    Unable to get SU/Root in Terminal on Cr-48?

    I've switched to developer mode but am unable to get superuser? I keep getting "Unknown command" and "User not known to the underlying authentication module" errors. What's wrong?

    By default, you can login with the chronos user with no password. This includes the ability to do password-less sudo. The instructions on the screen will tell you how you can set a password.

    i figured it out how to login as user 'chronos', but still can't gain SU, as it's asking for a password. Can someone clue me in?

    chronos@localhost ~ $ su
    Password: ___?

    Are you hitting CTRL+ALT+---> key or CTRL+ALT+T? Do the former.

    After ctrl+alt+--> key, type 'sudo bash'.

    Hmm....confused..(my cr-48 was sent back for repair, so can not try this myself...)..

    I remember it being simple: flip dev switch, CTRL+ALT+-->, sudo bash, do whatever I wish to it...
