Installing Kali on a Dell ChromeBook 11

I had a 2014 Dell Chromebook 11 I was not doing anything so I decided to turn it into a stand alone Kali box using the Chromium OS Universal Chroot Environment.

The installation steps are pretty simple:

Add a l33t hacker sticker:

 Enable Developer Mode (this will wipe the device).

 Login and download the latest crouton

Access the terminal by pressing:

Run the following commands:
sudo sh -e ~/Downloads/crouton -r sana -t xfce

Go eat lunch (it takes about 30 minutes to pull down the image).

Hack (legally) all the things:
You have a couple of options on how to use Kali on  the ChromeBook.  The option I will use the most is just  the terminal option.  You can access it by typing: sudo enter-chroot -n sana

You can also access a full gui by typing:  sudo startxfce4 -n sana

Couple of notes:
Kali-Rolling is working on crouton right now due to an abandoned package issue.  They are working on it.
The install of Kali is super light weight.  The meta-packages will be your friend when building your image.
