These builds are an enhancement to the normal Vanilla Builds in the fact they support the Broadcom STA wireless stack. They will also form the baseline for future Vanilla versions where additional enhancements will be introduced. These builds will eventually mirror the Special Build enhancements but without the graphics overhead.
With this in mind therefore, do not log issues relating to the graphics stack!

Special Builds will be ready ‘soon’ for people needing additional graphics support!


  • R57 Chromium Release
  • Google Drive Integration
  • Improved Wireless support due to disabling APManager
  • Broadcom STA version

  1. Working really well on my HP Elitebook Folio G1 (touchscreen, sound,bluetooth,wifi all ok)

    Is there anyway of enabling playstore support though?

    sudo su –
    echo ‘–enable-arc’ > /usr/local/chrome_dev.conf
    mount -o bind /usr/local/chrome_dev.conf /etc/chrome_dev.conf
    restart ui

    The above does not work and I suspect it’s because it’s an unsupported chromebook model (of course lol)

  2. It’s not working on asus x205ta. No keyboard, no touchpad, no wifi 🙁
    I’ve used Cloudready too, the result is not so bright either: no touchpad and no wifi too.

  3. I have finally found a resource for an updated flash player (v.24). It works great on Chromium versions 54 and 55 but it doesn’t work on this version 57. Does anyone have any insight on this? Is it because it’s a Vanilla build or Weekly Build?

    1. Well, the chrome://plugins page is not responding when using this build, BUT the flash player started working today!

      Now, can anyone tell me why the Kiosk mode option does not appear in developer mode? (chrome://extensions)

      Thanks, as always!

        1. Thank you. That helps for the flash. I really need the Kiosk option in developer mode so I’m hoping it works in the Special Build when it’s released.

  4. Trying to run this x64 build inside VMware Fusion on a Mac. VM display “freezes” at “booting the kernel”. CPU continues to chug for a while then goes quiet.

    Video problem? Is this a known issue?

  5. Hey Arnold,

    Can you give me an idea of an USB wifi adapter you’d recommend that works out of the box with your vanilla builds?

    Im trying to use a Meegopad T01 with RTL8723 and I cannot get any of them to pick up the wireless


  6. I’m using

    Version 55.0.2853.0
    Platform 8777.0.2016_10_30_1349 (Developer Build – tonyd) developer-build x86-atb

    And do i need to update newer version with usb stick boot or it is updating automatically?
