    Post Netflix will block rooted users

    I think replacing the launcher is the primary reason people would want to root the shield. It's the only reason I've done it since Leanback is just sort of clunky.

    Post [RECOVERY] [UNOFFICIAL] TWRP - Shield Android TV 2017 & 2015 - All Models

    It worked for me on my Vizio P55! This was an absolute lifesaver. I had rooted about a month ago (I was not aware of your hacked 4k version of TWRP) and ended up borrowing a monitor from work so I could complete the steps since I couldn't get any display on my TV and don't have any other...

    Post 2017 Nvidia Sheild Root Status / FAQ

    No worries, appreciate the responses anyway. Hopefully it just randomly starts working at some point since I don't feel like going through the hassle of returning it. Edit: Just tried a different cord and it worked! So, apparently not all cords provided with the Shield will work with fastboot...

    Post 2017 Nvidia Sheild Root Status / FAQ

    Yeah, directly plugged in with no hub in between. Tried both the cable included in the box and another I had nearby. I might try some other cables I have lying around later today, just for the hell of it.

    Post 2017 Nvidia Sheild Root Status / FAQ

    It's the 2017 model. I triple-checked which USB port to use and definitely had the controller plugged in prior to sending the command to boot to bootloader. I also tried the manual way to boot to fastboot by holding the A+B buttons and unplugging/plugging in the device. No luck, the devices just...

    Post 2017 Nvidia Sheild Root Status / FAQ

    I don't suppose you have any thoughts for what to do on the non-Pro model? I'm having the same issue where the controller doesn't seem to work at all in fastboot (works fine in the Android OS, though) and it just means I'm stuck now since there's no power button.

    Post How to set default launcher on marshmallow update 12/28/15

    I was just trying the non-root method since I'd never gotten around to rooting. I'll go ahead and go with that, though. Thanks!

    I wanted to revert after I upgraded to N just to see what the default launcher was like again. Using the unhide command, I got this error: Any thoughts?

    Post Ok so whats your honest opinion of the chromcast

    They're talking about tab casting, which they do need a tough computer for. Your pc does all the heavy lifting (because it's converting on the fly) when streaming content through Chrome, unlike the official apps that pull content directly from the internet.

    Post Ok so whats your honest opinion of the chromcast

    I have and I'm not a huge fan. I've also used Splashtop, which is handy, but not perfect. I use Yatse for controlling XBMC and, like Netflix w/ Chromecast, all the control/navigation can happen on the tablet before telling your TV what to display which seems to make the most sense to me. I have...

    Post Ok so whats your honest opinion of the chromcast

    I've used an HTPC as my primary mode of content delivery for years and I've been always searching for a better way to completely eliminate the need for a mouse/kb. My remote and tablet both fully XBMC for all the things I download. But my other big source of content has been Netflix, for which...

    Post Horrible battery life

    I usually get about 2 days of usage with 7+ hours of screen time on mine before I worry about plugging it in. I have my brightness at the lowest setting the entire time, which I'm sure helps, but there just doesn't seem to be a need for me to have it any brighter.

    Post NEW Razor M HD

    RAZR M - 4.82 x 2.40 x 0.33 RAZR M HD - 5.15 × 2.52 x 0.35 That's just based on the link you provided, who knows if it's actually legit. That's not a huge phone by any stretch, but I thought it was perfect in its original form. If the screen is truly 4.5, then I figured it would have to be bigger.

    Post NEW Razor M HD

    I feel like the whole reason the RAZR M is awesome (size) is ruined with this "upgrade". It's wider and taller, why not just get a MAXX? The M is the only new phone out these days with good specs that is a manageable size.

    Post Next Nexus should be N8

    You're suggesting Google begin hardware manufacturing without any background or experience in the area? They'd have to start from scratch, which is completely impractical. They have heavy involvement in the design of Nexus devices, but there's no reason they should do the actual manufacturing...

    The Infinity is 0.5mm thinner and 5g lighter. I can't imagine how a human would actually notice that difference.

    Thread [Q] Dumb question about selling

    I feel like an idiot for having to ask this, but I honestly can't find real info on it. I just got the Nexus and decided that I want to stick with my DInc2 for the size. But, when selling it online, what do I do about the LTE SIM? Do I include that, or is that something the buyer has to acquire...

    Post [CM7] Nightlys - No Bug Reports, No Other threads, No Official support

    While I'm not going to defend anyone bitching about a custom ROM that is provided to us free of charge, cell phones are a lot of people's main line of communication to anything and everything, simple or emergency. So yes, they are serious business.

    Post [WARNING] Do NOT update to GB via RUU nor OTA if you want root

    This thread should really no longer be stickied since it's inaccurate info in the title. Any ROM will work, the issue is that you need to root and get S-OFF before you can flash a ROM. You'll want this thread for instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1219246

    Post [WARNING] Do NOT update to GB via RUU nor OTA if you want root

    Very good point. And that makes HTC's promise for unlocked in the future even more impressive because they're going against the carriers. Though, I suppose we shouldn't hold our breath until we actually see the phones arriving unlocked out of the gate.

    Post [WARNING] Do NOT update to GB via RUU nor OTA if you want root

    That makes perfect sense, but phone manufacturers have historically tried to protect themselves. They didn't want to have users complaining about bricked phones and blaming them for it. Also, they get to force people into their unique user experience (Sense, Motoblur, etc.) so that they...

    I actually chose to install the OTA because, after a year of keeping my Eris afloat with ROM updates on a weekly basis, I thought I was ready to have my phone be officially supported and to get a break from constant tweaking. I made a bad decision. :( I'm ready to not constantly be installing...

    Post Need Quick Widget Locker Help

    Anyone come up with a solution to this? I have an Inc2 with the issue. I also have to have a PIN for my Exchange server, so I imagine that's what's causing it. But, it's quite annoying and it'd be nice to have a fix.

    The regularity of shed's updates have spoiled me. I haven't had any big issues with any updates that weren't solved by a full wipe and I've been loving every iteration of the ROM. But, once the SGS2 comes out on VZW I'll be jumping to that. While I'll love having a powerful phone that can do...
