N21 replacement board verified mode loop

2017-10-30, 13:43 PM

I replaced a N21 board last week because the headphone jack was dead. Usually I replace the board and run the RMA shim to update the serial numbers and run the tests. This particular instance the motherboard ignored the RMA shim and booted right into ChromeOS. I hit ESC REFRESH POWER to powerwash the thing and force it to boot from the RMA shim. No luck. It just tells me I'm not in verified mode - reboots - and tells me developer mode has been disabled. If I try to power wash it will not register that I hit CTRL+D (even with usb keyboard). Any suggestions?
