You can also with DroidMote and a regular Android firmware or Android TV firmware.Forgive me for my poor English，Mouse click is not equal to touch，some touch only game can't play with shieldtv&mouse , but fine in Bluestacks with mouse,because bluestacks Simulation a virtual touch input device with the mouse,So it can play all the touch games.

Many people on their couch prefer emulate all hardware just with a phone, because DroidMote emulate real hardware.oh, i don't want use another phone or tablet to play game ，I prefer to play games with the mouse&keyboard, like a PC，Especially some FPS game.
Is not just a question of Leanback Launcher, many others things are different in AndroidTV.First, thank you for the hard work to get full 5.1 running on the Shield TV. Not having the controller work is a deal breaker on this one.
Is there a way to modify the stock image to NOT use leanback launcher by default?
You can use the Shield controller wired and in this way work very well. Or you can use any other bluetooth / wireless controllers.Thank you again for your great work Zulu! I have played around with stock Android TV and definitely see the need for a root and replacement rom experience. It is nice for a simple user who doesn't know the capabilities of Android but for a real power user it is severely lacking!
So I am ready to root. But I have one question before I actually do it - how does the NVIDIA Controller work with it? I understand you have your NVIDIA Controller tethered to your phone and then your phone to NVIDIA shield via Droidmote? Is there any simpler way like connecting it as a bluetooth device? Or would it not work the same?
If I root but not replace the rom will it still work? Frustrating that NVIDIA placed this limitation. Do you use your phone as the main input then for your shield instead of the Remote?

To do ? With Android a simple remote is just useful with some video player app. Instead with DroidMote you can do all.
