Not to ask, but any one working on the Chromecast audio or is it possible to maybe develop for it custom firmware or like offline enable the Bluetooth as well or is it pretty locked down

Also do I need teenys board to root my gen 1 I haven't used it for a few years since I upgraded to a nexus player

Hello. I bought Cromekast 2 a few days ago. Once I connected to the router and updated the device did not work. There is a chance I can make it work with flashcast?

No. Flashcast only works on very old chromecast on very old firmware which are rootavld. Gen 2 has never been able to root nor run flashcast.

Hello,

Hoping someone can help.

I have a Chromecast which had Eureka ROM on it. I followed the (REDUNDANT) instructions to flash Flashcast autoroot, and obviously my Chromecast got in trouble as those instructions don't work any more.

Situation I have now is, if I boot with the button held down, I get the black screen with 4 white dots on it.
If I boot without the button held down, I get the blackscreen that says "chromecast..." in white at the bottom .

I have flashed a new USB stick with the flashcast.bin file (v1.3) but when I boot the chromecast with the button held down I still just get the black screen with the 4 white dots.

Any suggestions on what I can do to rescue this chromecast? I just want to go back to stock.

Found that this worked:

Along with subsequently flashing a stock ROM using a USB stick with flashcast 1.3.

Chromecast 2 has never been rootable.
Chromecast 1 is not useable at all with root as it is now since a lot of functions is not available in last rooted firmware.

To be honest root (in my opinion) has never been any advantage. Not much extras that was added except maybe change of dns.

Thanks for your fast reply. I need cast system that can work local and can connect with a accespoint without any internet connection. I found that the chromcast 2 always need internet connection what is really strange? so I was seatching for a diffrent firmware so it doesn't need any internet connection. But to hear from you it doesn't make sense to buy also the first chromecast with a firmware flash. I saw the easycast will this fix my problem to use locale use and doesn't need internet connection?

Chromecast is built and has always been relying on internet connection. Not sure about easycast.
