Google Wifi came out last year to join the increasingly competitive mesh router market. It has a competitive price compared to the competition, and we found the performance to be solid. It might be nice if it had a few more features, though, right? That’s where the GaleForce project comes in. You can use GaleForce to tweak your Google Wifi and gain root access, but it’s not for the faint of heart.
Google Wifi is based on Chrome OS, but many of the config files and blobs for the device (code name Gale) are not in the open source code.
The open source GaleForce project lets you root Google Wifi was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
