Download extract to a folder, run mongoose (which launches at localhost:8080) and browse to http://localhost:8080/demo_app.html , from there you can enter the app name you want to launch and any data params (which is what we don't know for these services)

Original source for those files is https://github.com/googlecast/cast-c...ive/master.zip

Chromecast...Update list.
I know I have seen several Chromecast units at my local ChinaMart, and I also know, they have been there for quite some time too.
What puzzles me is this.
If Google provided an update to lock up the module, would those remaining modules on the store's shelves be a prior issue, and not updated before they were shipped out?

I would spend the $35.00 if I had some information on the actual update date/time, so if there would be a way to check for this on the device's box, to see if and when they shipped with or without this update.

I have looked at this device many times, and almost bought one, but decided against it after reading the reviews on it.
As a tinker toy, it would be worth the learning cost, as a serious media device, well, that is yet to be seen.

Thanks for all your assistance and generous efforts getting this unlocked and shared with so many!

I purchased a chromecast at Best Buy 2 weeks ago and was able to apply root no problem.

Just tried your dashboard and it sends pages to my CC, not really sure what it is for though as you cannot interact with the page.

Tried Fling 0.6 situated in my VLC folder, and although it finds my device, nothing I drag to it does anything.

Tried MP4 AVI MKV

Launch fling with "java -jar fling.jar ChromeCast"

Getting somewhere.

Added command line to batch file dropped into VLC folder along side fling.jar, ran batch file to load Fling.

Now MP4 is playing but not AVI or MKV.

EDIT - I changed the Fling Settings (removed the MKV extension from the list of file-types) and dropping an MKV file worked but with the "large black band at the screen bottom" problem.

EDIT 2 - Removed the AVI file extension from the list of types to transcode (as I did with MKV) and the CC screen goes black but nothing playing, possible file resolution issue?

EDIT 3 - Tested a few other AVI files and they changed the TV to black/
white/black and then dropped back to the CC screen. another MKV played full screen superb quality, so it looks to be a bit hit-and-miss and down to the spec's of the file type

BUT fantastic job getting this working!
