This is development system, not ready for production usage, and build in insecure configuration. This does not support secure boot, nor it does not perform rootfs verification ubon boot.

1. Resize STATE

After installing Chromium OS you should resize STATE partition:

  1. Press: Ctrl+Alt+F2,
  2. Login: chronos/chronos,
  3. Run: sudo rockpro64-resize-statefs.sh, enter password chronos,
  4. Exit and go back to the Chromium OS with Ctrl+Alt+F1.

2. Install Widevine DRM

The build supports Widevine DRM, but does not ship the binary
as this is against Google license. You can install it manually,
but first follow the resize manual:

  1. Press: Ctrl+Alt+F2,
  2. Login: chronos/chronos,
  3. Run: sudo rockpro64-install-widevine.sh,
