Hi all

Think it would be about 25-30 to get all the kit to root the Chromecast, which then will most probably not be used again. Can anyone please explain the benefits of rooting? Such as what the rooted ROM's will give me over official firmware. For example am I able to run XBMC from it?

I have most probably been lucky in the past because it has cost nowt to root my smartphones, tablets etc?

I am all for rooting Chromecast but not sure of the benefits.
