Can I still remove enterprise enrollment in 2020?

I bought this Chromebook for school, in the contract it said that i would keep the Chromebook when I’m done with school or changed school. but here is the problem I did get too keep the Chromebook, but its is still enterprise enrolled :(.

So my question is if the removing the battery to circumvent the dev-mode block still works in 2020? That is enable dev-mode and then remove battery end plug in DC power so that it restarts.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It was *never* possible - the only thing you were able to do before the serial number was properly protected was change it to hide from it, but it’s still there when it goes back to the real serial number. This whole “one Chromebook per child” thing is new - back when I went to school, you didn’t get a laptop . Now everyone has to take the Chromebook because “equality”.

It’s tied to the serial number of the Chromebook, so essentially the answer is no. In your case, you may need to wait until you graduate before they remove it. The problem is the may be a technicality where it has to have an enterprise enrollment lock attached to it due to some school district policy. If I was in your position (especially since your parents probably paid for it!) I'd tell them to keep the Chromebook, not get a cent for it and pound sand unless they sell it to me without a BS enterprise lock and give me the ownership information in case it was needed.

At this point, you need to remember to hold them to their part of the deal if you bought it and cannot rely on your parents to do so. They do not understand the problem, and will leave you dead in the water especially if you make your own money and it's old.

As far as I know, this hasn’t worked for a while. I have the exact same Chromebook and have for years, and this doesn’t work. (I literally created the device page) If you take it to your schools IT, they can probably unenroll it. Depending on how your school/state works, it may be the school district that you need to contact. It seems odd that you bought it and it’s enterprise enrolled though.

  1. Press esc + refresh + power (note: refresh is the 4th key from the left on the Chromebook. It should be the swirly arrow.)
  2. Press ctrl + d.
  3. Press space (the spacebar) or on some Chromebooks enter (the enter key) Note: This will put you in developer mode, let your Chromebook load up everything and do NOT turn it off yourself. Your Chromebook will restart and then start initiating dev mode, that will put you off of the domain.

Eventually, if you use the entire storage, all of the old data will be overwritten and will cease to exist.

Try to get it in recovery mode, then do CTRL + D, it will put it in dev mode and wipe the system

(Welp here’s another 20 paragraph essay) Sadly it can’t be done, because the device’s serial number is the main culprit it’s possible to change and break the enterprise enrollment but it requires alot of heavy skills. Or you can CONTACT YOU’RE DISTRICT’S IT DEPARTMENT TO UNTIE THE CHROMEBOOK.

There could be a possible answer to it without contacting district if allowed maybe. This model tho unfortunately has a soldered storage drive in the motherboard itself. Meaning some cases you are able to unenroll with a removable storage device. Kinda like installing a new windows 10 kind of thing, for simple English terms.

Only solution I have found so far physically is purchase a motherboard swap but at that point if you gonna do that just buy a new laptop. Their really cheap chromebooks and I personally don’t like them.

I have tried all other solutions out there and the best way to fix is to throw it in trash, at the teachers face or email the school to unenroll if possible. I still think its possible maybe a special software to contact a chromebook to a computer to remove it eternally but I guess not. I’m still personally gonna look into this so I can watch twitch or youtube on it.

There is a way to unlock enterprise enrollment, it involves programming bios chip. You will need an access to shouldering iron, BIOS chip reader and BIOS chip programming software. First, remove BIOS chip from the motherboard, plug in it into the chip reading then use programming software to chance the serial number and also change enterprise enrollment from 1 to 0. Save the changes and resolver the BIOS chip back to the motherboard. Reboot and powerwash the Chromebook. It would work if everything is done right.

There is a way bro. You just gotta keep looking, be patient, and ignore the ones who tell you otherwise. I've unlocked phones laptops etc, forever and eventually a method is discovered or waiting to be found. Good luck bro

I logged into my own email by starting to use etc + restart + power (it will also delete your chromebook data be aware) then doing ctrl d, and after it says its blocked go back and when you enable the internet and it says enterprice enrollment , disable your internet and then in the bottom left it will say “use as personal chromebook” press that and it will ask for your internet, after enabling it will go to the sign in page with the enrollment, instead press other sign in, and enter your own mail. After that it will enroll it in that mail and your set to go in your own mail.
