Google pushed a typo to a production character, smashing Chrome OS devices

Google says it fixed a major Chrome OS bug that was preventing users from their devices. Google’s bulletin says Chrome OS version 91.0.4472.165, which was briefly released this week, is preventing users from signing in to their devices, mainly bricks. According to a report: Chrome OS automatically downloads updates and switches to the new version after a restart, so users who restart their devices are suddenly locked out. The best advice while this broken update is available is to not restart. The bulletin states that a new version, version 91.0.4472.167, is being rolled out to resolve the issue, but it could take “a few days” to reach everyone. Users affected by the bad update can either wait for the device to be updated again or “powerwash” their device – which means wiping all local data – to connect. Chrome OS is mostly cloud-based, so if you’re not doing something advanced like running Linux apps, this solution has fewer downsides than on other operating systems. Still, some users complain about data loss.
