 +For Batocera 5.27 and earlier versions, you need to be starting from the **manufacturers bar** at the main system selection menu. When the code is entered successfully, you'll see the Batocera logo flash, indicating that EmulationStation is restarting. Also, beware if you previously swapped the A and B buttons in EmulationStation (SYSTEM SETTINGS -> DEVELOPER menu). You need to enter this cheat code pretty fast to get it accepted

 +If you are locked out, you can edit the configuration file ''/userdata/system/configs/emulationstation/es_settings.cfg'' and you will see a line like

 +
 +Just remove this line, and you'll get back to full mode next time you restart EmulationStation
