I like your video but there is something you mentioned on your video that is incorrect. For example, if you have an apple mac device that isn't upgradeable to the latest mac OS release, apple WILL provide 2 additional years of security updates to the prior OS release. I own a 2013 MacBook air that only was updated to Big Sur. Its still being used and will get one more year of security updates. Once this last period of updates ends I plan on installing chrome OS Flex to extend its life. For iOS devices apple usually forces people onto the next version of iOS to maintain up-to-date security; although, on occasion apple might issue an out of the blue update especially if its crucial to the usability of an older iDevice.
Apple won't allow this anymore..bastards
Well . I would get Linux….
Hey is there any way to get back to macos after installing chrome flex?
Thankfully. I from Brazil and your video will save my computer. I have the iMac 2007, it’s works?
Will it work on a 2006 Black MacBook Intel T7200 / 3 GB of RAM?
Hi there. Were you able to turn on the backlit function on the keyboard? I'm running FlexOS on my 2012 Macbook Air and can't figure out how to get the backlit function to work.
i tried this on my Macbook 12 inch 2015. at first everything seems working fine until the booting stage. won't show up the mouse cursor so I cant select anything while on OS Flex.
My 2017 MacBook Air doesn't detect any wireless networks when setting up Chrome OS. What should I do to fix the connection problems? I cannot set up Chrome OS without some sort of connection to the internet.
Please help me out
In newer Macs, it won't work. Will chromeos flex run on an old Mac running new macOS?
I followed all the steps but after pressing EFI boot, a black screen appears and nothing is happening further. I have kept it for more than 2 hours.
I installed chrome os flex and it worked perfectly. I decided later I wanted to change and go back and install Monterrey. I am having trouble installing Monterrey. How do I uninstall chrome os flex? Thanks!
Cries in Macbook 2,1
I got Flex to work on my MB 2008 Unity. Slow AF, but it's alright.
I installed chrome flex on my macbook pro mid 2010 and I wanted to know if I could go back, if so how? Thank you
My Mac is not showing up wifi
Also if you have an Android phone apparently you can send and receive texts from your chromebook.
Sadly my iMac 21.5in (10.1) isn't listed. I've tried flex on it and the graphics bug out causing the OS to basically reset itself.
after EFI boot, just saw a dark screen with ChromeOS Flex title, and a voice "No current chromebook focus, press alt plus shift plus L to launcher"
i am trying it on macbook pro mid 2010 version
