I want to install Chromium OS in my MacBook Pro, is it possible? Could someone share with me any tutorial to install Chromium OS successfully?

I have the old white MacBook (mid 2007). I pulled the 2.5 inch hard disk out and put it in a USB hard disk enclosure. In another machine, I used dd to copy the arnoldthebat Chromium OS image to it. I put the hard disk back in the MacBook and power up while pressing the option key. I don't have a MacBook Pro so I don't know if this method will work on it. Note that OSX and your data will be completely overwritten by Chromium OS. You may want to try it on a spare hard disk. 

One more thing...the MacBook was running boot camp but I am not sure it mattered.

I have a MSI Wind U100 and it works with Arnold The Bats build except for Wifi.  There is a video on DailyMotion showing Wifi working on this hardware, but of course does not say what build/modification is necessary to get it working.  Does anyone know what I need to do?

Hey, I have a little dilemma. I have a windows XP computer and I want to put chrome OS onto it. Is there anyway I can make chrome OS boot from a flash drive onto my windows XP computer, or actually replace XP with Chrome? Also, does chrome os have an offline mode?

+Andrzej Bieńkowski Trying that method you need to have exactly the same hardware as an existing Chromebook. The script makes you pick a recovery image of one of the current models. I tried this method with my Yoga 2 which matches the Pixel (1st gen) but it was a total failure.

I am trying to boot the arnoldthebat Chromiumos special build-r44-7015 via usb but for some reason it gets stuck at the Chromium Splash Screen until the screen times out. What can I do? I have broadcom wireless, AMD A6-1425 Temash chipset. I really need this to work. 😞

+Chan Fredrick Extract libpepflashplayer.so and manifest.json from a Linux version of Chrome browser. You can also find these files in /opt/google/chrome/pepperflash folder if you have Chrome browser installed in your running Linux distro.

In Chromium OS, remount filesystem in write mode ("sudo mount -o remount,rw /"), create a /opt/google/chrome/pepper folder and copy the above 2 files to it. You will need to create a third (text) file in the pepper folder named pepper-flash.info with the following lines:

FILE_NAME=/opt/google/chrome/pepper/libpepflashplayer.so
PLUGIN_NAME="Shockwave Flash"
VERSION="18.0.0.160"
VISIBLE_VERSION="18.0.0.160"
DESCRIPTION="$PLUGIN_NAME $VISIBLE_VERSION"
MIME_TYPES="application/x-shockwave-flash" 

The version number should match the version shown in manifest.json file.

Hey, thanks for the post. I heard back from Arnold and he suggested d/l'ing any of the special builds as they take care of the touch-pad issue. Might try this cl instruction first tho. But yeah, you should def get in touch with him about your issue.

The link is: http://arnoldthebat.co.uk/wordpress/2015/05/10/chromiumos-special-build-r44-7015/

Get a 4Gb memory stick, then after you have downloaded the IMG file and extracted it from the 7zip archive, just run at a Linux prompt in the download directory:

dd if=ChromeOS.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M

where sdX is the USB stick's mount location (usually this will be sdb)

Broadcom wireless, trackpad and audio all working with full Intel video support This is on a Dell mini 10v. See: http://arnoldthebat.co.uk/wordpress/chromium-os/

Good luck.

Arnoldthebat gets stuck on this screen when booting up or just a regular splash screen or in a command line environment..... Refuses to boot.....what am I doing wrong? Also I have an HP 215 G1 with AMD A6-1450 and broadcom 43xx wireless. Hexxeh boots but no wireless.

+m.ali petek I always install Ubuntu on under powered hardware. With this particular device it is nearly impossible to get any Ubuntu derivatives to run smoothly. They ALL have severe page tearing, slow UI's (not at first), and they all have poor performance in the network depo on my laptop. I have also tried other distros that weren't based on Ubuntu/Debian. I tried Solus OS (formerly Evolve OS) and they too were to much for my system and their devs/community was really rude and snobby. Only thing I can get to run smoothly is ArnoldTheBat weekly builds with my phone tethered via USB but that is not a long term solution as I don't want a high phone bill (or to use all my data) so I have to use ATB Special Builds that have BCM43.XX support.
