So 32c3 came and whent and i left with a bricked c201. I failed at installing coreboot, and there was $problem$ with installing it via the flasher. Afterwards was exam time, and now I tackelt it with renewed vigor

first, I still haven't managed to compile coreboot, however libreboot has since published a compiled version, on the other hand that version does not allow for usb boot, so I had to reinstall chromeos and enable usb boot that way. I also found a usable usb image to use for installation. its Kali linux.... well whatever

the one for the ASUS Chromebook flip works like a charm out of the box. just use dd to a usb stick OR a micro sd card.

then dd the image to the chrome book.

you only have 8 gig of storage, but everything works reasonably well and you can easely install all desired pentesting tools (well up to 8 gig of them anyway.

I've got an Asus C100 Flip and would like to try installing this Kali image to the internal storage. Would you forgive my ignorance and be so kind as to specify the full dd command you used for this, please? I'm not sure what arguments I should be giving. Thanks in advance!
