Hi, my old Chromecast which was recently located in my storeroom was rooted previously with Flashcast. Upon powering it up and linking to my Google Home app, it started updating and then rebooted. It's stuck in the screen which says "Chromecast..." .while the LED is solid white. I also tried pressing the button when powering up, it then says has only a few pixels of static on the screen and nothing happens with Red flashing light. Sometimes it will boot into the Eureka screen with the LED flashing red. Can anyone help?

Rooted chromecast can no longer update.
You need to flash old rooted eureka rom that doesn't update.

But this old one is so outdated that there will be a lot of compatibility issues.

I have updated most of mine and removed root.
Have one old rooted unit in a drawer but I guess I never have any use for it.

To go back to Stock:

Install FlashCast 1.3 to your usb stick, boot the chromecast and let it install, wait for it to reboot.
Remove the USB, and put in a PC.
Download the following image: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dsgixdn3cu...block.zip?dl=0
Rename that to eureka_image.zip and put it on the USB stick
Reboot back to flashcast again with this stick in.
This will flash a very old version of the stock soaftware. Set it up through the Google Home app, and wait for it to update to the latest. ]


You will be back on stock, with no possibility of going back.

Ive just done this 2 minutes ago.. no problems.
