Unlike the SAMD21 and SAMD51, you cannot 'abuse' the reset button to have a double-click-reset for jumping into the bootloader.

Instead, we have a separate button for entering bootloader or factory reset mode

Holding down Button1 while clicking RESET will put the board into USB bootloader mode

Holding down both Button1 & Button2 while clicking RESET will put the board into OTA (over-the-air) bootloader mode
