No, I don't think so. 48342 >= 19084, and I'm not aware of any Chromecast 2015 root but there's a separate forum for that.

My Chromecast serial number starts with 4126. The firmware build is 15098. The country code is "GB".
I'm going to purchase a teensy and will report back how it goes.

I think at this late date and time, the only place you might find a rooted or rootable CCast is on Ebay.

I know I will never give up my Rooted CCast no matter how antiquated it might seem compared to the later models.

May I know what's the reason you still keep your chromecast rooted? I will still keep mine rooted too, but I don't know what we can do with it being rooted.

Well there isn't much to do with a rooted CCast....Beyond what it already does...
But if ever something does come up it's nice to know I have a good chance of doing it.

Truth is there really isn't much reason to root any android device anymore...
I used to race to flash my phones and tablets but since I have purchased Nexus and GE devices I have not really needed to root anything anymore and I haven't missed a thing.
Especially not all the wonkiness that flashed devices and ROMs usually experience.

The CCast root and autoroot I'm running is the first time in my rooting history that has never caused an instability or issue with functioning....
testament to the coders who worked on the device.

I sure don't have a need for any of the newer devices that Google has released...I don't bother with 4K and when I want to see 4K I just use my Kodi Box instead.

Is it the original Chromecast or the newer model?

If it's the original (a stick that plugs directly into HDMI), read the OP. If you've connected it to the internet and it has been updated, you're probably out of luck.

If it's the newer model (a round disc with a flat male HDMI output cable), then there was never root access to begin with.

Last number is the build number.
You can only root if all of the following are true:
1. It is an original Chromecast 2012 model, not the newer Chromecast 2015 (round "puck" shape) model.
2. It has firmware build 19084 or older (smaller number).
3. It has not been connected to the Internet, otherwise it would have automatically updated and #2 would be false.
