As for the wheel trim, the Ethiopian crew tried it, and stated that it didn't work. We still don't know why.
Could be because they let the speed build up so much by not reducing power.
Perhaps they pulled the levers back without disconnecting AT , took their hands off the TLs to pull back on the yoke, but thrust levers then moved back to TOGA because AT was still connected.
Just a theory.
