Hey there, I'm only asking out of curiosity so forgive me if this isn't the right place to ask - But is there some sort of difference between Legacy BIOS and UEFI when it comes to Linux or in general?

I decided to go old-school (was experimenting Windows 7, an unsupported release for Chromebooks) and install John Lewis's Legacy BIOS but I noticed a lot of things when trying Linux (GalliumOS). Tasks work way quicker than back on UEFI. Boot time was quick as well, about 5-7 seconds (vs. UEFI, over 9 seconds). How does that work?

Hi there. Acer C720p. Flashed a stock shellball ROM from online, from either Matt or Johns script. Flashed back to stock from Matts BIOS and am Confused w the next steps. The Gbb flags are 0x00000489. The recovery reason is 0x17 RW Firmware version rollback detected. is it safe to use a recovery USB or is there more steps to it? The only OS loaded is GalliumOS on /dev/sda7 (chrx install) All other Partitions from ChromeOS wiped (this was so I can achieve a USB-less install but thats not relevant to the question I am asking). Pic in comments. Thanks

Bit of a technical question here
What are your recommendations for removing a stripped Write Protect Screw? (That basically makes your laptop viable to firmware flashing etc) My write protect screw ended up becoming stripped and I have no idea on how to remove it.

Flashed FULL_ROM but now found myself w/out trackpad support for Linux Mint 18 and Ubuntu 16.04. Support was evident for Coolstar, but I'm not after anything UEFI anymore (caused miscellaneous and unrelated problems with Windows 10 and Ubuntu). Any suggestions?

I am preparing to flash a FULL_ROM on an Acer C720, however I want to be prepared for the worst (i.e. if it gets bricked) What prerequisites would I need to recover the chromebook should a full brick would occur, and what would you recommend for a smooth flash? And which FULL_ROM should I use (+Matt DeVillier, +John Lewis or +CoolStar Organization)? Cheers.
