Sometimes you have to stick a screwdriver in it (or how to liberate a Chromebook in ten easy steps)

@aral It looks ... scary🙂 My Acer c720 has a screw to enable / disable write protection, although I still needed to open the lid, which strove to be broken.

@aral Nice! At #35C3 another guy at our assembly asked me to make a binary dump of his Raspberry Pi SD-card for him and put it onto his USB-Flash disk, because he had a Chromebook with SD-Card slot, but could not access the device on block layer 😂
