Notes on BLU Dash X2 boot modes. Unless otherwise stated, hold volume button(s) as indicated, press power button 5 seconds and release, still holding volume button(s) for another 5 seconds, then release.

Volume up + power: Recovery mode, sometimes, Meta mode other times. If recovery, use volume down to scroll, volume up to select.

Volume down + power: Factory mode. Volume up and down scrolls, power button does nothing at all, and soft Home button at bottom right selects the highlighted option.

Volume up and down + power: you get black-on-white BLU startup screen but with "=> META MODE" at bottom left. Only thing I could figure out from that was to hold power button for 10 seconds to turn it off.

No luck getting fastboot mode yet today, though I have in the past. Somehow.
