Because I am so hopelessly addicted to hacking Chromebooks, and because the ASUS Chromebook users who couldn’t boot USB got me into hacking mode, I have *finally* managed to get a working custom ROM on the HP Chromebook 14.
As noted, it breaks power-saving even more than it was already. But, on the plus side, it boots a few seconds faster, and I think it runs a bit faster too (but that could be car wash syndrome either).
Without further ado! Please see the pre-built firmware page!
