Default Update fails to install

I tried to install the new update but on the install screen it says failed to verify and asks if i want to install anyways.
I choose yes and it errors out saying the update is for device "roth" and i have device "thor"
Does ayone know a workaround for this?

Have you messed with any system files or changed out the recovery or anything like that? I assume the Shield is going to look to make sure the system is all intact before allowing the update. Though the fact it says Roth which is a spelling error of Thor seems weird. Mine updated fine...

If you can find the update using root explorer you could delete it and redownload it.

I unlocked bootloader, installed cwm, and rooted using Kwonggers toolkit.

OTAs will commonly fail if you install custom recovery. You'll have to wait for someone to make it into a zip that you can run through CWM.

You probably still have CWM installed, to install an OTA you must first go back to the stock recovery. You can download it from here: http://goo.im/devs/agrabren/shield/o...s/recovery.img

Put that file in your ADB folder

To flash it, connect to usb and enable ADB debugging.
on PC type:

adb reboot bootloader

-Wait to reboot-

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

-Now you have stock recovery installed-

Reboot the shield normally and install the OTA update, it should work.

Your bootloader is still unlocked, but you don't have root.

To install CWM, just follow the same instructions but replace the stock image with the CWM recovery image. You can download that here: http://goo.im/devs/agrabren/shield/cwm/recovery.img

The shield will be unrooted when you update. To root, simply flash CWM and reboot. CWM will ask you if you want to disable Stock reflashing, and if you want to root.
You may also need to flash the real SU zip from here: http://download.chainfire.eu/396/Sup...etrieve_file=1

For me, I was not able to let the SU app install the binary's alone, (Normal, or CWM method) I had to flash the SU zip.
But the update is smooth, and everything is working. Just no SD write support obviously.

I tried this but it wouldn't download the ota again an I couldn't find where it was. So, I tried going back to stock to update but now it is stuck on the boot screen. I tried downloading a newer factory image from the nvidia website but now all of the windows links are locked behind some developer program that I have to make an account, submit an application, and wait for approval. Do you have any links to a recent factory restore image?

EDIT: I ended up just downloading mint and the linux .sh file to get the factory images.

You can use the root toolbox on this forum to reflash stock and relock and fix it

If some updates please capture the OTA zip that downloads and upload it for us to tear apart.
