These images are outdated! do not use them anymore!
there are much more useful roms and mods for the chromecast now made my devs who actually own the device. go use them. I am no longer doing anything at all with the chromecast. (I haven't found one at any local store with a serial number in the rootable range, and I have no use for a stock one.)

rooted images for the chromecast that will remove google's ability to update anything at will. Use this to save your open bootloader.

Discussion started in here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2387392
Split off to make it easier to find for new users.

download:
build 13300: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2453097 not my image. Made by someone who actually owns a chromecast.
build 12940: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...t-12940.bin.gz
build 12840: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...omecast.bin.gz

Thanks to:
GTVHacker - original root image
Google - for making the h2g2-42
ellen - putting up with me making these instead of watching chick flics with her

A factory reset will just wipe the data partition, so the device will still be safe from self-upgrading.

This is great man, I just got my cable today and my chromecast a couple days ago, I refrained from plugging it in, so unless its been updated already it should be on!

So do I need to flash the original GTVHacker bin and then your 12940 bin?

Thanks for the great work and thanks to GTVHackers and XDA.

So we only need to flash one of these two images, correct? I'm assuming it's the first one, right? "gtvhacker-chromecast-12940.bin.gz" is tvall's image that we need to flash? After flashing that image, we'll be rooted, on the most current version, AND auto-updates will be disabled?
