My chromebook has an admin on it, how do I remove it?

I’ve already beaten this horse into glue, which has since been dry for years. It can’t be done as it is based on the S/N of the Chromebook.

you are incorrect lol


@ssgnova Do you have some actual knowledge to contribute, or do you just like telling people they're wrong? Put up or shut up.


@ssgnova Unless you can find a way to reset the S/N on the newer units (read: post "CR-48"), it can't be done... by ANYONE. The admin tie is in the cloud, tied to the S/N of the Chromebook. The write protect CLI plug is dead.

If it can be "hacked", it's EOL at this stage! I'm willing to acknowledge it can be done on "CR-48" ARM units (not how), but anything like the "CR-49" and newer generation units are locked down against the S/N CLI bypass.
