First let me say the libreboot install docs really are a fucking mess if you don't know what you're doing, but that's on people like me not trying to improve it for others after figuring it out. Oh well. The headache is half the fun, right?

Completed the required laptop disassembly:



Wired up the pi as required:



Put the clip on and connected it to the pi correctly:



Replaced the wifi card:



First boot:



From here, I migrated the Arch install to Parabola and life was free.
