Using Eclipse to debug Chrome on Chrome OS


jamescook says: I learned on 2012-03-08 that our Eclipse workflow is no longer expected to work.

rkc says: The remote debugging workflow for Chrome on ChromeOS changed a while ago - the linux_disable_pie flag was nuked; instead cmtice@ wrote a script that makes remote debugging chrome very simple. Details on how to use the script are at

The Catch: The script will only work on a test image for now - this is because only the test image has the ssh server running by default and copies over the test keys which allow authentication-less connections to the device; something the script depends on.

Our debugging from eclipse solution is in an unknown state - if anyone can test/fix it, a lot of developers on the team would be quite delighted :)
