Default [Q] Moto G bootloader menu options

Hi,

Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere, but I couldn't find any topic about this.

Here goes : what's the meaning of the various options in the bootloader menu ?

I guess "Normal Powerup" boots the phone and "Recovery" gets you… well, to the recovery

Does "Factory" perform a factory reset?

What about "Switch console", "Barcodes" and "BP Tools". What do they do?

Thx

Barcodes actually just displays Barcodes of the phone IMEI, serial number and model on the screen.
BP tools boots up the phone and gives you access to device testing tools. An app called CQATest will appear on your app drawer.

Switch console - No idea on this one

Do you know what "BP" stands for in "BP tools" ?

No idea on that...
As I said the only noticeable difference is the hardware test app.
Test it yourself, it won't harm you device and it doesn't change anything related to warranty
