It worked!!!! By the God's!!!! On ota 2.2.1!!! I don't have access to a PC and when I got to one it was xp and didn't work on adb, after a catastrophic recovery fail. I got lucky and got a full ota to flash in nvidias stock recovery but ended up with no root. I thought I was gonna be stuck for a month until family visited with a laptop.... This worked enough to use flashify !!! Thanks for the heads up

Worked for me too.

First three times the operation was unsucessful and the tablet rebooted itself, but then I remember to activate USB depuration and that was it! Rooted at Last.

Yes, USB debugging was on. It rebooted and I kept trying. After I don't know how many times it finally worked! Lol. Never changed anything. It's rooted now and TWRP is up and running with super su beta installed.

I tried 4.1 and 4.0.5 and both failed at ~20% (tablet reboots). After many attempts I tried it with KingRoot PC and it failed also.
(I have the SHIELD Tablet WiFi version with 5.1 (OTA 3.0) installed.

Do I need to wait for a better root method or is there another way for 5.1?

I had the same problem with KingRoot 4.1 on the Shield Tablet 5.1 and I made sure no Anti-Virus was running and tried it MANY times with a lot of reboots. I would clean the cache and data and stop the app in between fails. I just kept trying and then one time it worked. Not sure why it takes awhile other than it hooks to the server and looks for a way to root the tablet. I finally got mine rooted and TWRP installed and now have Super SU installed. Used root uninstaller to remove KingUser.

have any1 tried to replace KingUser with SuperSU, as in the post it says:
5. Install SuperSu to replace KingUser may be cause some unknown error, although you do can do this.

But i want to know if any1 have tried this...

Thanks.
