  1. Hi, Arnold. I installed the special U build, will I get dev server updates after setting it up? What’s the size of dev server OTA updates?
    And having trouble with its installation: after giving the install command, it doesn’t start to install, wants password and giving the ‘password’ (without the quotes :P) error message shows. Thanks in Advance! 🙂

  2. And also eager to know what’s the difference among Your chromium builds – Google’s chrome – Cloudready OS 🙂
    I am testing your chromium builds on my Dell Inspiron 14 (1464) and wanna install. 😀

  3. Hi Arnold! just a quick question, i´ve tried every script for x86 and 64 bits and i couldnt get mp4 or mp3 to work, is this possible? is there a workaround? Just yes or no, so i keep trying or i give up…

    Thanks in advance

  4. Hi, Arnold.
    I have a question.
    Because I am not good at English, it may be hard to read my document.

    You said the updatable builds will be discontinued.
    It was released in the past,
    will it apply to?
    Or is the update from a Dev Server still possible about these?

    1. If you have installed the ‘U’ builds to hard drive, they will update. Until I have sorted the code however for the U builds to allow them to update on USB, it wont work.

      1. Hi, Arnold.
        Please tell me about update.
        I downloaded “Cx86OS_R47-7451.0-Special.7z” and “Cx86OS_R47-7451.0.U-Special.7z”.
        I set up these two in USB memory and executed “sudo stateful_update” command.
        Then I was displayed as follows.
        chronos@localhost / $ sudo stateful_update
        Downloading stateful payload from http://chromebld.arnoldthebat.co.uk:9090/static/stateful.tgz

        Successfully downloaded update.
        Performing standard stateful update.

        and “About Chromium OS” will be displayed as follows.
        Version 47.0.2507.0
        Platform 7451.0.2015_09_13_1735 (Developer Build – tonyd) developer-build x86-at
        Update day Friday, December 25, 2015

        I show December 25 on an update day.
        However, there is no change on a version and the platform.
        Would this update really succeed?
        Not only “U-Special” but also “Special” is displayed in the same way.
        Though I do not install it in a hard disk.
        Or, what’s not been able to run both updates?

  5. Hi, Arnold.
    I write it from Japan.
    I found malfunction of the Japanese input.
    The applicable build is three of the next.

    I choose “Japanese” for a language.
    I choose input method “Japanese keyboard”.
    I should be able to change English and the Japanese input with [Ctrl]+[Space] key if usual.
    However, all key input is not possible after the Japanese input changed it.

    “daily” and “weekly” do not produce the problem.
    Japanese is available for input.
    However, only “special” causes a problem.
    “Cx86OS…” was a similar result, too.

  6. I’m pretty new to this, but I’m attempting to get Chromium 50.0.2637.0 running on Panasonic CF-30. I had them run perfectly off the USB, but when I installed to the HDD it runs slow and I have a great deal of trouble with connecting to wireless networks. Is there a driver that could be on the USB but didn’t install that I need or am I trying to use the wrong build on this machine?
