Concerning the recommendation to update to build 16664; is it because there's nothing to exploit in earlier versions, or is it just that the current tools only will work with 16664 or higher?
I'm abroad right now, brought my CC just in case something like this was announced, wondering if I should update it via mobile broadband despite the heavy roaming fees, or take a gamble that a tool working with lower build numbers will be released later.

From what I know about the Teensy, I would be very suprised if there was no programming of the Teensy involved.Is it safe to say that the Video posted does not contain ALL the steps needed to root the device as I suspect some software must be loaded to the Teensy first for it to do it's Magic?
(not asking for details here the fewer the better until you make an actual release just trying to wrap my head around the Teensy since it's a new device to me.)
And just a fair warning to others who want to do this and/or are waiting for a Teensy to arrive...
If you already have the right version OS on CCast you really should Unplug it until you have achieved Root because Google Devs knowing the Teensy is part of the key to this might find some way to plug it up while we wait...
Better safe than sorry!
Yes they have a vested interest in keeping the unit as locked down as possible because the content providers are scared to death of Piracy. If they think the device is not secure they could refuse to support the device which would limit it's usefulness (and sales) in the long run.
