Default Rootable Chromecast flash dump

Does anybody has a dump of the whole NAND flash of a rootable chromecast? (ideally while still in the original factory state)

If not, could someone with a rooted chromecast dump the bootloader (partition)? (basically the first couple of blocks/megabytes)

Any help would be very welcome

To help, if they manage to get adb over wifi working, run
adb shell su -c 'dd if=/dev/block/platform/*/*/by-name/bootloader' > ccbootloader.bin
. This command should, as root, write the bootloader to stdout, which we will take and write to a local file. (For the non-technical people, it makes a bootloader dump and puts it on your computer) please note that this requires your chromecast to be rooted and have adb working over wifi.
