Creating the image isn't hard, the trouble is the stupid installer never seems to work properly according to their directions on most system that I've tried (primarily Chromebooks, so YMMV). The only surefire method that has worked for me every single time is using
dd from the Ctrl+Alt+F2 shell (or one in a logged in account, but then that account gets copied over to the target system) or
dd or the 'python-awesome-dd' script from a Linux LiveUSB. If you use
dd you probably need to run the
fix-grub.sh script from the chromefy repo and the
lab folder. There is a short URL for it,
curl -L goo.gl/HdjwAZ | bash -s /dev/sda to grab the file and run it assuming you are in a
You MUST be in Developer Mode if you are attempting to Chromefy an existing ChromeOS device. Then after the Dev Mode changeover wipes the device you should access the system shell (aka VTY) using Ctrl+Alt+F2 (usually the Forward key depending on the age of the device but may also be Refresh or something else, and you m
Copy/download the quick build steps file and execute it with
sh quick-build-steps.sh and if you are on Debian and have Docker it should fetch the Dockerfile here which when run with the
docker build in the script clones scdtools and installs scdrand (and scdtotp) on your host system.
After you've installed it you can run
sudo scdrand to get try and add some entropy to the kernel pool.
sudo apt install virt-manager # includes libvirt/virsh/etc curl -L https://vagrantup.com/whatever/vagrant-version.deb sudo dpkg -i vagrant*.deb
For the vagrant-libvirt plugin you may need to use an alternate ruby/vagrant path in the call to install the plugin.
See [bootstrap.sh] for quickest
swupd package bundle installation.
If you are tricksy you can
curl the raw [bootstrap.sh] file and examine it and then
chmod +x bootstrap.sh and run it yourself.
The bootstrap currently doesn't automatically force you into i3, but if you log out and select your user from the login screen and click the
