Can you roll start an E90?

I have the 6 speed manual transmission. I have roll started many cars in the past, and know how to do it properly, but it would not work in my E90 last night. Have any of you done it?

Because my battery was almost dead, I parked at the top of the parking lot at work. I tried three times to get the engine running through roll starting, but all I got was an ABS failure light. It must have something to do with the fob and the push button ignition, or because of the "foot on the brake" safety.

If you have roll started your E90, how did you do it?

(I got a jump start and drove straight to Advance Auto to get the new battery. Cable is on the way so I can reset the new battery code.)
