Standard Disclaimer: Making these changes may cause issues on your Cr-48. I'm not responsible for problems you may have as a result of running these commands (though they do work fine on my machine). If you run into problems, you may need to recover using Google's USB Recovery method.
- Get root (otherwise known as developer mode)
- You need read/write access to the / partition:
- reboot the Cr-48:
- now back at the root prompt, run one more command. qemacs is a text editor and xorg.conf is the X11 configuration file that we need to modify
- Scroll down to the line that says Driver "syntp". Change syntp to just mouse (leave quotes as is).
- Hit CTRL+X on the keyboard, then CTRL+C, you'll be asked if you want to save the file, hit Y.
- Reboot, the trackpad should be dead!!!
