Boot to Recovery displayed as "Factory Data Reset"?

    If you go into Developer options and turn on Advanced Reboot (which is extremely convenient!).

    Then hold down the power button, select Reboot, Recovery.

    The phone then displays the message "Factory Data Reset, please wait..."

    This scared the crap out of me the first time I saw it! It doesn't actually do a reset, it just reboots into Recovery as it should. But the wrong message being displayed is surely a bug.

    Has anybody else noticed this?

    I just unlocked my bootloader and enabled advanced reboot and there I go, happy and joyous, and select Reboot=>Recovery, and it said Factory Reset. I held my breath and to my dear life which seemed to escape this mortal encasing of a body and it was only when the phone rebooted, unscathed from the fire of hell, did I heave a sigh of relief.

    TL;DR - It wasn't fun.

    Good to know though. When this happened to me the first time I quickly forced a cold shutdown to prevent it from going any further.

    I just remembered now I did almost freak out when I saw that but I calmed down when I realised that I'm ready for losing data since I tend to get flash happy sometimes and always back up all of my stuff just in case :p
