Custom ROM Now Available for the Google Chromecast

Android is one of the most amazing mobile OSes ever released. The ability to mod and customize the OS so easily gives almost unlimited possibilities. The highly modified and stripped version seem on the Google Chromecast also has some potential. Not too long ago, we presented a custom ROM and recovery for Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Today we want to show another amusing development: a custom ROM for the Google Chromecast.

For those who don’t know what Chromecast is, it is an HDMI media streaming stock. And now, thanks to XDA Senior Member ddggttff3, there is a custom ROM based on the 13300 stock image. It is rooted and even has its own OTA system. Furthermore, it has a dedicated recovery and a custom kernel to enhance the user experience.

If you own a Chromecast and were lucky enough to root before the root-blocking first OTA, head over to the development thread and give PwnedCast ROM a shot.
