Default [Q] Read/Write the NAND of the Chromecast?

Hi, has anybody tried to read/write the 29F16G08MAA NAND of the Chromecast? Maybe we can unlock the locked ones on this way.

Best regards Cuxx

I was already thinking about doing this, but from what I've read somewhere else, each CC's flash memory is encrypted with a per device key, so if that is the case then there is no chance of this working without finding a way to get the keys. Too bad I don't have the money available to purchase another CC otherwise I would have already tested this out by just swapping flash chips. I have all the other tools to do anything else that I want, just lack of funds.

I'd appreciate it if you could find a source for that. I'm trying to do this attack too.
