Hey Folks,

So I just read the news. Chromecast Audio has been discontinued as a Google product, and I'm quite upset because I love it. I use mine every day.

I've been poking around the internet, and came across this section of XDA, and I'm honestly very pleased that someone has already not only dumped the ROMs from Chromecasts, but released rooted versions of it.

So I was wondering, since this is Linux at the core, is there any way we could build our own Chromecast Audio devices from other hardware and "Google Cast" to them like we normally do?

I'd prefer to just buy more Chromecast Audios, but at this point, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get my grubby paws on them now, let alone when I want more in the future. So Google really is forcing my/our hands here.

Like, surely we could hack this onto a Raspbery Pi, or some other integrated system we could plug into a speaker, yes? It is Linux after all.

But hey, I'd love to hear from someone who knows more on this subject than me. Namely the lovely people in this forum.

BTW had to get a mod's help (SacredDeviL666) to get this posted. For some reason it kept triggering spam checks whenever I tried to post (even though I was passing ReCaptcha). How odd.
