3560X: recovery without pressing "mode button"

Does anyone know if there's a way for password recovery on 3560X without pressing "mode button"?
A way, for example, to reach ROMMON with some escape sequence as in routers?
  1. Rename the IOS filename extension from BIN to something else.
  2. Reboot the appliance and you'll be guaranteed to go into ROMmon.
  3. Rename the IOS filename extension back to BIN.
  4. Rename the config.text file.
  5. Boot the appliance.
  6. Continue with the password recovery procedure

  1. This assumes you already have a priv 15 access anyway... why would you need to password reset?
