Holding down the Home/Swap button isn't a required step, it just makes
the timing a little easier by forcing the tablet into flashing mode.
You can certainly flash without holding it down, you just have to be a
little more deft in your execution.

It's easier to tell people to just hold down Home/Swap than try to
explain the technique without it, or hope they get lucky.
