Supply HASSio image as a Zip File


#1

By adding the HASSio image as a zip file, as well as xz will allow ChromeOS to create the HASSio image via the ChromeOS recovery tools and simplify installation.


#2

Etcher is able to handle to .xz files, too.


#3

Etcher is not available for Chrome OS. Chrome OS recovery tool can only handle ZIP


#4

I know. But if the images are provided as .xz you can use both Chrome OS or Etcher to create the SD card


#5

You have to use convert the .xy to .zip on Chrome OS before you can create an SD image . You have to unzip the .xy to get the .img file then rezip to a .zip

The only tool available on Chrome OS computers is the Chrome OS Recovery tool that can only see .zip files . If the HassIO image was supplied as a ZIp it would work for Windows , Mac , Linux and Chrome OS


#6

Did this ever happen? Or does anyone hat the image file as a zip file. I’m in this boat…slightly older device so I can’t use the playstore on it and I would like a .zip file.

No. I Think Chrome OS users are 0.01% of the user base :slight_smile:

There ore some online converters, but I never had any joy using them.
