I have been given a Google Home from a contest at work. I think it would be very useful if it didn't spy on my every word. I wonder if I can wipe the installed Chrome OS it is based on and install Mycroft instead. Open source all the way! Is this possible?

I understand there is a hidden USB port in the back: would this help?


Yes, Google home indeed has a hidden port inside it. But actually there is no evidence that it supports Fastboot and ADB. So hopes are narrow as of now to install a new OS on google home. Refer here
