How to access iPod mini Diagnostic mode

Chris Breen has posted his instructions on how to access the iPod mini’s Diagnostic mode.

“The Diagnostic screen has changed since I mashed one of the beta units at Expo. To access that screen, reset the mini by pressing and holding Menu and the Select button for about six seconds. When you see the Apple logo, press and hold Previous and the Select button until you see a reversed Apple logo. Let go and you’ll see these entries:”

Hmmm….I can get into the diagnostic mode, but once I’m there the buttons do not work.  I can’t switch between functions or activate any of them.

Once you have made changes in the Diagnostic mode, how do you exit without resetting all the changes back to their default setting?
