Watch out if you are planning to root! Currently we do not know if this prevents new root!

New firmware 19084 was released yesterday. It predictably does not mention anything about fixing new root exploit, but anybody who would like to attempt root in future should prevent his Chromecast from updating.

Thanks for the update! From google source site, it looks like they have yet to patch the new exploit, but until I have a copy in-house to test with, I can not confirm this.

They might purposefully neglect to mention any patch of the exploit in hopes of catching people by surprise....

Munch better safe than sorry for those who are still waiting for a teensy to root

HEADS UP: Seems that google HAS PATCHED the HubCap exploit, but did not post the source for it (to keep us guessing?). Please avoid this OTA if you want root!

How can we see which firmware is currently installed on the chromecast? I connected it back to my tv with router off so it can't update, but I see no info concerning firmware.

Use the CCast setup app....

But I suggest you disconnect the Internet from the router before you check...

I more than suggest. I don't know when it started, but the current Chromecast app will try to force an update before it completes setup.

Screen mirroring is already available...A new update isn't going to change anything about that if you can't mirror already the issue is your phone or tablet not the CCast.

SO if you want to root I suggest not taking the Update until you do, You are not going to gain anything just lose the ability to root.

I am guessing I don't know how to get it to work then. I thought the Moto X was not supported yet till the update but I am guessing it is an update to the phone that I need.
