Already tried, not possible because it is linked to google history on the cloud and changing the parameter disables google sync.

Yes, Custom build of advanced chrome 69 was based on chrome 48, 52, 58 and 69, as far as I remember V8 was 52 and other parts where 48 (sandbox) while it had some 58 and 69 patches, it was some kind of beast that I do not recommend using it any more.
