Fixed the wiki.
Hopefully the image was not corrupted on download, and my apologies
for not providing a checksum before.
Here you go:
Beyond that you might try to fix the sdcard from inside ChromeOS.
1. boot into ChromeOS.
2. type: CTRL + ALT + T to open a shell.
3. Inside the shell type: "shell" and "sudo su -" to reach a
privileged bash prompt
4. Run the setup script on the sdcard:
# bash /media/removable/rootfs/root/setup.bash
This will copy over the ChromeOS 3.4 kernel plus modules to the sdcard.
Hopefully that works.
If not, well... try to find me on IRC and I'll walk you through some
more comprehensive troubleshooting.

Yesterday we made a simultaneous release of F19 on ARM and x86, a first
ever. Thank you to everybody who contributed- it was truly a great team
effort, and it produced the best Fedora on ARM release yet.
It's a holiday week in the US and Canada and half the members of the ARM
team are traveling or packing their bags today. We are going to skip
the weekly IRC discussion in #fedora-meeting-1, take flight, and be back
next week ready to rock Fedora 20's world.
TL;DR: No irc meeting today.
