Developer Mode

Caution: Modifications you make to the system are not supported by Google, may cause hardware, software or security issues and may void warranty.

Details for working with developer mode can be found on this page.

Firmware

This device uses coreboot to boot the system. You can find the source in the Chromium OS coreboot git tree in the firmware-falco_peppy-4389.B branches.

Disassembly

Opening the case might void your warranty.

If you must open the case: Remove 13 screws, 4 of them hidden under small rubber plugs (not under the large round rubber feet) and then crack open the case at the seam, starting on the edge close to the touchpad. See also: https://youtu.be/IrIRLbZ4npY
