A quirk of the Advent Vega (also Tegra) that allows you to enter fastboot mode also applies on the 2X (Thanks Bumble-Bee for the tip!)

Basically, if you wipe the boot partition (e.g. 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5') then reboot, the device drops to fastboot.

Handy testing feature for devs. :D
