How can I remove the default Google Account on my phone?

I tried different methods of changing the Google account on my Nexus S, all failed. Did someone manage to do this, without a factory reset?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

As noted in the dupe (and Ryan's answer below), you normally have to do a factory reset. EricShaefer's clever answer to the dupe looks like it might work, though, worth a try. – Matthew Read Aug 12 '11 at 20:24

AFAIK, you cannot change the "default" user account. This is the account tied to the market and other things by default. The only way to change it, is doing a factory reset.
