ironic how Chrome has always been security oriented while the total lack of compatibility of most of the early Chrome Books served as a gateway to hacking/modding.

post questions or tell your stories about modding obsolete chrome os systems.

i have an HP Chromebook 14-q010dx,OOOOOLD. its in dev mode and am trying like hell 2 make it compatible with Linux/Gallium. any help/suggestions would be appreciated. its not my primary device so i won't buy new unless i'm positive there's no way 2 jack/hack this pos and make it compatible with new programs. it's firnware is Google_Falco.4389.92.0 if that matteres. people have suggested Linux/Gallium installs intended for other models. tempting,as there presently are NO mod methods online for my model. i want 2 link this ChromeBook to my Vita with CMA/QCMA but those are Windows/Mac programs. only been able to link through browser-based ftp (via VitaShell)which is HORRENDOUSLY slow. i'm wondering if a Linux/Gallium install fails if i will still be able to atleast have access to the PowerWash option.
