As requested, since compiling on a chromebook is a royal PITA, pre-compiled (and tested) kernel will be hosted at

If you are compiling, and have issues with keys, then run
gpg --recv-keys 79BE3E4300411886 38DBBDC86092693E

A remastered ISO available with the kernel installed (and i3wm) for testing purposes -->

I recommend the full UEFI rom from (if you don't want chromeOS anymore). Works fine.

@pounce: I tested it while I was using R/W Legacy bios and it did the same for me, shutdown/rebooted. I was curious about UEFI firmware since I never boot into chromeOS anymore, so I flashed it. Best thing I ever did. Boots faster, and suspend works. Link to it is in pinned post.

Since updating `systemctl suspend` has caused a shutdown. Updating to recent `linux-firmware` packages desn't solve this.

Notice: the update to v11 libpulse/pulseaudio broke the headphone mixer switching. I filed a bug,

@jskier: Just flashed uefi. Used systemd-boot, little faster boot and proper console res from start. nice

@duffydack yes sir, works great with this package. Haven't found any issues. I don't have a need for ChromeOS, so I just removed it. I don't need to press CTRL-L and switching to grub2 (for better EFI support) the countdown works. I'd highly recommend it if you don't need ChromeOS.

Question (if anyone still using this kernel).
Have you flashed the full UEFI baytrail rom from mrchromebox? Works? Issues?

@ShinyRice: Cool

@duffydack, I've opened up the laptop and unplugged and plugged the touchpad, and two battery connectors. Now, the touchpad works perfectly, has been doing so for the past half hour. It was a hardware problem after all. Thanks for the help.

@duffydack, ah, alright, I'll do that tomorrow then. I'll try using live non-systemd distros (given that with manjaro openrc it worked like a dream) and then I'll go to sleep.

@ShinyRice: from
Q. My touchpad doesn’t work! Help!

A. There is also a well known problem with the touchpads on the Acer C710 which makes them vulnerable to static (especially when on battery). There are work-arounds to properly earth/ground the pad. Other models may also suffer from this.

Not your model, but might be related. I meant remove the battery completely. Cut power to the laptop completely.
