I have aGSuite enrolled Chromebook (Google Pixelbook) that I no longer want to use with GSuite. Want to now enable Developer Mode and use as a personal device.
So I deprovisioned the device in GSuite Admin to remove the enterprise management and intended to reinstall ChromeOS from a recovery USB flash drive. That worked - the device shows as deprovisioned and I was able to reinstall ChromeOS from the USB flash drive.
However, when I try to enable developer mode (hold down ESC-Refresh while booting, then Ctrl+D) I’m told “The device owner has disabled Developer Mode for this device.”
Searching around, I found the setting I wanted to change is “Skip Boot Mode Check for Verified Access” in GSuite Admin (Device Management > Chrome > Device Settings). When I do that, it still doesn’t allow developer mode on the device.
I would have thought the reinstall of ChromeOS would clear this but the setting apparently persists, even on a deprovisioned device.
What am I missing?
