Step #2 seems to be the key, and ignore any sort of screen flashes or such while you hold the buttons down.
Also, by the way, if you simply hold the volume up button down and press the power button normally, you will get a boot menu, which I also didn’t know about until today…
'Authorization': 'Basic ' + btoa(username+':'+password), but in the proxy script, that header had vanished.
