Need to know what to do to disable my chromebooks write protection.

Go to solution Solved by TetraSky,

Unplug the battery. It might just be what enables the write protection on your particular model. Otherwise it might be a screw somewhere.

See here for info, which says it's the battery for your model:

Need to know what to do to disable my chromebooks write protection. I confirmed it is hardware based, but can not figure out more.

It is an HP 11a G6 EE


motherboard:

this is what it says at the top of the board:

 

DA0G3MB18F0 REV F

Main "Rig"=HP 11A G6 EE

Android Tablet

Raspberry PI Zero W 2

If you have any fun ideas for things for me to do with my PI, send me a direct message. 

I plan to upgrade within a few months to a proper computer.

It worked!

 

 

In case someone uses this in the future, turn off Chromebook, unplug battery, turn on, enter dev mode, from the developer mode login screen, press ctrl alt f2(right arrow), enter chronos, enter sudo sh, flashrom - - wp-disable

 

no spaces in 

flashrom - - wp-disable

accept right after flashrom
