Great work guys. I got the apk installed but how do I install magisk to system since I can not boot a patch boot img and do i need to unlock my bootloader for this?
I got to the same point as you was able to use my applications which require root. And as long as the shield keeps running everything's runs fine. A shield with root is much better ?
i noticed when i locked bl while modified and rooted with vbmeta disabled it said red corrupt screen due to "no os".. oem unlocked and it booted again.. i kno this might b different but implying that could be a verty/verification issue or something we need to disable?Hey look, a recovery image. That really helps with some of the stuff I do. Wish they'd uploaded one for sif too, but oh well. Maybe eventually.
Fwiw, /system will not mount directly, this is expected. Since the newer versions use system as root, the system partition mounts to /system_root and /system is a symlink to /system_root/system. I've seen some errors about unable to mount /system myself, but it's never seemed to actually break anything.
we just need a working twrp now haha.. twrp is broken atm.. experimental version is having trouble mounting system so zips are failing and older twrp mouse/keyboard not working so cant swipe when it loads..
@rootfan Tried your release a couple of times, started the shield with twrp experimental and mounted system_root and is symlink to system.
nice! I just got it set up nicely. ill update to official magisk tho next update so i can continue to get the updates lol..@elliwigy, I notified the Magisk developers about the specific issue and it has been addressed so the next release of Magisk should just work on 2015 and 2017 shields and on 2019 shields with the steps you provided. You'll need to uninstall the Magisk Manager app and flash the Magisk uninstaller package first though before installing the next release if you installed the zip I provided as there's a problem with going from unofficial to official releases.
Wow, you found out a lot of things in the last day or so.nice! I just got it set up nicely. ill update to official magisk tho next update so i can continue to get the updates lol..
for now im just using a props module that sets bootstate to orange so it boots.. i also set foxy boot so i can actually see the boot log.. this way i can see y its not booting lol..
also, if anyone cares.. i also used the props tool in magisk and set the fingerprint to shield tv 2017 pie and was able to install and set up/use disney+.. i then set the fingerprint back to default and disney+ still works! so this is a workaround until nvidia fixes it on later builds..
also for you nstv 2017 owners not sure but maybe changing the fingerprint will pull the 2019 update lol.. dunno if itll flash or what but when i changed my 2019 to 2017 fingerprint it prompted to update to pie 2017 firmware.. dont think itd b much different tho than trying to flash the firmware in fastboot.. i no longer have a 2017 model..
