able to be unlocked with all the braniacs around. This post here we are trying to keep for actual findings to keep the speculation down so it only has pertinent info.
    Dx2 bootloader?

    And as a side note, as you will see from this post, that they are trying to do the same thing with the TBolt. And with sililar characteristics as our X2's

    And here is another post where we would be able to speculate all we want like wise here.
    boot into stock recovery

    Like I said earlier, we should keep this info circulsting everywhere.

    You and I should start our own business for breaking into our devices. Lol.
