Chromecast has been rooted. You have to have specific devices, as Google locked the device down and is unrootable after a certain point. Check to see if your serial number is listed in the "Rootable Serial Numbers" thread, and make sure you've never updated it over WiFi, as it will automatically install Google's updates and render your device locked permanently. All of this information is covered extensively in the threads around this one you started, use the information that is present.

Also Google has open sourced Chromecast's API's so anyone can develop app support for it. The question is what you plan on doing once you root/jailbreak it. Whatever it is will still require development and app support.

borxnx: Thanks, but I already knew that, obviously I am talking about the *NEW* devices that have a protected bootloader! :-/
xlxcrossing: I knew all that too, I am not asking for API's or anything else, I am specifically asking for jailbreaking and being able to install my own ROM!

At the very least @rekids is working on a hardware method...

I'm sure there are other threads, but that was just a quick few-minute search.

Likely you won't see anything open-public until it actually works, as it's a cat-and-mouse game with Google. Tip your hand early and Google could just roll out an update to stop you before the exploit is usable by a significant number of folks.

Maybe its because the exploit was patched very early but i fail to see any benefit from rooting.

And i say this as someone that used to flash 5 ROMs a week.
This device is very limited and i doubt root would allow much

Yet... Now Team Eureka has added native screen cast. That's definitely a bonus. Say that again in a year, after the chromecast2 comes out and Google changes everything, again.

It's more like early access for that, as it should get released to all (supported configurations) once Google declares it ready.

IMO, Team Eureka's web panel adds a whole lot, but I'm the type that likes control over things like DNS and being able to remotely reboot things.

I am quite sad that only those in the US got chance to root on early devices.
Im in the UK and just bought mine but cant install custom roms.
Hope some genius finds a workaround.
