Chromium OS is an open-source project that aims to build an operating system that provides a fast, simple, and more secure computing experience for people who spend most of their time on the web.
All downloads are located at http://chromium.arnoldthebat.co.uk/. This will be updated daily where builds compile succcessfully..
Build Instructions for USB
- Use p7zip to extract the IMG file from the downloaded file.
- At the shell, run the following (where sdX is your USB stick and ChromeOS.img is the path to the IMG file you extracted):
dd if=ChromeOS.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M/
- Boot from USB stick
All builds based on x86 and ARM generic board.
If you want to install to your hard drive, follow the instructions here and here. Heed the warnings noted in the links! When prompted for a password for the chronos user, use ‘password’ (without the quotes!).
Once installed, you can update from the Dev Server noted here.
Tested on Dell Studio 1555 with Intel 5100 AGN Wireless. Oh and VirtualBox of course. If you need instructions on how to use VirtualBox, go here and RTFM..
