Default Secrets of Sonic The Hedgehog for iOS

Since the game's 're-release', I've found several secrets exclusive to this new version of the game. I decided to compile them in a list here, and I'll update the list as I discover more.
If you find something I've missed please reply below and I'll add it as well.


Significant Level Changes:
GHZ Act 1: Some extra rings in the middle of the double tubes, where there's a gap with a checkpoint post. Go up the gap with Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles.
GHZ Act 2: I've found nothing.
GHZ Act 3: The boss' swinging ball now rotates, and the boss has been tweaked for wider screens.
-----
MZ Act 1: A hidden invincibility box, found by using Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles. Go to the right most wall without going down, and fly/climb up the wall to find the box.
MZ Act 2: I've found nothing.
MZ Act 3: A brand new, hidden section/shortcut, found by using Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles. Go to the right most wall without going down, and fly/climb up the wall to find the entrance. The boss has also been tweaked for wider screens.
-----
SYZ Act 1: I've found nothing.
SYZ Act 2: A brand new, hidden section/shortcut, found by using Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles. Go most of the way through the level until you reach some floating platforms. On the last platform (or the one before) fly/glide to the right until you reach an entrance (or the wall with Knuckles, then climb up). This section has its own act end post.
SYZ Act 3: The boss area now has barriers on either side while fighting the boss.
-----
LZ Act 1: I've found nothing. Of course, there's the existing shortcut, which is easier to access using Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles.
LZ Act 2: I've found nothing.
LZ Act 3: I've found nothing.
-----
SLZ Act 1: A brand new, hidden section/shortcut, found by using Tails (& Sonic) or Knuckles. At the start of the level, go up and right until you hit a wall and a set of 'stair blocks' (just where the second bomb is). Fly/climb up the wall to find the entrance.
SLZ Act 2: I've found nothing.
SLZ Act 3: The boss has been slightly tweaked.
-----
SBZ Act 1: I've found nothing.
SBZ Act 2: I've found nothing.
SBZ Act 3: I've found nothing.
-----
FZ: I've found nothing.


Unlockables:
Tails (& Sonic): Complete the game with Sonic.
-----
Knuckles: Complete the game again collecting all Chaos Emeralds.


Level Select (and Debug Mode): Start 'No Save' mode with any character. During the SEGA screen quickly tap the letters in order 'S E G A' and if you were successful you'll hear a chime. Then on the start screen, use two fingers/thumbs to quickly slide up on the screen from the middle.
-----
Options:
Player:
00 = Sonic & Tails.
01 = Sonic.
02 = Tails.
03 = Knuckles.
---
Spindash:
On = Spindash on.
Off = Spindash off.
---
Gnd Spd Cap:
On = Ground speed limit on.
Off = Ground speed limit off.
---
Air Spd Cap:
On = Air speed limit on.
Off = Air speed limit off.
---
S1 Spikes:
On = Spikes don't have a 'cool down' so hitting spikes twice in quick concession kills you.
Off = Spikes have a 'cool down' like other enemies and traps.
---
Items:
S1 = Everything stays as it was in the original.
S2 = Some items are swapped with ones from Sonic 2. This affects items in Debug Mode.
S1 + S3 = Some items are swapped with ones from Sonic 3. This affects items in Debug Mode. Also Sonic uses his mid-air spin found in Sonic 3.
S2 + S3 = Some items are swapped with ones from Sonic 2 and Sonic 3. This affects items in Debug Mode. Also Sonic uses his mid-air spin found in Sonic 3.
---
Max Emeralds:
06 = Everything stays as it was in the original.
07 = An extra Chaos Emerald can be obtained and as a result there is one extra Special Stage. This allows Sonic to enter his Super form.
-----
Codes (Put into the Sound Test):
All Emeralds: 4 1 2 6
---
Debug Mode: 1 9 9 1 0 6 2 3 - Tap the score in-game to change to Debug mode, then use the -/+ to change object and jump to place the object.


Cheats/Easter Eggs/Extras:
Miles: Start 'No Save' mode with Tails or Sonic & Tails. During the SEGA screen quickly tap the letters in order 'A G E S' and if you we're successful you'll hear a chime. Tails is now called 'Miles'.
-----
Japanese Credits: Start 'No Save' mode with any character. During the SEGA screen quickly tap the letters in order 'A G E S' and if you were successful you'll hear a chime. You will briefly see a white screen with Japanese writing, that's translates to: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpost.php?p=2828304&postcount=201
-----
Carry Sonic: In a game mode with Sonic & Tails, hold up on the D-Pad. While doing this, jump high and in mid air jump again. Tails will briefly be able to carry you, so jump at Tails and he'll grab you. To control Tails, use the D-Pad to steer and the jump button to fly.
-----
Super Sonic: With the extra Chaos Emerald enabled from the Level Select screen, collect all 7 Emeralds. Then as Sonic jump and in mid-air jump again to become Super Sonic. Tails and Knuckles require use of the 'S' monitor, found in Debug Mode, to become Super.
-----
Knuckles and Tails: Start 'No Save' mode with Sonic and Tails selected. Wait for the title screen and the automatic Green Hill Zone playthrough tp pass, then you will be back to the SEGA screen. During the SEGA screen quickly tap the letters in order 'S E G A' and if you were successful you'll hear a chime. Then on the start screen, use two fingers/thumbs to quickly slide up on the screen from the middle. Finally, on the level select screen, change the character from '00' to '03'. Sinply select the level and start.
-----
Behind closed doors (barriers): Using Debug mode, during the transition between SBZ act 2 and act 3, move the character through the barrier. On the other side is Robotnik, who if you run into will hurt you and cause you to lose your rings. You can also jump on him and see his expression change. Running offscreen to the right will cause the game to progress to act 3, though it would be nicer if it skipped straight to FZ.


Any more? Please reply below and I'll add them.


Updates:
17/5/13: Extra zone info for earlier zones, correction to unlocking Knuckles and basic info on Debug mode and Level Select. I also added the other zones.
-----
18/5/13: Level Select and Debug mode added, solving the 'Unknown' mystery. All zones now have info on them.
-----
19/6/13: New Knuckles and Tails mode (2.0.1 only).
-----
28/6/13: Newly discovered Easter Egg.

Does anyone know what this does yet?

Good thread. As for the right most wall, is that at beginning of level? Don't have game on me so I can't check.

It's not far after the start. Just head right as much as possible, without going down to the 'lower layer', until you hit a wall. Then make your way up and you'll see the obvious entrance.

Updated with most of the zones done. I've just got Scrap Brain Zone (and Final Zone) to look through now. That should all be up by the morning.

Seeing as the unknown 'S E G A' cheat can only be done in 'No Save' mode, it might have something to do with completing the game in one sitting (with Sonic). If anyone wants to try it and reply with the results, that would be awesome.

The Level Select and Debug modes are definitely somewhere in the iOS release, so there must be a way to access them. On the Xperia Play you can use the original combinations on the start screen to unlock them, so perhaps we should start with the start screen? Again, if anyone wants to have a go, that would be great.

Finally, if I've made a mistake in the list please comment below so that it can be fixed. I know I made a mistake about unlocking Knuckles, and I only found that out by looking through the Sonic Retro forums. Any help like that would be great.

I've worked out Level Select and Debug mode. I've updated the main thread.

Is there a way to get back to the level select screen after the first time you activate it?
