That never occurred to me, I'd assumed that hitting 2 would just select the displayed BE so no point doing that because it was already selected. And, yes, it does indeed cycle through all the available BEs

The new functionality certainly isn't intuitive and at least needs some sort of note on the boot screen but I prefer the previous method, in particular the new method will be tedious if  you have a lot of BEs and want to go to the previous one in the list instead of the next.
