This ROM has been replaced with Eureka-ROM, which is available at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2578653

I am happy to announce my new ROM, PwnedCast ROM! This is a replacement for my current rooted ROM.


Now with 500+ installs and counting!

This ROM is based on the 13300 stock image, but with some cool features! The big improvement is the addition of my OTA update system called PwnedCast OTA.
This means that if I ever release an update for this ROM, your ChomeCast will automatically download and install the update!
For more info, click the link under Features. Don't worry though, ill still post updated links in this thread.

Features:
  1. Root SSH/Telnet Access
  2. Uses DHCP DNS Servers
  3. Google OTA's Disabled
  4. Custom Boot Image
  5. PwnedCast OTA Update Engine! Read more Here: http://ota.team-eureka.com/
  6. PwnedCast Recovery Image, which is based on FlashCast V1.1.1
  7. KyoCast Built In!
  8. More to Come?...

Install Instructions:
  1. Setup and Install FlashCast V1.1.1 on a Jump Drive: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2452838
  2. Rename the Zip to eureka_image.zip, and place in the root folder on the FlashCast Jump Drive.
  3. Plug the FlashCast jump drive into the ChromeCast, hold the button, and plug in power to boot the device.
  4. NOTE: If you try flashing with FlashCast V1.0, the install will fail.
  5. Flashing will take 6~ minutes, be patient! As long as the ChromeCast LED is white, it is flashing.
  6. Once done, the device will reboot.
  7. Enjoy!

This ROM requires a exploitable device that can run FlashCast.

Nice work. The OTA updating works like a charm and it's nice to know that my 'casts will just update themselves when and as needed.

In light of Kynonz' release, perhaps a partnership is in order? Combine your OTA update capabilities with his custom whitelist feature. That would be a truly awesome ROM.

Let's just say things are looking good ATM. But until anything happens, you can flash his mod over my firmware without any issues.

Am I understanding you correctly? If I flash Kyonz's mod onto your OTA ROM, I'll get his custom whitelist AND still keep your OTA updates? If so, nice!

You will still get OTA updates, but an OTA would remove the feature, unless I have said mod added in my next release.

But for the good news, I don't have any new OTA's in the works atm, so there should be no need to worry

Actually, it might be a good idea for me to code-up a MOD saving feature, so mods could be auto downloaded/updated during the OTA process as well... guess I have some researching to do.

Tried flashing your new release. But it keeps failing for what I don't know? Did everything I did the first time.
It shouldn't be a problem just flashing this over the other Rom right?
Oooooh I did change to FlashCast 1.1 which worked perfect!
But when I put the new Rom on the jumpdrive, then rename it like you said.
After powering on the device holding the button til the white light. Soon as I let go it turns red

this is what the log gave me:
Reading recovery parameters
Looking for mods on /dev/sda1
Resetting crash counter and boot mode
