I got two Chromecasts on latest Eureka 44433.001.... just found them deep in my collectables. They no longer work as intended: no Netflix, no casting Chrome->Chromecast, ...

I missed Flashcast-AutoRoot. But this script no longer works with current firmwares.

Yeah, the last Eureka ROM build was years ago and FlashCast AutoRoot hasn't worked anymore for years as well.
You'll either have to build your own firmware based on the info from the FlashCast AutoRoot thread or permanently return to stock firmware and let it update (remember there's NO getting root back afterward!)

Thanks for the info. Have you ever built your own firmware? I wonder if these scripts still work. I just want latest Google firmware with ssh in place

No, firmware builds are way out of my league. Never had the time or sufficient interest to pursue it.

1. KenMacD had built a bootable image by using eureka kernel with system version 124602 in another thread.
This is slightly older system, but possible may work for your needs.

2. I posted a method to loopmount a 159268 rooted system after booting the last rooted build and then restartiing services. There is not much risk of running into bricking issues with this method, since the modifications does not cause permanent change to boot process of old system. So if you mess up, a power cycle would get you back to where you were originally.

3. It is also possible to use the kernel KenMacD used and modify the initrd, and combine it with 159268 rooted system image and have it natively boot. There is some more risk on this, if you don't know what you are doing. I am sure many folks in here can build this, but I am not sure whether anyone still have the interest to spend the time to do the required testing etc before publishing a foolproof build and instructions on this. (vs with step 2 you don't need enough rigourous testing before publishing, since it is not permanent mod).

It's ONLY for Chromecast gen 1 (2012) as both the original exploit and the HubCap exploit were fixed before the second-generation (circular) Chromecast was released, so
  1. This firmware probably wouldn't recognize/support the newer hardware
  2. There isn't a way to flash it onto the newer hardware anyway (unless there's been an new exploit discovered? I don't frequent the 2015/newer Chromecast sections)

If you're talking about any Chromecast variant other than the ORIGINAL 2012 version (is not a circular "puck") then not that I'm aware of, though I don't frequent the Chromecast (2015) or other Chromecast sections, so perhaps an exploit was found for those newer models.

Even if you do have an original 2012 Chromecast, it must NOT have had its firmware updated. This is highly UNlikely if you have already used it, as it will automatically update with an Internet connection.

I would investigate getting/using a router that can handle the VPN for you. Then you do not need to root or change anything on the Chromecast side.

I have the new Chromecast 2020. I wait for a root Method.
Ok i try with a Router for VPN connection.

Thanks for Help
