06 Feb 2017: As announced, I'll close this device index thread for the time being. In addition and for more information, check this post.
11 Dec 2016: After almost 3.5 years, the development and modifications for this device is barely existent anymore. I decided to do one more update maybe in January and let this thread retire.
21 Apr 2014: Chromecast is also available in Europe countries, like Germany. Unfortunately, but as expected, not rootable (yet).

03 Feb 2014: Google Chromecast SDK Now Available to Developers, More Supported Apps to Come!
12 Jan 2014: All XDA internal links of the first two posts should be encrypted now (We want HTTPS on XDA!).
12 Dec 2013: The latest update also was discussed on the XDA portal.
11 Dec 2013: Added a pretty big FAQ from @bhiga for this small device.
18 Nov 2013: Team Eureka does not only take over maintenance of FlashCast, PwnedCast, and KyoCast - they also have some giveaways.
15 Oct 2013: Any other threads to be added in this index? Let me know.
20 Sep 2013: Added a new video from Google, also a link to the newest Chromecast update announcement to build 13300.
01 Aug 2013: Added a video section. Also, thanks to all of you for the links. This is very helpful, don't stop, hehe.
28 Jul 2013: First day of this index. Please everybody help to keep this up to date and post or send a PM to add new threads. As long as this
device is not available in my country, I hope for your help. Thank you very much!

I forgot your favorite Google Chromecast thread, forgot to update a thread or a thread is misplaced/unnecessary? I'm sorry. Please send me a PM or post it in the thread. I'll fix that. :)

Warning: Only apply compatible treatment to your device. Make sure you don't get into trouble. After all it would be your mistake. Not the developer, XDA or I am in charge, only you.

Awesome thread. Hoppefully you'll get a pin soon. Thanks! :D

Thank you. As usual, I need help from the community, to keep this community relevant thread up to date or fill it for the beginning. Maybe @MikeChannon can pin this thread if he has some spare time.

If you find any helpful thread, post it, thank you! :)

anyone have a compatibility list?

My chromecast will not work with my current network configuration.

Very good, thanks, added :)

If you could add this spreadsheet thats tracking supported and rumored/announced apps that would be great.


I really hope this will be kept up to date. Thanks.

Unfortunately Koush sees there issues with terms of the SDK afaik. So with the beta version of the SDK we probably won't see the apk. After Google changed the terms, he surely will release another great app :)

My chromecast will not work with my current network configuration.

Problem solved or still existent? I cannot really help, still no Chromecast available here... :(

Great info. Thanks so much. :victory::victory::victory:

Thanks, I really like those information as well - would be better, when I finally can catch a device, hehe.

Sure? What's about this Google Play app Chromecast by Google Inc.? I don't know... is there an advantage of your app?


Apr 21, 2012
Ok, added as well. Thank you. :good:

Perhaps you wanna add a link to the apk as well for all us foreigners importing the Chromecast. :) It was posted in this thread, http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2378257
