I got the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) working on the Google Chromecast.
Videos have been uploaded!
Logcat made in Part 2:
- A Rooted Chromecast (I recommend tvall's image..Here).
- PuTTY or another Telnet Client
- Android SDK
- Active internet connection
- Chromecast's IP Address

Assuming you already have a rooted Chromecast and it is ON;
- Open your preferred Telnet client, I prefer PuTTY.
- Type in your Chromecast's IP Address and choose telnet as the connection type (I won't tell you how to get this, hint: check your router).
- Click open and you should now see a black terminal window.
mount -o rw,remount /
- Then type:
setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555
- Next type:
busybox vi default.prop
- Press the letter 'i' on the keyboard for 'insert'
- Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate.
- Press the 'ESC' key on your keyboard so VI goes back to accepting commands
- Type ':wq' without the quotes and with the colon....Press enter.
- You should now be back at the / # prompt..
busybox wget http://goo.gl/TnbG99 -O adbd
chmod 777 adbd
ps | grep 'adbd'
- Open a command prompt and cd to the SDK's platform-tools folder
Your path will be different than mine.
It will probably not list any devices; this is normal. We just need to tell adb what device to connect to over wifi.
adb connect X.X.X.X
- Press Enter
Connected to X.X.X.X:5555
It should list your chromecast by its IP Address.
Congratulations! You now have ADB access to your chromecast.
Please note that this DOES NOT survive across reboots.
