Hey guys - great work!
A few suggestions...
Some sort of reference to the thread ROM version number (e.g, 1.1), along with the Build version number (eg 14975.002) on the chromecast web panel would be cool.
Do you have any plans to make the home screen more interesting? Eg, maybe the ability to set a custom home screen (rather than those photos), or some sort of portal type page where maybe we could see things like the weather, calendar invites, stock prices - like Google Now, but for Chromecast! (obviously I realise this would be done via baby steps at first!
I just rebooted 14975.001 - and it rebooted back in to the home screen and didn't seem to pick up an update to 14975.002...?
Thanks for all your work!
My CC is powered by the TV so it doesn't matter but this time I removed it and used the wall wart to get the update but this does bring up a question. Do we always have to select the CC as our input to see if it's updating before turning the TV OFF? I assume it will show that it's in the middle of a update?? Powering OFF during an update isn't good as I just have found out!
You don't always have to, but its good to check during a OTA rollout. Also, this is probably one of the reasons why the official user manual for the device says to use the external power brick instead of the TV for power. That way you cant interrupt the update process.
Can I make a future request for OTA updates? Could we make it so that it could be a manual process? Mine is powered on and plugged in 24/7 but I would like to be in control for when the update applies. I would hate to be fiddling with my system and accidently power it down while it was doing a update. Just something to consider .
