Is it possible to downgrade SATV Pro 500GB (2015) from 5.x firmware to 3.x?
I have SATV Pro 500GB (2015) and SATV 16GB ( 2017) with 5.x firmware, I tried using the boot provided in first thread for SATV 16GB ( 2017) with 5.x, it just shown the ubuntu UI but after that it disappear.

Is there any boot image available for 5.x firmware or is there any way to downgrade these devices to 3.x firmware. Thanks

If you have SATV Pro, you should back up your HDD first following this link:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/shi...v-pro-t3440195

Then you can try down grade using ROM 3.x images from the following link:

https://developer.nvidia.com/shield-developer-os-images

According to the following thread, SATV Pro can always be unbricked:

And link to SHDD image of SATV Pro 2015:

Thought "Full Android" was the way to use the Shield, but this is might end up as my prime OS!

Question, are you also not seeing the internal mmc when you run lsblk on the pro 2017 or do i have something weird going on?
