Make sure you have the naked driver installed from this THREAD
first. There is an install guide in the thread describing how to get the driver's configured properly. However I'll try to sum it up. Once you have USB Debugging enabled windows will try finding the driver's but won't be able to, go into device manager and right click the device you need to install the driver for. For the ADB driver right click it and go to Update Driver Software >>> Browse my computer for driver software >>> Click the browse button and find the folder where you have extracted the naked drivers. Hit next, it should scan the folder, find the driver and then install it. For the fastboot driver you need to power your shield off, boot into the bootloader, and then plug your USB Cable in. Windows should look for the driver software and once again, it won't be able to find it. Do the same thing, go to device manager and right click Fastboot and select Update Driver Software. Select Browse my computer for driver software again but this time select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. Highlight Show All Devices and select Next. Select Have Disk at the bottom, and then Browse. Find the Naked Driver folder once again and then select android_winusb.inf and hit Open. Select ok, scroll to the bottom, highlight Nvidia Shield Fastboot, hit Next and accept the warning dialog. The Fastboot driver should now be installed. Extract Shield RAM.zip, open the folder, and all you have to do at this point is double click Shield RAM.exe to start the process. I made this about as simple as it get so someone with no rooting experience should have no problem. Happy Modding!!!
Make sure to have your adb and fastboot driver's installed, start Shield RAM
If you do not know what root is, or have no need to use root, then you probably shouldn't be rooting your shield. I have tested this multiple times, and on multiple different shield units. This tool should be 100% safe however when it comes to flashing/rooting, modifying android device's in general there are certain inherent risks involved. I take no liability towards your device and the harm you could potentially cause to it. By now we should all know the risk involved with rooting, flashing, etc.

Avast wanted to run this in sandbox mode, if yours does the same let it sit for about 20 seconds and then hit continue execution.
Not really sure why it's doing it, I dont think Kwongger's tool tripped my avast.
Minimal ADB and Fastboot - Shimp208
CWM Recovery - Clockworkmod and Agrabren for porting it to the shield
Kwongger - Using his toolkit is what made me want to make my own
