Enabling Android Access on Lenovo Chromebook 13

While Android Apps are almost live on this Chromebook, there are currently some hoops to jump through if you want them to work now. Here are the steps:

sudo su
cp /etc/chrome_dev.conf /usr/local/
mount --bind /usr/local/chrome_dev.conf /etc/chrome_dev.conf
echo "--enable-arc " >> /etc/chrome_dev.conf

  • Log out (don’t power off)
  • If you don’t see the icon, jump into your settings, and select “enable the Google Play Store”

Shout for joy! You have Android Apps. Note that if you shutdown, you will need to repeat these two commands in the shell to bring the Play Store back:

mount --bind /usr/local/chrome_dev.conf /etc/chrome_dev.conf
echo "--enable-arc " >> /etc/chrome_dev.conf
