su to root in crouton for chromeos

I was doing some maintenance on my crouton modded acer chromebook and was wondering how to "su -" to simplify some of the steps. I didn't know the root password to put in but then I thought why not just  sudo -i. done.

sudo -i

I'm sure this is far from elegant or the proper way to do this but if you need to do a bunch of tasks as root this seems like a quick & dirty way to do it.
