Does the Pinebook Pro support chromium developer mode?
#1
Question 
Out of curiosity, I have tried putting the Pinebook Pro into developer mode via holding esc and F3 during boot, but it seems not to "see" that I am holding the keys down, booting to the login screen like normal. Is chromium developer mode not supported on the Pinebook Pro? I have Chromium installed on my emmc via Wizzard's AWESOME Dual booting chromium and linux tutorial.

I don't think this has been supported.

I think tllim is correct, but from what I've noticed reading guides and mucking about within my install, several features of the Developer Mode are still available within the install. Many seem to even be available within the base image. For example, Crouton requires use of Developer Mode, but I've gotten it to mostly work (no X/xiwi) without having to do anything special. ayufan would be the one to know, though. It could be like some Chromebooks, and require use of the Recovery button inside the case.

Ok, Thanks! What specifically does the recovery button do? I don't really see much about it on the wiki...
