Fedora ARM Remixes
Some ARM devices are not officially supported by Fedora because they require proprietary drivers and firmware that do not meet the Fedora guidelines. Below is a list of devices and links to [Fedora Remixes] that users have provided.
Beagle Bone Black
A live fedora remix for Beagle Bone Black. It auto boots to the MATE desktop as "liveuser". The kernel comes from Koen's Angstrom 3.8 build. Future plans are to package bone script, and generally replicate the default BBB Angstrom experience, but with Fedora.
NOTE: This remix uses a non-standard kernel, updating via yum/manually/etc will result in a non-boot.
Allwinner A10 / A13 / A20
Hans de Goede has released an Allwinner A10 remix supporting a variety of devices including the Gooseberry development board, Mele, Mini-X, mk802 and mk802ii and more. It can be downloaded from:

Make sure your Chromebook is in developer mode.
Bring up a crosh prompt by typing Ctrl-Alt-T in ChromeOS, launch a shell by typing shell... Enable booting from USB:
shell crossystemm dev_boot_usb=1
Press CTRL+U on boot-up, which will boot from the SDCARD.
If everything goes well you will see the kernel boot, and eventually be greeted by the initial-setup program.
