Yes, go for 3921 or lower if possible, but if 3922 is all you got, some chance it still better than no chance.

Yeah, I guess. Today I am going to both OBT and Sanford BB's and checking out their inventory....

I fail to see the purpose of a rooted chromecast anymore. Can anyone explain what you can do with a rooted chromecast that you can't do with a normal one. I could see the point of wanting local playback before but we've had it for a while now.

Exactly this, plus there will be more functionality added in the near future

Hi all, im having a lot of problems trying to root my chromecast. I've followed all the instructions and am using a Teensy 2++ with the Y splitter (bought one and also made one)

The serial for the Chromecast starts with 4217 and SKU starts with GA3A. (new in the box and never updated)

Ive connected the Teensy to the Y connector first and depending on which Flash I use I either get an orange light on it or no light. Then holding the reset button on the Chromecast I connect it to the Y connector. I get a solid red light on the Chromecast but no flashing flights on the Teensy. The TV says "Chromecast.com/startupissues" but if I put it in the tv on its own it goes to start-up screen ok.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks

Try powering the Teensy and Y cable before you attempt to plug it into the CCast. That was what worked for me.

Also make sure you release the button on the CCast at the first sign of a LED Lighting up...The Teensy should then start blinking.
If not try again!

I tried that not still not working, is the Teensy supposed to have a light on when first plugged in or should it be off to start of with?
