    Thread Need to Wipe Samsung Chromebook 3 V.94.0.4606.28, 64 bit

    I have an issue that I think calls for as clean of a wipe as I can do, and start again with Factory Settings. But I will take any advice anyone may have for me. The problem I am having is caused, I've read, because I put it in Developer Mode when I first bought it. On powering on, I get the...

    Somewhere, I think in the Amazon Fire Toolbox installation site, I read if you didn't find the name of your Fire (version) to ask for help anyway. Meaning that they would see if they could figure something out, was how I took it. But I'm sure you'll get a response to your question. I found it...
