you can flash the new OTA but will always have to follow the directions in the OP every time you update to remove TegraOTA to prevent the killswitch.

Hell, really? Well, okay. Thanks, man.

just keep in mind you do not want your tablet to connect to the internet until after you have safely removed the killswitch mechanism.

best way:

flash the update from recovery
reboot directly into recovery (to prevent possible mounting errors after the update)
flash the zip in the OP
confirm TegraOTA is gone using the recovery file manager.
boot system like normal.
enjoy!

I rather delete it directly from Solid Explorer than using the Flashable zip. In any case, since i have unlocked the bootloader, i could mount any image i want even if this is "killed"

you can use any method you like as long as you are sure it never connects to the net in the process.

right after i bought my pre-owned shield tablet (y01), a random combination of letters and numbers, appear automatically downloading to my tablet.. and my instinct told me to immediately force stop the download manager or there's a chance to say goodbye to my pre-owned tablet.. after i flash the nomoreota.zip, no more random downloading stuff happened afterwards..

I did as instructed, and then turned on my new tablet. Old tablet still functional.

Then I kept checking for the urgent ST - yy OTA update. Today it finally appeared, and my old tablet is still functional.

Thanks a whole bunch!

Hi,

It's possible with this solution ?
http://forum.xda-developers.com/shie...3#post62305413

It's possible that my tablet will reboot with power + volume down (recovery mode)

Thanks

@CM17X

There is no current protocol for recovery if the tablet is "killed"

What is that random combination of letters and numbers that automatically downloaded by my tablet? Does anyone also experienced this? it is a .unity3d file. What is it? is part of the killswitch process or not? If not, why is it automatically downloading without my permission and i have no option to stop it unless i force stop the download manager, can someone enlighten me please? thank you
