Eureka-ROM for Your Rooted Google Chromecast
Not too long ago, we talked about KyoCast by XDA Forum Member Kyonz. For those who may not remember, KyoCast allowed users to bypass Google’s predefined whitelist of supported services. It worked by redirecting any requests for whitelist information over to KyoCast servers, where various third party services and applications are allowed.
Now as Kyocast support is drawing to a close, a fantastic replacement has emerged in the form of Eureka-ROM for the Google Chromecast. The work comes from the aptly titled Team-Eureka (consisting of XDA Forum Members Kyonz and tchebb, and Recognized Contributorddggttf3), and it is based on the 14975 stock build, but with additional features. This builds from their previous release entitled PwnedCast, but with additional goodies.
So far, the ROM features quite a healthy features list, including disabled OTAs, modified DNS servers, root access, custom OTA engine, and of course, custom whitelisting. There’s even a web-based control panel, where you can get device info, enable or disable the OTA system, select your whitelist provider, enable or disable content services, use custom DNS servers, and more.
In order to get going, you need to first install the previously covered FlashCast. From there, you simply include the latest 1.1 version of Eureka-ROM on your FlashCast USB drive and proceed like normal. After about 9 minutes, you can genuinely proclaim, “Eureka!”

Each year, smartphone makers attempt to one-up each other in features and specs, but time and again these improvements feel incremental rather than revolutionary. Samsung hopes to break this trend with a new hardware and software design philosophy, and press details of the new-and-improved cameras shared by the S6 and S6 Edge show that they are off to a great start. Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
