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)

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.

- de

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!

**Read me: This is coming from someone who bypassed the web filter, printed from school printers on a personal laptop by finding the IP address, got past a local IP internet block and was left alone by admin and the IT department after enough incidents where I worked around their countermeasures.** The Chromebook enterprise lock (and device policies) are based on the device serial number and is not recoverable without having it removed from the administrator’s device console so it’s no longer “managed”. The only way to remove a Chromebook enterprise lock is a new motherbord. In addition, the screw trick only works on EOL Chromebooks that are mostly out of the education system and sold as surplus, unless they somehow can’t afford new Chromebooks after 5 years. This is an iCloud lock for Chromebooks. I can’t even get past it, especially since the write screw Chromebooks are pretty much all EOL and decommissioned. IT DOES NOT WORK on modern Chromebooks (made within the past 5 years).

The enterprise enrollment is tied to the serial number and is loaded on the device through the cloud. In addition, it is stored on the device locally just in case they’re kept offline so it’s persistent. In addition to local storage, the profile gets restored to the device if you erase it by using the stored forced enrollment policies. Simply put, there is no way around it. It sounds like an ex school district machine since iBoss is usually only found on those. I’m not shocked since schools are already infamously lazy about removing BIOS/EFI passwords from their decommissioned systems.

What you need to do is return it as defective (because it *is*) with the eBay MBG - it’s there, so use it. That said, Google may forcefully release it if you provide a receipt and the Chromebook serial number and release it, but they usually don’t and defer it to the enterprise who managed it. Only once it’s removed can you powerwash it and turn it into a “normal Chromebook” again.

It’s your call here on what to do, but I’d probably just return it and let the seller deal with it. It’s not my fault the seller was negligent, plus school district surplus is usually worse for wear compared to a machine used in a business scenario. Since this was missed and it cripples the Chromebook from being useful, you have an easy case against the seller. Unless you somehow get a really nice one, get you money back and try again. Few ex school district Chromebooks are worth saving. Let the seller take the financial hit since it should have been sold as a parts machine - the sellers who don’t check or lie are flippers/do not care.

The problem with school machines - ESPECIALLY school issue Chromebooks is weak school districts. Many of them are too afraid to hold the parents accountable for the damage their kids do to them, and only stop when they give their kid a pass. That’s partially due to how pushy the ones who do it are since they’re so cheap to replace. Since they’re not treated as well, the school ones tend to fall apart first if you have one from a professional environment and a school. The only time they ever stand their ground is parents who give in easily or it’s hard to fight back against. Some districts sell them to the “student” (really the parents) to shift the costs and blame. The irony here is they stand on Mac damage due to the cost($$), but not Chromebooks ($) unless the Chromebook is damaged beyond repair. Most school district Chromebooks need far more work then the other computers they sell off for surplus and come in rougher condition.

As a Chromebook Tech, I can't agree more! There are ways around the Admin tie but it could cost you the board to which you might as well go buy a brand new Chromebook anyway lol.

@hbarnestechk12 Sure you can do something very specific with one piece of data you probably know what I'm referencing, but it's temporary and you need to reset it every time. It's a waste of time at best. This question is just as common and annoying as the iCloud lock ones. NO - you can't save a enterprise enrollment chromebook you got from eBay without going to Google and hoping they help or returning it.

The problem is Chromebooks are priced to be disposable - which is why schools love them. The MacBooks cost a lot to replace compared to a $150 enterprise ready Chromebook. Don't waste your time with Google when it's ex school - they're cosmetically terrible a lot of the time.

AAAAAHHHHHH I can't get extensions or apps with the admin!!! Dev mode is blocked and youtube too!!! also can't remove the Blocksi Enterprise Edition thing that blocks every site that I go to. I think I can go To Developer mode with ESC, reload, and power. but I am managed.

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.

EDIT: Read the above selected answer. This does not work on newer Chromebooks within the past 5 years, which I was unaware of.

@shyshaun The reason me and the others who could figure this out don't bother is YES, you'd be caught. The way these things connect would trip a flag and they'd want to audit the Chromebook.

The old days of it being such a joke you'd be able to cut a special deal to be left alone are largely over.

