Original post

Fire Os is a simple linux OS focused on productivity and git tools, optimized with all drivers to run on Chromebooks, Netbooks and micro boards.

  • Fast and optimized Push and Pull
  • Full C library for adding custom components
  • Fully customizable
  • Runs Live and does not effect main drives
  • SSH connection
  • Network tools
  • Kernel_headers

You can also:

  • Use all git tools
  • Add custom tools using fire-overlay

Not all functions are working, further development is still required.

How to build

FireOS uses the following tools and requires these dependencies:

  • wget
  • make
  • gawk
  • gcc
  • bc
  • bison
  • flex
  • xorriso
  • libelf-dev
  • libssl-dev


FireOS requires to be run on a linux operating system

To build use the following command

$ chmod +x build.sh
$ sudo ./build.sh
$ sudo ./16_cleanup.sh

For repackaging with updates (comming soon)

$ cmod +x update.sh
$ cmod +x repack.sh
$ sudo ./update.sh && ./repack.sh
