Yeah, we need:

* usb fixed up

* bootloader (loader) needs more ram, as it runs out of memory trying
to read in the kernel - seabios unfortunately lies about how much is
actually there
* graphics - haswell, right?
* atkbd patches
* mouse / i2c bus driver ported over

The wifi, works great.

I have one of these, but I haven't yet sat down to try freebsd-head
again. The default problems with the bootloader sucks.

Are we talking about this device:

https://www.google.de/intl/de/chrome/devices/acer-c720-chromebook.html#ac-c720

This has only a 16 GByte SSD and the rest is in the cloud under the
control of whoever.

 Hi,
 
 Anyone subscribed here that can do some USB tests using FreeBSD on a
 Google Chromebook, C720?

Does FreeBSD run on Google Chromebook at all?

Hi,

DragonFlyBSD runs on it, so FreeBSD should too. The INTEL based ones. 
Only they found some USB issues, which needs to be addressed.