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.

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?

@csclav14 You are not the only one.... I am a tech savvy genius and have been working on a way around the admin access for a couple years now. @hbarnestechk12 is right and there is no way around it. Some schools have a less strict policy, so if your school has VMware Horizon, then you chose anything besides AUTOCAD and sign on to that.

Then you need to go online to softfamous.com. Download the .exe file. When the file is done, run it and click stop. Go to the dropbox on the bottom for the server and choose your country(United States). Click connect and wait for the servere to connect. Now you can do anything you want, but make sure not to close the "You are connected window." Note: You have to do this every time you log on, so it will become tedious.

-Remove the admins properly

On top of the symbols hold these buttons.

Escape+Refresh+Power. Then the screen will turn off and you’ll see a text that says: Please insert a USB card. I use a HP computer so I insert the card right near the headphones plug. Then a warning will say “Press space to re-enable” Instead of doing it do: Windows: ctrl+d. Apple or Mac: command+d Chromebook: ctrl+d.

Press and Hold: CTRL+D. Then the device will erase, reset. Then login again. That should 100% remove the admin limits.

Go here to find how to remove the admin limits: My chromebook has an admin on it, how do I remove it?

This doesn't work with the devices in the past five years so don't powerwash and revert your device too much

Before doing this on your windows (any version) do not clean all drives or select "Fully clean the drive". No erased data is allowed before going in recovery mode

- de

If you own a different windows computer and you don't see the shortcut symbol= a windows enterprise computer, do F1=Esc+F3=Restart+F10=Power. If you have a windows 8 or windows 10 computer, you can go in recovery mode simpler.

- de

Before you do esc+refresh+power, backup your files so they won't be deleted when you do the shortcut ctrl+d/command+d.

- de

Note: Never sign out of your device and do a factory reset, otherwise, all local data and accounts will be removed. Expect you do not need to worry about files on Google Drive, or on your external storage device.

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.

Factory resets will add the admin to the system.

I am not really sure actually as i am no big expert in this however i am sure that you do not have to go into dev mode. It will not give you any results. At least not the one desired by you. I never used a chromebook so i am not sure how you can fix it. I was actually thinking about buying a chromebook before i bought my actual laptop, however i wasn' convinced that it was the right choice. So i decided to call for the help of https://gadgetguide.in, and they selected the best options for my requirements.

Now search for remove administrator for chromebook then do ESCAPE+REFRESH+POWER, then the screen will take you to removing the admin, I saw you have to scan card in order to start the steps. Follow the steps very carefully, do not powerwash, do not restart or do not exit. Follow the steps then your device will remove the admin limits and the administrator will no longer block websites, should remove your admin to prevent the admin to control your flash and location. If you are ever stuck, always write your password on google docs. To exit the admin removal steps, press the power/shutdown (F11) to shutdown the device and sign in again. It takes me a while so do something while the process is in progress. Then, you’re all set to resign in! If you want to restore your pages do restart (F3) and then the power button (F11) which is a restart.

-More about removing admin limits

To enter recovery/dev mode press and hold the buttons.

After inserting the USB card, press enter BEFORE you do ctrl+d.

Also I want you to prepare the USB card and insert it before you do this shortcut esc+refresh+power.

turn on dev mode: insert USB card and then press enter and do ctrl+d.

disable dev mode: insert USB card and then press enter and enable OS verification and press the enter and shortly, the system will reboot and take you out of dev mode. Otherwise, if you want to restart your device, press the power button. This may take awhile to do this process.

Type the question: Enter the password "356982" Then send the question to everyone.

Good luck.

Remove admin limits

Warning: All data, accounts, and files will be permanently erased.

Make sure you back up anything that may be on the system on an external hard drive, a USB card, a recovery stick, etc.

Now let’s hold 3 buttons on your keyboard

The Escape (5th finger on the left)

Refresh (2nd finger on the left

Lastly, the power (2nd finger on the right)

Then the device should power off and turn on soon.

Now it says please Insert a USB card.

Make sure you don’t use an Old USB card or recovery stick.

Follow some prompts then the device will wipe, then reboot, and that should remove any of your admin limits.
