Bootloader exploit for Chromcast demoed on video

chromecast bootloader hack
The guys over at GTVHacker have given the Chromecast the boot and by that we means they have exploited the bootloader. While it’s still early days for the exploit and for Chromecast itself, the future for the device is obvisouly going to involve some ideas from the hacking community. GTVHacker also reported that the device is not actually running a version of Chrome OS and is more like a modified version of ¬†Google TV. Anyway, check out the video below to see the exploit in action and/or head over to the source link to try it yourself, assuming you have the new Chromecast device.
