Since I was trying to get as close to non-rooted as I can I might as well unroot. Is there a way to trigger it to reflash the Google OTA? Or how would I do it? I rooted this years ago and barely succeeded so it might just be easier to go and buy a new one if extra hardware is required to unroot.

Edit: I can ssh and also get the "SETUP FAILED: Unsupported Mode! This version of Flashcast can only be ran from the recovery parition of the Chromecast."

I did the same thing, can't get flashcast to take on the usb stick, I'm stuck..

I had it plugged into power on the TV's usb port during the process is there a chance it needed more power during the flash and got corrupt? Any ideas to try to revive it?

I'm a bit late to this party, up til now my CC was working fine with my limited use of the Eureka ROM but I noticed that I couldn't cast from a tab in my laptop's Chrome browser. The Flashcast-AutoRoot method gives the same problems as above on the second reboot after the OTA update so I'm guessing there's an incompatibility with the downloaded OTA & the real OTA. I've had to revert back to stock firmware via this thread (post 58).
