What are the secret bootup shortcuts?

Hold FS5 and FS12 while powering Helix: Clears EVERYTHING

Hold FS5 and FS6 while powering Helix: Restores backdoor and user-selectable Global parameters to factory

Hold FS7 and FS8 while powering Helix: Restores presets and setlists to factory

Hold FS8 and FS9 while powering Helix: Restores presets, setlists, and IRs to factory

Hold FS9 and FS10 while powering Helix: Restores presets, setlists, IRs, and both backdoor and user-selectable Global parameters to factory

Hold FS10 and FS11 while powering Helix: Upgrades existing presets to latest format

Hold FS11 and FS12 while powering Helix: In the unlikely situation where Helix may freeze, clears only the current preset without affecting other setlists and presets

Hold FS6 and FS12 while powering Helix: In the unlikely situation where Helix may not boot, enters "Safe Mode," allowing for installing the newest firmware

 

 

Yes, but...

Hold FS1 while powering Helix: Bouncig Square and some text in small screens for... ¿?

Hold FS2 while powering Helix: RGB Values for....¿?

Hold FS4 while powering Helix: Some Test

Hold FS7 while powering Helix: Pod Hd2 Bon Testing ¿?

 

...More?

Hold all FS buttons, Exp toe switch, BYPASS, ACTION, AMP and SAVE while turning on your Helix floor unit and you'll look and feel like a Jackass

 

 

That combination causes Helix to boot up a preset that exactly nails the Message In A Bottle tone.

Lol I bet that was a little on the nose for one user on these forums.

 

 

I doubt he'll ever see that post, which is why I decided to throw it out there.  Trolls only pay attention to their own threads because they are only after attention.

Back when I was a tool of Guitar Center selling keyboards (you gotta' pay rent somehow).. there was a combination of button presses that would bring up a PONG game inside of the Kurzwiel K2XXX keyboards. Fun stuff.
