at the beginning I had a problem launching the extension. It was showing a message ''not supported''. I just uninstall and reinstall. Then I went directly to my extensions I clicked and it finally lunched the app. I rate 5 stars because my Chromebox recovered very fast. Very simple and easy to use. Thanks.

As of July 14, 2023 this extension was working correctly if the user uses it correctly! I needed to burn a custom firmware onto an sd card using my chromebook. in order for this extension to recognize the firmware i had to rename it .bin as instructed by Arun Kumar in his tutorial "How to burn an ISO to a USB drive on Chromebook". It really was that simple.

I have read all the reviews and recommendations, open Google as administrator, typed in the exact model, ran it on stable and still when I got to end and do it wouldn't finish writing onto the disk. Love my chromebook but this extension to help fix an issue took 2 hours of my life and a 9 pm trip to buy a disk I didn't use.

It partitioned my flash drive and made all but 1 partition unreadable. Chromebook to recover wasn't able read anything on the flash drive. wasted my time and a flash drive.

Absolute Garbage. Downloads recovery tools but hangs at 0% when it comes time to download it to a usb device. have tried multiple devices. I should have expected this though, since Alphabet is a big proponent of the "You'll own nothing and be happy" Cabal. "Computer software outmoded? just buy a shiney new model that's still receiving updates!" "Want support? - lease this phone instead and you'll always have tech support!" "Why be YOU when you could be NEW!"
