I have been reading through this entire thread for days trying to understand what is necessary for this installation. I have literally no experience moding or flashing or playing around with the innards of any android device, so this is a learning curve for me. What we are trying to accomplish is flashing this zip file directly into the internals of our Shield Tablet to avoid the kill switch.
Now... the problem is that this forum is very squirrely... one person says one thing, another person says another... and when anyone asks for a step by step guide... they get told to read through the whole damn 651 - post thread. I think what we need here is a comprehensive, step by step guide that is attached to the original post (or if not possible, because I don't know the rules of this forum, a new thread) - from the guy who knows exactly what it takes to go from a crisp Y01 Nvidia shield to one with the ability to kill the kill switch. If that's too much work, and you guys know a web site that will tell us EXACTLY what to do, by all means, attach it to the first page.
If you really read through this forum, there are many people (and many more who have not posted) who have just been introduced to moding because they want to save their tablet from the scrap heap. Please, please, please empathize with those who just want to see that a good tablet doesn't go to waste (looking at you, head honcho
). Otherwise I think 70% of this thread will be filled with "obviously" answerable questions and people with real problems that need solving will not get the attention they require.
