This is something you need to do at the desktop side. Connect your
device to your desktop with USB cable and use flasher to disable this

There are couple of wiki pages telling about flasher:

You might want to try also "/path/to/flasher --help" and when running
"/path/to/flasher-2.0 --set-rd-flags" without those actual flags you
will get list of possible flags.

can confirm that.
