You seem to have missed a key part of the instructions:

Quote:Power on and boot to ChromeOS. DO NOT LOG IN TO ChromeOS, but do ensure a network connection is set up
Hit CTRL-ALT-F2 to get to command prompt

as you can see, logging in and using a crosh shell from within ChromeOS is not the same thing and doesn't work.

Questions about Kodi on an Asus/HP/Acer/Dell ChromeBox?

Check out the wiki and my EZ install script

Got it. I'll have to get a keyboard to make this work. Thanks for helping.

Hi All!
I've the same problem of code_19
I passed to the standalone boot and I have this screen

Booting the kernel.
drm:i915_write32 Error Unknown unclaimed register before writing to a090
i8042: No controller found
gsmi: exec 0xc1ef: Unknown error 0xc1ef
usb1-4:string descriptor 0 mlformed (err=-61), defaulting to 0x0409
sdb No Caching mode page present
sdb Assuming drive cache: write through
sdb No Caching mode page present
sdb Assuming drive cache: write through

I followed the instructions creating a OpenELEC usb installer but when i connect it

sdb No Caching mode page present
sdb Assuming drive cache: write through
sdb No Caching mode page present
sdb Assuming drive cache: write through

...same message!

Is the Chromebox bricked?

Please HEEEEELP!

Thanks
Dario

Snb no caching mode etc is not an error or warning, it's informative and is normally to be expected when inserting an usb flash pen.
