With this, is it possible to stream locally without an internet connection? I mean completely, not like now where you have to connect even just temporarily before you can go offline.

Right now that's probably the main reason I'd root mine.

Also, is it possible to undo the hack and restore a stock ROM?

Will this work on older firmware?
Plugged in the Chromecast after two months. The Android Chromecast app reports the firmware as 17250.
The problem is, the device is refusing to update! Have left it plugged in for over two hours, rebooted and factory reset. But there still is no sign of the 17977 update!
So, two questions:
- Will this exploit work on 17250?
- Alternatively, is there a way to force the Chromecast to update to 17977?

from op:


Install the appropriate Teensy Root Package on your device.
If New In Box device, use 12940 otherwise use 16664.

worked like a charm. I'm eager to see the exploit source.

What CAN you do with a rooted CC anyway vs a non-rooted one? I mean, I know the benefits of a rooted smartphone, but how do I benefit from a rooted streaming device?

Thanks! I've got to wait until tomorrow for my Teensy, but I'm definitely going to buy another Chromecast for my Bedroom today
