Just letting everyone know a blog called Androidpit recently posted an article about some hidden settings in the Moto X and Moto G.

I can confirm that this method works to get these hidden settings but cannot say what exactly they do as I haven't had time to mess with them.

As always, these settings were not meant to be changed so don't blame me if stuff goes haywire.

Have fun!

The Settings

- Dim Screen
(Not quite sure what this does, maybe turns off auto dimming the screen?)

- On-device Logging
'Redirect all DIAG traffic to Memory Device on Phone'
(No clue)

- Stay on plugged
(Was checked already)

- USB Mass Storage

- USB Remote Wakeup
(No clue)

- SD Polling

- Dual Microphone
(Disabled on my VZN Moto X, grayed out)

- ANC
(No idea)

- Sensors

- Incall music

- IMS registration
(Disabled on my VZN Moto X, grayed out)

- Voice call auto answer
(5, 10, 15 seconds and disable)

- Fluence
(Options are 'off, dualmic, and quadmic', something to do with audio?)

- Data call go dormant
(Numeral input)

- Content adaptive backlight options
(Disabled on my VZN Moto X, grayed out)

- Picture Attributes
(Crashes the activity)

- OTG Mode
(None and peripheral)

- Data Usage
(You can set a numeral limit here)

- Data Monitor
(Default enabled)

- Gestures touch injection
(?)

- File Manager
(Looks like you can set the default File Manager?)

After reading into this some more, I've heard reports of this maybe not working on Moto Gs. Also these options don't seem to stick after reboots unfortunately.

Still interesting but not very useful.

Is your device rooted and write protection turned off? Might stick in that scenario

i'm curious if the monitor data selection has any bearing on how data usage is reported back to big red?

ANC = Active Noise Cancellation?

That's all I can think of really. It's right under the dual microphone setting, so it kind of makes sense, I guess.

Picture attributes - HSIC values is Hilbert-Schmidt Independence Criterion. IIRC, this has to do with image quality and noise. Could be of some use?

Mine crashes anytime I select that setting, but I'm not rooted. The camera on the Moto X has an accessory chip anyway that converts the RGBC to normalized RGGB/RGBG (Bayer) values.

Gotcha. Probably already configured in the kernel, which might be why it FC's when you select it while not rooted. Probably a different story on a custom kernel, however, but that's outside my scope.

Has anyone figured out what the first option, dim screen, means?

I have that one, one of the few that work, set. It adds a layer of dimmness graduation once the display time out is up.
But I have not even really tested it.
