Where are you from?STILL haven't gotten my replacement. It's been over a month, no email, nothing. I've tried calling them and they say they don't have a tracking number for me. This is BULLSH!T.
Dear NVIDIA tablet owner,
We apologize for the delay in sending your replacement SHIELD Tablet.
We are fulfilling claims as quickly as we can, in the order in which they were received. In some cases, we are running behind our target delivery of 2-4 weeks. We’re doing everything we can to accelerate the schedule.
We’ll notify you when your unit ships. In the meantime, should you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
Thanks for your patience.
got the email then a tracking the next day, Canada LTE unit. Not delivered yet as it's stuck at the fedex location awaiting for me...
If the tablet wasn't previously bootloader unlocked before it was killed, I believe it is completely impossible to recover it without Nvidia-prorietary tools. I believe there is some hope for folks that had bootloader-unlocked their devices prior to being killed. There are a few posts of people being able to interact with their tablets but only if the bootloader was unlocked.
Yeah, that seems to be the key. Otherwise you can't even use most fastboot/bootloader commands.
How'd you figure that out, flashing the boot.img?I can't seem to find that thread anymore.. Do you have a link to it? I'm not sure if I got the kill switch or what but my tablet internal memory is coming up as 0mb, but I can get into fastboot and recovery. This was on a stock, bootloader unlocked, custom recover, nomoreota.zip flashed tablet.
I was using the tablet as normal when it froze up, when I hard shut it down and restarted it internal memory was 0mb, so I'm looking for some kind of fix.
UPDATE: seems that everything is ok now.. Must have had something to do with encrypting my tablet recently (why the internal memory is showing up as 0mb). I flashed the boot.img from the 3.1 full ota and was able to boot into android.
How'd you figure that out, flashing the boot.img?

Well I read here "boot.img contains the kernel and ramdisk, critical files necessary to load the device before the filesystem can be mounted." which seemed to be my issue. I was stuck on the nvidia screen at boot,so it seemed to me that my tablet was having trouble mounting the filesystem.
Bog, could you tell us if having cwm or twrp is enough to avoid being killed?
I figure they'd push a blank or messed up bootloader since that would really be the only easy way to kill it. I looked into the ota zip but didn't find much yet. Good to see someone found something, I'm curious about how they decided to do it.
Guys it's a serial kill switch.It's programmed into the boot loader.It's program to kill serial (blank) thru serial (blank).If your serial matches any of the one visits is going to kill your screwed.You need to change serial number,but it might not be enough there all types of hardware identification numbers that tells them which were recalled.All this was registered the minute you signed up for the recalled.Good luck!
You are breaking a deal while making it less appeling for companies to do this type of thing.
