Chromium OS?
#1
So I've played with Ubuntu, I've played with Android and I've played with Bliss, and I'm just not feeling the value in my pinebook, I know it's a tinker device, I love the look and feel (Keyboard excluded...ugh) but the more I plug away at it, the more I think "Damn, This thing needs ChromeOS/ChromiumOS" Having run a Samsung ARM Chromebook for a while, I know the feel of ChromeOS on ARM, and I think it could be a good match for the Pinebook.

I had high hopes for Bliss though, while I was hoping for a good RemixOS port, with that dead in the water, Bliss is my only hope for a desktop based Android.

But yeah, A Chromium build on this beast would be awesome.

I'm not sure what went wrong, but I wrote the weekly CARMOS build to my SD card but it did not recognise it. Instead it booted my eMMC.

Any update on this topic?  I have tried and received a similar result.

Nope, no dice. Haven't tried recently though, but I need to figure out how to compile and configure uboot for Pinebook. Might be simple, but I'm not experienced at this - would like to be though.
