My Cr-48 is in dev mode, so I can send the list whatever logs and config
files you want. About the only thing you lose by flipping the dev switch is
Netflix. That site checks the switch setting and blocks access to dev mode
users. I think they are afraid someone will hack their netflix.so file ;)

Your comment about (legally) booting any kernels besides the ones signed by
Google is a bit broad in scope. I believe you would void the warranty if
you dual/triple boot, but Google is not going to be mad or anything. The
chromium.org people are extremely helpful, and welcome people who want to
hack the open source version of Chrome OS (Google's signed version). The OS
mirrors the browser. Both have open source equivalents, and anyone is
welcome to roll their own from the Chromium OS source tree.

Like I mentioned before, if you have questions about Chrome or Chromium
 OS, the best place to ask them is in the cros-discuss mailing list. Send a
message to chromium-os-discuss+subscribe at chromium.org to subscribe. (I
posted an incorrect address earlier. oops). If subscribe via email fails,
there should be join instructions on the site.

Here is a link to a thread discussing rootfs verification and signed boot
