What I like to ask. Is that possible to upgrade my existing coreboot BIOS (Acer C720) to fix suspension problem, using ubuntu's own repository (ubuntu software or Synaptic Package manager).

A step which would reduce the risk of bricking the system.?

I'm developing my own arm board, the name of the project is Wakame.

My board is essentialy a 15cmx15cm pcb wich contains an Allwinner A13 soc, wich i have mated with an onboard usb hub (2507), an onboard usb to ethernet adapter, an another ic wich takes the r,g,b groups of 6 pins/bits of the A13 and makes a svga signal for enabling the usage of normal pc displays. The power source ic is the AXP202.

i have implemented all the ic's by means of the reference docs and datasheets.

What i want to achieve with this is a basic purpose arm computer wich can be able to boot from an usb hard disk and or usb cd/dvd unit. I'm working towards the very first physical prototpe, but yet i have no firmware for it. I actually wish to find out if Coreboot could be built for the kind of computer i'm describing in this message, as rom i'm using a flash ic wich fits in the flash pins of the A13 where other projects places an sd card with the image system. I actually would like to have a firmare like olpc, new world apple macs and , should be i correct, sun machines do.

Should coreboot be what i'm looking for, i wish to find out how should i build it on a pc running Fedora, since it's my first time ever building such a critical part of a system.

You can find information about my project here:


it is an altium 2009 workspace containing all my work.

I wish to thanks you for your help.

Unfortunately I bricked my chromebook C710-2856 using the coreboot-parrot-seabios-windows-27102013.rom. I note that in a post from May 8, 2014 it was stated that you can boot off a USB stick with Fedora. Does this allow you to reflash to the original ROM which I backed up? Otherwise can someone recommend an up-to-date guide using a Raspberry pi to reflash this unit ? Thanks.

A German article that talks (among other things) about how BSI (German Federal Office for IT Security) supports coreboot.
