You may want to consider using the Stock OS with updates disabled
version, as that version does
preserve the bootloader vulnerability, so you can still use FlashCast to flash a new ROM later. In fact, you will have to
since Google OTA updates (which would patch the bootloader vulnerability) are disabled and there are no automatic ROM updates like with Eureka-ROM.
If you still
want to return to true stock, consider trading with someone who wants a rooted device. Rootable devices are more and more difficult to find nowadays, so you could help out someone who really does want/need a rooted Chromecast.
Otherwise, PM one of the Team Eureka members and they can provide you a true stock ROM to flash. The reason why the ROM is not publicly available is because it is a one-way trip
- once you return to stock, you cannot get root back
as the HubCap vulnerability will be patched. It's far too likely that someone will accidentally (and permanently
) unroot their Chromecast and be upset.
