The device mode can be changed by the user, but remote access to the device is not enough to change it. After changing the device-mode, you need to confirm it, by pressing a button on the device itself, or perform a "cold reboot" - that is, unplug the power:.

Code Block
[admin@MikroTik] > system/device-mode/update mode=home 
  update: please activate by turning power off or pressing reset or mode button 
          in 5m00s
-- [Q quit|D dump|C-z pause]


To exit the flagged state, you must perform the command "/system/device-mode/update flagged=no". The system will ask to either press a button, or issue a hard reboot (cut power physically or do a hard reboot of the virtual machine). 

Important! Although the system has disabled any malicious looking rules, which triggered the flagged state, it is crucial to inspect all of your configuration for other unknown things, before exiting the flagged state. If your system has been flagged, assume that your system has been compromised and do a full audit of all settings before re-enabling the system for use. After completing the audit, change all the system passwords and upgrade to the latest RouterOS version.
