In Shortening the Developer Mode Splash Screen section, you could be interested in this document--Xan (talk) 08:52, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Also the product disasembly instructions could be useful, and this blog in which they replace SSD harddrive.--Xan (talk) 11:09, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Substitute ROM


Is there a website here for replacing SeaBIOS. Can anyone see if it's useful. Can we use in the page? Thanks.--Xan (talk) 10:13, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

In Coreboot there is also some generic instructions.--Xan (talk) 11:56, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

My experience


I started a log with my progress replacing chromeos with archlinux (work in progress). When it were finished, you could include as references (pictures and all stuff)--Xan (talk) 17:08, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Substitute Flash NGFF memory (SSD harddrive)

Here you can see the main reference of replacing the original 16 GB with new NGFF. Perhaps we could add in the page.--Xan (talk) 10:25, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

replacing ssd got nothing to do with Arch Linux, just add a "See also" section at the bottom and link to your post.Dhead (talk) 11:54, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Dhead. I did not know where to put external references.--Xan (talk) 12:32, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Battery clock


I suspect that HP Chromebook 14 has not a battery specifically for hardware clock. I leave the laptop battery and after that, in every boot, I have to set the datetime.

Can anyone confirm it spending all the laptop battery and see what happens with the data? If it's confirmed, it implies that you have to install NTP/SNTP client in order to properly set the date in every boot.--Xan (talk) 13:29, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I don't have the Chromebook 14 but except ntp you should also consider installing fake-hwclock which will save the time on shutdown and import it on startup so you won't experience weird issues due to the fact the time changed to something like 1970.Dhead (talk) 06:34, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Very useful. Perhaps we could do more promotion of this package in the wiki.--Xan (talk) 22:11, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
It's generic, don't add it to the HP Chromebook 14 page nor Chromebook page, instead add it to Time page maybe under new section "Tips and tricks" and then link from the HP Chromebook 14 page (create a Time sub section under Post Installation Configuration) to this section on Time page.Dhead (talk) 23:00, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Done. See NTP
See my changes, the idea is: 1. Separate sub-section for the package. 2. Proper explaining what the package does as on Arch we actually trying to understand how our system works. 3. Why needed. 4. How to use (the supplied systemd service). 5. :) Dhead (talk) 10:27, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
OK. I solved this issues with 'swclock' from OpenRC.--Xan (talk) 14:50, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

Screen replacement

Perhaps this could help if someone wants to replace the screen.--Xan (talk) 15:57, 8 September 2015 (UTC)
