Connect a USB keyboard to the player and make sure you have completely off the Chromebox.
With the tip of a paper clip or pin, press the reset button.
Press the reset button while you press the start button.
The device will boot and will display an exclamation mark.
Press Ctrl + D.
Press again the reset button with the clip. The device will reboot and will display a red exclamation mark.
Press again Ctrl + D. The system will reset and begin the transition to Developer mode, which can take up to 10 minutes and will wipe all previous contents
When it’s rebooted, the red exclamation mark will appear again
