Does anyone know how to do a clean install of Ubuntu on this chromebook? By this I mean that I want to totally remove ChromeOS and only use Ubuntu, I don't want to use Crubuntu. Just a link to a guide would be fine, thanks! :)

Install via jeltka, following these instructions.

This flashes the bios. After rebooting, you will have two choices - choose the second. Then type root. This gives you a root shell. Once you have a prompt, run the script jeltka.sh.

Presently it all works - except the touchpad, so I am using a usb mouse. I am trying to figure out how to make the touchpad work.
