Cr-48 Chrome OS netbook hacked to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Hexxeh, who recently released a Cr-48 tool to boot any OS, including Windows or Mac OS X, has now successfully got Android 2.3 Gingerbread to run on his Cr-48 netbook. All we have right now is a single photo (above), but you can click it for a super-high-res (cellphone camera?) photo if you like. According to unnamed sources close to Hexxeh, it is indeed Gingerbread running on Cr-48, but...

Install any OS on a Google CR-48 laptop with Luigi

Our pal Hexxeh is at it again, only this time it's not Google's Chromium OS that he's hacking -- it's the Google Chrome OS Cr-48 laptop. We've previously shared posts about installing Ubuntu, Windows 7, and OS X on the CR-48, but the process has been a little on the complex side until now. Hexxeh's new tool -- Luigi -- simplifies the process greatly. As long as you can follow his 12-step...

Trying out Chromium OS is now easier than ever

Sure, you've seen us post about Chromium OS here at Download Squad -- Sebastian and I both set up Ubuntu build environments and can blast out fresh compiles whenever we feel the urge. But suppose you don't have extra hardware to do that, or maybe you just can't be bothered. Good news -- you don't have to! Thanks to Hexxeh, you can now download buildbot snapshots of the plain-vanilla Chromium...

Hexxeh updates Chrome OS build, now more kick-ass than ever

While the official release of Google Chrome OS won't be arriving for a few more months, Hexxeh continues plugging away at his Chromium remix -- and his latest release is better than ever. Codenamed Flow (I'll assume because of the epic Vanilla Ice line "Flow like a harpoon, daily and nightly"), the new version adds loads of new functionality. The automatic update feature which was recently...

Hexxeh's Chromium OS Zero learns to auto-update

While it didn't land in time for the release of Chrome OS Zero, Hexxeh has now made a script available which bolts on an automatic update feature. The updater is currently in open beta, and installing it requires a little bit of tinkering via terminal (ctrl + alt + t starts a terminal session on Chromium OS). Follow Hexxeh's instructions, reboot your system or VM, and watch the magic! If...

Chrome Corner - weekly updates, extensions, themes and tips for Google Chrome

More subtle-but-useful updates landed in Google Chrome this week, including some welcome functionality for Mac users. Submissions to the Extensions Gallery continue at a frantic pace, and I'll look at two which have taken up residence in my browser. There's also an interesting take on where the design for the Google Chrome logo came from - could there be a sinister message behind the...

Hexxeh releases Chromium OS Zero

Freescale just demonstrated a tablet at CES running Chrome OS, and there will no doubt be plenty of other manufacturers joining them later this year when Google finally releases their finished code. But why wait - and why shell out cash for a new device you probably don't need anyway? Grab Hexxeh's latest build and take it for a spin right now! The new update is called Chromium OS Zero and...

How to convert Hexxeh's Chrome OS build image to a VirtualBox .VDI

Been wanting to check out that Google Chrome OS developer build put together by Hexxeh, but don't have a spare netbook or laptop to run it on? Why not fire it up in Virtualbox instead? Sure, the original Chrome OS builds that were made available were already in virtual machine-friendly formats, but I found them to be pretty sluggish. Hexxeh's Diet Chromium build runs much more smoothly - on...
