Default [ROM][17250] Stock OS with updates disabled

What is it?

This is a FlashCast mod to give your Chromecast a nearly stock OS. Although Team Eureka (obviously) believes that the features we've added to Eureka-ROM make it superior to the stock OS, we realize that it's not for everyone. Perhaps you want a clean base to develop from, or maybe you want want to try out a new feature from Google before Eureka-ROM is updated. Either way, the last thing we want to do is force you to use a ROM you don't want. To that end, this ROM is completely stock, save for two modifications:
  • update_engine is removed so that your vulnerable bootloader is preserved.
  • FlashCast is installed to the recovery partition instead of the stock recovery, to mitigate any bootloader updates Google may try to push through other methods.
Please note that this ROM contains no SSH, ADB, Telnet, or other means of remote shell access. In addition, it has no OTA system, so it is your responsibility to update to newer versions using FlashCast. We recommend that you use Eureka-ROM instead unless you have a specific reason for wanting a stock experience.

Where do I get it?

If we are currently still running the Eureka ROM based on 14975 and using the custom whitelist feature that you guys integrated into the 14975 Eureka ROM image, would it CURRENTLY be possible for us to take advantage of all these new apps that are going to be flooding the Google Play Store/Chrome(PC browser apps/extensions) Web Store, or MUST our Chromecast be the newest updated version 15250(with either a future Eureka ROM update to 15250, by flashing this "nearly stock OS build" 15250, or simply someone just has a stock, NON-rooted Chromecast that has taken all the OTA updates and has recently updated itself via an OTA to the newest stock 15250 firmware build) ? I understand that by using Eureka ROM's "custom whitelist" that you guys manually update the whitelist yourselves and it's obviously not physically possible to update your whitelist fast enough to keep up with the "stock Google whitelist," thus always lagging slightly behind the stock Google whitelist AND quite possibly accidentally leaving out some of the lesser-known Android apps and/or Chrome Apps and/or Chrome Extensions that have been added by Google to their stock whitelist, due to the simple fact that you guys just haven't learned of them yet or just haven't been told of them yet?

Basically, if one wants to be able to take advantage of all these new apps that will be flooding Google's stock Chromecast whitelist over the coming weeks/months, etc., to cover all our bases right now so that we're not either hoping that you guys find out about lesser-known apps such as, for a hypothetical example: XCompany's "FancySchmancy Chromecast Media Caster", should we use this upload that you posted so that we're on the newest 15250 and use the stock Google whitelist? Or is it still possible to take advantage of the new apps that the released SDK is gonna bring to us if we're on the older 14975 firmware and disabling your Eureka custom whitelist and instead using the stock Google whitelist? ie. [Eureka 14975 ROM]/[stock Google whitelist] ?

or can i use this on my unrooted chromecast without the vulnerable bootloader?

In order to install this Vanilla Chromecast 15250 with blocked OTA.

Chromecast has to be ROOTable and has to be flashed with [FLASHER][v1.1.1 - 2013-11-29] FlashCast

It works 100% THE SAME AS non rooted 15250 Chromium, nothing special about it. It's taste of 15250 for develpers and people bored with feature rich 14975.002 eureka mod.

BTW: Great idea for future development cycle - quick minimal releases before major releases.

EDIT:
Works as should and for sure Whitelist is by Google so Fling is not available, AllCast is working like a charm.

No. It's not a whitelist issue as the Team-Eureka whitelist includes what's on the Google whitelist.

Apps built on the released SDK require:
  1. On Chromecast: The "magic stuff" that is in the 15250 build (or newer)
  2. On casting device (for Android): The "other magic stuff" that is in Google Play Services 4.2.34 (or newer)
  3. Being present on Google whitelist (or Team Eureka whitelist)
Eureka-ROM v1.1 is built on 14975, so it fails condition 1 for new apps.

Stock Chromecasts should have auto-updated to 15250 already.

Installing this stock, root-preserving, non-updating, no features added ROM will give you:
  1. All Google official apps, including the new releases built on the released SDK
That's it.
No unapproved/beta apps (at the time of this post this includes fling, vbukit, and Audiour)
No ADB, SSH or Telnet
None of the other Eureka-ROM features (static IP, alternate DNS, web panel, etc)

1. Any new apps that use the new API will not be available in the current Eureka-ROM that is based on 14975. This is because the new API is not enabled in its Eureka_shell binary, which is the program on the device that literally runs almost every application.

2. Our custom whitelist is no longer a manual entry process, and auto updates when google pushes new applications. This means rooted devices now get apps just as fast as stock devices, as long as they are on a ROM version that supports said application.

3. Disabling the custom whitelist on the 14975 based rom will not allow you to use the V2 API apps, as I stated in #1

We are working on a new version of Eureka-ROM, but are just having a few small things hold us back. This is why the release is taking longer then normal, and as such, we released this minimal image for those who would like to update for the time being.
