Somehow, a major bug has slipped through three experimental channels and made its way into a Chrome OS stable channel — AKA the channel that the vast, vast majority of Chromebook owners are using. This bug is in Chrome OS 91.0.4472.165, and it is not allowing users to log back into their Chromebooks after the update, and in some cases, their laptop is bootlooping so they cannot access the lock screen. In these cases, you’ll need to create a Chromebook Recovery USB stick using the Chromebook Recovery Utility and use that to re-image your Chromebook.

On Wednesday, July 21st, a new update will be released. Google is aware of the issue, and a solution should be available soon. If you’ve been locked out before, you’ll need to Powerwash your Chromebook to regain access. If you can’t get to the lock screen because your device is bootlooping, use a USB drive and the Chromebook Recovery Utility to fix it. This is the second serious problem in less than a month on the stable Chrome OS channel.

Highlights

  • We’re reaching out to Google to ask when they might have a timeline for the fix and how this has happened twice in such a short amount of time. We’ll update this story as things progress. Google has posted a status update on the issue, saying that the company has identified the cause. While Google doesn’t go into specifics, the company says that “a new version which will fix the issue will be available on July 21st.” For users already affected by the bug, Google lays out two options to update to the new version:  Ara Wagoner was a staff writer at Android Central. She themes phones and pokes YouTube Music with a stick. When she’s not writing about cases, Chromebooks, or customization, she’s wandering around Walt Disney World. If you see her without headphones, RUN. You can follow her on Twitter at @arawagco.

  • Google seems to be aware of the situation and should be working on a fix soon, but the update hasn’t been pulled yet, it seems, so don’t go to the About Chrome OS screen, do not check for updates, and do not shut down your Chromebook if you can help it. Users who unfortunately got the update first are currently locked out of their machines, at least until they Powerwash them. Once impacted users factory reset their Chromebook, they can set it back up and get back in, but keep in mind this is a factory reset and will erase all local data and the Linux program data. If you can wait for a fix, you might be able to wait and then update your Chromebook from Guest Mode, but we have no timetable for a patch.
