Linux - ChromeBox Kodi E-Z Setup Script (LibreELEC/Linux+Kodi) [2017/02/21]
What are using for 4k x265 content?

So far the nVidia Shield seems to tick all the boxes but they're pricey.

Plus it means my ChromeBox will be retired to a bedroom which seems a bit soon but to be honest it's getting to be more of a problem since I bought a 4k TV. ​

For HEVC/H265 4K SDR content - AMLogic S905-based boxes are a good fit.  For HDR then S905X (and now S912 I believe) boxes are popular, though the Shield is a better fit if you want Netflix and Amazon UHD HDR too.

S905/S905X/S912 boxes will be best running LibreElec - or OSMC in the case of the well regarded Vero 4K.

When I run the ez-setup script in develpoer mode its says that its read only and can't modify anything. I already removed the write protection screw but it does not work.
After this I read that some devices need to scrape excessive material to remove write protection, but I don't know exactly what needs to be scraped.
Can you help me with this issue and tell me what part need to be scraped? I have asus chromebox m004u and It would be better if u show me on picture.

See the Picture of the error

Thanks
your error has nothing to do with the firmware write protection.  First, you added 'sudo bash' before the script command, which changed you to the root user, which put your home directory as /, which isn't writeable -- hence the read-only filesystem error.  Not sure why you did that, but don't.  Just login as chronos as run the script command *exactly as written.*  Second, you have a typo in the script command -- it's 'https' not 'hhtps.' 
You were right. It worked and right now I am installing ubuntu.

Thank You for Your help.
