The goal of LibreBoot is to create a version of coreboot that contains no proprietary software.
 
 
 
This means removing all blobs from coreboot, and also removing (disabling) Kconfig rules of those machines (such as the Chromebooks, at the time of writing) that won't run without blobs.
 
 
 
Our project aims to provide two things
 
* 100% free software repository, allowing users to build their own releases from our liberated sources.
 
* Regular releases for selected machines — community supported and made for easy distribution.
 
 
 
Our repository remains a work-in-progress but early releases for the IBM ThinkPad X60 are available.
