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.

First I tried to install debian. That did not Work at all. For some reason the screen never showed annything, so I tried the installation on arch. The installation on a microsd card worked like a charm, so, for a while I ran off that, however it was slow. tying to dd the micro sd card installation to the emmc did not work, so I looked around. Keenerd (lots of thanks to him) had gave the hint to rerun the installer on the chromebook with the emmc as target. that worked like a charm.
He also gave some configuration hints, that were really helpfull, however the xf86-video-armsoc-rockchip did not work for me, however after removing it and using just the xserve-Xorg-video-fdbev (preinstalled) does work like a charm (I will never be able to play significant games on it annyway).
To enable audio run
amixer -c 0 sset “Right Speaker Mixer Right DAC” unmute
amixer -c 0 sset “Left Speaker Mixer Left DAC” unmute
sudo alsactl store
that will enable sound somehow (I still only have sound from one youtube instance, but for me that is ok)
