Seems to be missing some steps
First hold power button until you see power off/restart option, dont release power button instead keep holding power button until you see 'rebooting...' message, then release button,wait until recovery is shown then use power button to step through the options. Once recovery is highlighted, press and hold power button again for about 3 seconds to select that option.

Now start tapping the power button 3-5 times fast.

simply pressing power at this stage will just reboot (continue). You need to either press and hold power for a beat or rapid press to get it to jump to next option.
