also, if you are feeling adventurous, try this: http://db.tt/Ja1XBNgH
. if it works, you'll have the latest software, root, and no updated bootloader. if it doesn't work, you might be able to recover by using gtvhacker's image. no promises though, since I don't own a chromecast, I cant test it. Don't blame me if your chromecast quits working, explodes, kills your puppy, or hands north korea some working nukes.
your signature made me think there was an actual bug on my screen. I tried to kill it, but it ignored my attempts and kept crawling around under the glass
Just tested, it won't even flash. Thanks for trying tho!
EDIT: Actually I DD'd the image wrong. Just did it the right way, flashed it, and I now have root (woo!), except it still reports as build 12072 in the build.prop
