Nyan Blaze Inquiry

Greetings, all. Let me start by saying that I know that ARM Chromebooks aren’t supported here yet. I’d just like to inquire about possibly supported distros or builds for this machine I was given by a neighbor.
It’s the Nyan Blaze NVIDIA K1-chip equipped HP chromebook and I was wondering if there is any support amongst other Linux distros for it?
I saw Elly mention postmarketOS for another device she’s working on here, but I’m wondering if this one has any support?

nyan-blaze is listed in the postmarketOS table. I believe it’s not being actively worked by any members of the chrultrabook project.

hmm so perhaps I should contact those maintainers

Yeah none of us (chrultrabook) have any tegra chromebooks, but I know the pmos maintainer that does have one, I’ve worked with them on more chromebook support for pmos.

Just for posterity, I’ll add the postmarketOS devices page for this device as a post here in case anyone comes across this post:

Hi, the only ARM64 Chromebooks we’re working on are MediaTek ones (especially MT8183/MT8186).
ARMv7 (32bit) ones are a bit too old, and anything with Qualcomm SoC is unobtainable in Europe (for instance, for the price of WORMDINGLER you can buy two MARKARTH’s with Ryzen 7000).
Situation looks a lot different in US but… yeah

Which ARM ones were you working on? I recently picked this back up and I’m casually working through building a postmarketOS install for it to install to microsd.

MT8183, MT8186, MT8192
Kukui/KRANE, Corsola/MAGNETON (and STEELIX), Asurada/HAYATO respectively

Wanna add that I am looking for a Cherry MT8195 atm to work an that aswell
