Google Cr-48 Running Ubuntu

Ubuntu meets Google Cr-48 laptop and install Ubuntu on the Google Cr-48 notebook starting by removing tape and flipping a hidden switch…….

Some hackers have even put together a pretty good tutorial for dual booting Chrome OS and Ubuntu Linux on the Cr-48 and the process is actually very easy. You have to hack at the SSD’s filesystem a little and fiddle with the Chrome OS kernel, but if you do everything right, you should be rewarded with a dual-boot system capable of running both Ubuntu and Chrome OS.The best bit, though, is that you have to enable ‘developer mode‘ to escape Chrome OS’s ‘verified boot’ security measure. To do this, you need to flip a switch on the back, under the battery.
