After trying all other suggestions I could still not get into the boot menu. Only flickering. The battery-cable was not loose, but the battery was probably completely empty.

Now you should get into the boot menu if you press the volume down quickly enough. If you weren't fast enough, you have to disconnect and wait a few more minutes before trying again.
