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

Well, I bought my Dell chromebook off of Ebay, and I can't really do anything, the admin has blocked most things and it has ibossConnect on it, can somebody tell me what to do? (I can't get in Dev. mode either)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

how to get rid of admin

You don't need to go into dev mode to wipe the admin off the machine. All you have to do is do a power wash. If the device is controlled by an admin that's a different story. You would have to contact the company that is controlling the machine and have them release the device. If your tech-savvy you can change the serial number on the device which will break the admin control but it is risky and you risk destroying the board.

You should be able to force it into developer mode by doing the following:

use the "3 finger salute", (esc+refresh+power) and follow the steps to remove OS verification, etc. It will then restart on its own (Dont force restart!).

It will likely say something like "dev mode has been blocked by administrator". Keep repeating step 1 till this works. Alternatively, replace the motherboard using another iFixIt guide.

Hope this helps!

You’ll need to take off the back compartment off of your chromebook. Now you just need to take out the battery and unscrew the Read+Write Screw

will this factory reset it?

I need to know

It won't. It will leave it the same as it was except once the admin is removed you can then reflash the ROM so its not enterprise controlled.

You'll need to make a recovery USB with a WIndows or Mac with Chrome installed using this app. Once that SD/USB is made, insert it into the device. Now, hold ESC + REFRESH (F3) and then hit power. It will boot into recovery mode and ask you some prompts. Follows them, the device will erase, reset, and that should remove the admin limits. Good luck.

Install Chrome on a macbook or windows box and install the chromebook recovery utility on it. Choose your device and boom.

if the device was enrolled in enterprise then you can not remove or remove the screw to fix the issue. If it’s not remove the screw and wash the device.

Thx yes I've come to the conclusion that I cant it is enrolled thru some enterprise, I really assumed there was some way I could get around it. I tried any variation i could find but ultimately it's a lost cause i guess . A mom&pop computer shop couldnt figure it out tho right?? I am a novice and hopefully that's not the sole reason, it's a wash, so to speak?

The enterprise enrollment is tied to the serial number and board of the Chromebook. There is no way to get rid of it. It sounds like a school forgot to remove it since iBoss software is mainly found on ex school ones as a overall general rule - it doesn’t seem to show up on anything else.

What you will need to do is return it as defective (because it is) to the eBay seller or contact Google with a receipt and provide the serial number of the Chromebook and have them remove it. Only once it’s removed can you powerwash it and bring it back to a normal state. It’s your call here on what to do, but I’d probably just return it if I bought it because it’s not my fault the seller was negligent.

You have to powerwash your whole entire chromebook.

Powerwashing wouldnt do anything though. even after a full factory reset, the administrator will still be there and you cant get past it. Essentially, powerwashing resets the device, not the enterprise that controls it.

If you want to unblock a few sites you just type the website’s name/activate. However, you might have to write even more things depending on your district. Some districts are more secure than others. In my district, I have only unblocked one site tho.
