It worked for me having the same latest kitkat OTA that you have......

It does seem like that.. but using SHIELD 1.0.. it worked for me, I'm back on 4.3 update 68 from NVIDIA. Using this mainly for emulators.. I'm sure there will be some type of fix in the near future for kitkat though, when it is, i will update mines back to that...
Ok thats good to know i used fastboot to flash the update 68 files.

Angry you are soo wrong, you arent briked

just set up the ghost drivers on your computer, get fastboot working, download kwonggers toolkit, follow the instructions on screen of your computer to set your shield back to 4.2.2 because the toolkit hasn't been updated and everthing shield is almost as dead as the ouya or worse, so I might just sell the shield from the lack of audience and support and get a bloody snapdragon 801 phone, if NVidia wants to keep this relevant, they need to work with the developer community more, unless shield will die, I have made my choice, now what's yours?

I just got the Shield mainly for emulators, so will stick with 4.22 since that is what the device had out of box. Works great and no need to root or any other hassle for the intended use.
