if you have one that's in Developer Mode, or you don't mind wiping to put in Developer Mode, then please do flash the RW_LEGACY firmware and see if SeaBIOS will boot (optionally try to boot a USB). Whatever is/was broken was on Google's end so quite possible it got fixed since you last tried  

I boot the CN65 in Developer Mode and get the rabbit, hit escape and get your Boot screen.  I select to boot from an SD card with a newly installed chrome recovery.  I get the chrome logo, and then it gets stuck on Your system is repairing itself. Please wait.  Eventually it returns to the boot screen.
1. Do you know how to get past that screen?
2. If I forget about trying to restore chrome, can I flash the RW Legacy firmware from a USB at the boot screen?  Or can it only be installed via the shell?
Thanks

that's not Developer Mode, that's the UEFI firmware boot splash.

you can't use ChromeOS Recovery media outside of ChromeOS recovery mode. Booting it from the UEFI firmware does nothing.

past in what sense? trying to restore ChromeOS?
You need to boot a Linux USB, run my script, and restore the stock firmware first. Then reboot, and reload the OS from Recovery Mode.

not sure why you're wanting to go back to stock+RW_LEGACY firmware as you already have the UEFI firmware, but it can only be installed via my script when run from ChromeOS / with the stock firmware.

just to feed back: The Legacy boot is stell broken in the CN65/Chromebox3.  Ctrl-L does nothing.  When I changed the GBB flags through your firmware to select Legacy boot it just went to a blank screen.  So I re-set the factory defaults and switched off developer mode.  Done for now.

My Chromebox won't take updates past Chrome 76.x.  An alternative is to install Cloudready, rather than going though the recovery procedure.
