Hi Everyone,

I know there are massive amounts of detailed information, and pages and pages of dialogues, but I was wondering what is the LATEST regarding flashing a Chromecast that has been well and truly connected to the internet and only bought in the last few days.

I see posts going back to last year stating it has to be a certain build, serial number and not connected to the internet, but is this still the case?

Thanks.

Yup, if/when the situation changes, so will the information posts.

Your Chromecast is one three possible states:
  1. Bootloader is vulnerable (build 12072) and Chromecast has not downloaded an update yet.
    -> Cool, don't let it connect to the Internet and flash Eureka-ROM with FlashCast ASAP. Head over here for steps: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2629327
  2. Bootloader is vulnerable (build 12072) and Chromecast has downloaded an update, but not yet applied it.
    -> If you're willing to take some risk, void the warranty, and open up the Chromecast, you might still be able to get root.
    See this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2438715
  3. Bootloader is not vulnerable (newer than build 12072)
    -> Sorry, no root for you at this time. Keep on the lookout for a new root exploit.

Bugger!

Pretty sure the FW\ Build starts with a '17'.

Thanks for the update.
