Once I get back from school (probably around 6 hours :/), I'll post some updates.
I think the rootfs can be done on a separate machine, or at least I think they did it that way. The whole ssh crap makes me think that's how they did it, so you might end up needing two machines. =S the whole tutorial is kind of messy in areas lol

I followed this guide, and it worked perfectly. Now my CR-48 is running Ubuntu 10.10 with everything working except the Verizon card.. I'm sure there's a way to get it working, but I just haven't bothered with it. Following this, you will need to take the bottom off of the notebook, but it's not very difficult. Good luck!

I think I might try that when I get back home. Seems a lot simpler.

I know, right? I'd love for it to be as easy as pluggin in my USB stick, then bam. Ubuntu. Doesn't quite work like that.

Hexxeh released his Luigi firmware after I already flashed mine, this might be an easier solution.

Lol. Luigi firmware. It's funny because it runs Mario when it's running ChromeOS.
Pointing out the obvious :trollface:

E/ Sweet! I'm so doing that when I get back home. I just need to get my 10.10 stick back from my brother. lol.

Although I find the first step to be completely unnecessary. You don't need to take the whole thing apart. The dev switch is behind a piece of black tape. >.>

It's not to get to the dev switch. For some reason, you can't flash to a new BIOS without taking off the bottom panel! The only reason I can think of that it's necessary is probably because there's a piece of metal shorting out two points that disables BIOS writing.

Exactly why! It's a physical write protect that keeps programs from flashing it, IE: a virus.

I'm going to throw out a guess that eventually there will be a way to detect the dev mode with a modded bios, just an amount of time.

I see.

Will I still be able to use ChromeOS, or will it be completely Ubuntu?

You'll probably just have to re-flash it to update chromeOS and then re-flash it back to use both ChromeOS/Ubuntu from my understanding.
