**You need to be somewhat versed in Linux for any of these mods.

**You need to have full shell access to use any of my tidbits here, whether this is by developer mode (which is what I did), or some other method you come up with.

While I could go and dual-boot the cr-48 into Ubuntu, I picked to leave the Chrome OS, and modify it to make it more shell friendly.

**You also need to make the root partition writable, and turn off boot verification.

sudo /usr/share/vboot/bin/make_dev_ssd --remove_rootfs_verification
sudo reboot


sudo mount -o remount,rw /
sudo mount -o remount,exec /mnt/stateful_partition

You will also need to re-run these commands after every reboot, so you may want to stick them in a shell script.

I'd like to get a full build system on it, but I'm not sure if that's possible yet.

I'm also working on getting java and acrobat support into the browser.

  1. The current usage is "make_dev_ssd.sh --remove_rootfs_verification --partitions 4". Found it from here: https://sites.google.com/site/cr48ite/getting-technical/remove-rootfs-verification-make-read-write
