We do not post those publicly because we don't want users accidentally flashing the update and loosing the ability to root. Please shoot me a PM if you would like the direct link from google for the OTA.

(Emphasis and typo fix added ). Remember, FlashCast relies on an exploit that any unmodified Google OTA will patch, so applying a stock Google OTA won't just result in a tempory loss of root, it's a permanent and irreversible loss of root.

A new exploit would need to be found in order to get root back, and at least so far there doesn't seem to be one in sight.
So that's why Team Eureka is being overly cautious.

Just wondering if this was sent out to Chromecasts? I just checked my version number and am on the latest. Unless something else happened (I've had frequent unable to boot messages a couple weeks ago and rebooting fixed them).. my Eureka ROM may have been wiped.

No, this is strictly a download and manually flash thing.

What makes you think your Eureka ROM has been wiped? Can you no longer get to the web panel at http://ip_of_chromecast ?

No web interface, and Chromecast app shows the latest.

The one I flashed manually was the one with the older FlashCast (which would be the first Eureka ROM). At some point I may have come back to stock without my knowledge.

Spontaneously returning to stock is highly unlikely - the update parts are removed/disabled in Eureka-ROM and rooted stock ROM. And true stock ROMs aren't posted to avoid accidents.

There was a previous potential issue where interrupting an update could leave you in a partial state that seemed like a stock ROM, though. (Can't find the post...)

The $1M question is - does FlashCast still boot? If so, you are fine and can simply re-flash Eureka-ROM or rooted stock.

I just posted a question here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=575 which is exactly the same. I was on EurekaROM before and am now on 16041 stock firmware without my consent. I'm going to try flashing to see if I'm still rooted.

Yes you can flash the DNS modification packages that were released awhile ago.

Just posted OTA 16664, enjoy!
