[Release][v0.1][KyoCast] Your ticket outside the Google Garden for rooted Chromecasts
This MOD has been superseeded with Eureka-ROM, which is available at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2578653
I am very happy to announce my contribution to the chromecast community, KyoCast.
This is in BETA and relies on services outside of Google which may not always be available - It is hosted on a good connection and if you have any issues please let me know!.
What is it?
KyoCast is a mod for your rooted Chromecast device, it redirects traffic that requests the whitelist information on which applications are allowed and instead of sending them to google it sends them to the KyoCast servers.
The config file will be updated on a regular basis and developers are free to request their application be published into the KyoCast whitelist! (please PM me for this).
How do I use it?
This is a standard eureka_image.zip file to flash via Flashcast - it replaces the devices certificate store and places a dns record in the hosts file to force it to access the KyoCast servers
Download is available here: https://mega.co.nz/#!55onGbLB!Qr3RIW...3Ul2T2AJn772Vg
How do I know it's working?
Browse to your chromecast on http://<chromecastIP>:8008/apps/Revision3_App - if this page is not blank then it is working successfully.
If you have the demo_app available, you should be able to successfully launch a number of applications outside the google whitelist. Please note that as I have no client code
I cannot provide you with access to the clients for these launchers.
As of posting the KyoCast configuration includes access to the following (note that clients are not available for these as of yet):
ALLCast Updated 14/11/2013
Chromecast Dashboard Added 14/11/2013
for more information
Fling Updated 14/11/2013
How do I move back to google?
If you wish to move back to google servers, download and flash the following zip which will remove the hosts file entries.
I'd like to throw out a special thanks to ddggttff3 and tchebb, you guys are awesome!
