My delivery date is Tues. I'll know more then... :unknown:
In any case... the critical feature is Coreboot .

Reasons for Chromebook...
I have seven x86 devices. Three were compromised by a nasty firmware bug. My burner and about a dozen writables are radioactive as well. :wall: Also a wireless keyboard.
A used $75 (USD) eBay tv box cost me about $1000 (USD) in lost hardware. The quarantined gear is lost because if radioactive @ this level it might as well be bricked.

Salutations... :good:

I followed the instructions in the last post to the letter...

SUCCESS!!! :Yahoo!:

I can now (finally) finish my PekWM derivative minus ANY firmware threats ($$$).

I just need to get the driver to the Chromebook 14 touchpad
until then I'll just use my trusty ol' school handheld trackball mouse.

"Best Regards"... :beer:
