Not that I know of, but you can run Chrome on top of Linux

I have used the Ubuntu image given in Odroid OS images directory. Is it possible to run actual Google Chrome Browser instead of chromium browser?

Can the Odroid team work on this Chrome OS ? We have a big requirement with Odroid Boards and Chrome OS.

It seems to be impossible since Google doesn't allow that.

Hmm...it appears some of those who replied don't really know what Chromium OS (or Chrome OS) actually is. Running a browser in Linux is far from running a browser based operating system. Chrome OS is an actually operating system...in place of Ubuntu or Linux, not in addition to. Chromium OS is the open source version of Chrome OS.

It appears there's nothing currently available. It's not that it's impossible, just that there won't be anything official from Google. There are some open source developers out there working on SBC (single board computer) ports of Chromium OS. FydeOS has one for Raspberry Pi but at this point, I think we're out of luck on the C4 front.
