HUGE [INDEX] Google Chromecast Applications, Tweaks and More (OLDIE BUT GOODIE)


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.
