I have no problem upgrading to marshmallow, but you never recommended that I should until now. In fact quite the opposite.

not realy,if you have read some previous pages . you should have seen about the downgrade issue.
you said you downgraded and everything was normal and you was fine.
you downgraded without asking too but you do what you want with your device.
reacting to your comment i thinked,no need to break something that is not broken.
i even said "no help needed"

advice,document yourself first and read.
poeple will not allways document you all the time and do stuff for you.
especialy if you behave like you dont need help and does things yourself .
it is your device after all.

Back to Android TV Marshmallow

Hello,
I successfully installed v.2.2 a while ago. Its nice, I also installed "Top TV Launcher" which worked like a charm.

I want to go back now to the Marshmallow Google TV and try to install "Top TV Launcher" on it. I mainly use Kodi and I want the controller to work over wireless.

What is the procedure to go back to the NVIDIA Google TV boot?

Thanks,
Benny

    UPDATE:

    For now i see a good signal from Nvidia to me :)
    The source was published. Now with many work, i must see what i can do.
    ( if a good full android 6 is possible, i need at least 8 days of very hard work )


    THANKS NVIDIA



    P.S.
    I think that the Android TV development must be built on top of the standard Android with specific launcher and specific apps that you can download from Google Play. Change the OS is really a bad thing for everybody. We can't force users in a direction or in another direction. The users must be able to choose.

    No one can imagine how many work i'm doing. From 7 of morning to the 3 of morning every day without interruption. Only 15 minutes for the lunch. I already known that Nvidia would make the best effort to block me, but i want full Android 6 and no one can stop me. If i reach this other miracle, i want the Nvidia developers here for the compliments :)

    The work on full Android 6 is more difficult than full Android 5.1, Nvidia has studied my moves, but i will reach my dream.

    P.S.
    I want something perfect.
    Because is simple create a firmware without the stock video 4k decode, special audio, 3D graphic, vulkan, no drm etc.
    The source code published have quite nothing inside, all the best parts are only inside the stock firmware and private.

    For this reason in Internet there is this video, now i understand better the words of Linus Torvalds:

    Hi Zulu, I think I saw someone get a bit of hate for this suggestion with your Nexus Player LolliRock ROM but is it possible to install the Leanback Launcher onto this full Android ROM and emulate most of the Android TV experience? My reason would be that I want the freedom of the full Play Store app and settings but I do like the Android TV interface for use from my couch.
    Also, presumably this requires an unlocked bootloader but not root because I've been struggling to root my 16 GB model.

    Thanks for your work.

    Sure that you can. The leanback launcher is a stupid launcher like others but just a little more stupid because not support mouse. But you can start Android TV apps also without leanback launcher. http://www.apkmirror.com/?s=leanback+launcher&post_type=apps_post

    You can start the leanback launcher also like an app if you create a shortcut like in this video https://youtu.be/NMqz8e33oq8 So when you install Android TV apps, you can have all in one bad place that is the leanback launcher. Without create a shortcut for every Android TV app. ( 10 in total :) )
    I prferer Googl Now Launcher.

    People not understand that you need just more accessibility on apps and this depend from developers.
    You can control an app with a mouse, dpad or controller if a developer want this.
    After that you can use Android, Android TV or also Android NOOB.

    One thing is sure, Android TV is limited on purpose and you can't have all apps from Google Play.
    The 320 dpi in build.prop is not compatible with many beautiful apps also if you sideload.
    Every standard app is better and faster than the leanback version. Try standard youtube and leanback youtube to understand.
    For me the life is too short to waste time with directional keys. I never used a classic Smart TV for this reason and all my TV are Smart TV.

    For this reason i like full Android.

    You think that if Android TV was better than Android I lose most of my free time to build these firmware ? I'm not so stupid.

    But do not worry i appreciate and respect the requests of all
