View Full Version : Low beep when booting from USB (Samsung Chromebook)

2013-12-14, 11:36
Hi All,

I've followed every manual but can't seem to get it to work.
I've downloaded the ARMhf images and used DD to write it to my USB drive.

localhost ~ # crossystem
dev_boot_usb = 1 # Enable developer mode boot from USB/SD (writable)
dev_boot_legacy = 1 # Enable developer mode boot Legacy OSes (writable)
dev_boot_signed_only = 0 # Enable developer mode boot only from official kernels (writable)

I then enterd dev mode with the command

chromeos-firmwareupdate --mode=todev

But when I boot and press CTRL+U my screen turns black and I hear a low beep, it then returns to the bootscreen.
I'm using the USB2.0 port so that can't be the problem. Can someone help me out ?

Thanks in advance.
