Hi @nsr88nsr69225,

If you lost admin password, and there is no other user created, then you have to reimage device, which is basicaly full reinstalation of software on the device. You can find a procedure how to do that here. Good thing is that you can use this process to install newer software release, if relevant to you.

BR,

Milos
