Odd, the above OTA won't flash in TWRP 3.2.0; it says it can't install this package (Thu Nov 16) over newer build (Fri Dec 1). Any idea why? Might be caused by my TWRP?

I had no issue flashing it. I'm using the same ver of twrp. Clear cache then try again or wait for the ota to download to your device normally then install it with twrp. That's how I got the image and installed it.

I flashed TWRP 3.0.2-2 and now everything seems to be flashing fine; apparently one can have a too new TWRP :)

There's some sort of check with TWRP that prevents you flashing the older 5.2 firmware once you are on 5.3. Anyone know how to disable this?

One way to overcome this from what I understand is to use the Images from Nvidia via a fastboot method of flashing from what I have read on the Nvidia forums. I don't want to do this however as I have a pyro tablet off of eBay and don't want to risk bricking the device with the nVidia OTA update that would get deployed. So temporarily I've backed up 5.3 using TWRP and switched over to a Custom Rom. Battery life seems to be pretty much back to normal on a custom Rom.

The main thing not supported is the Nvidia Shield controller, which I don't use very often, but still it will be nice when Nvidia release an updated firmware that fixes the Battery drain issue. Alternatively you can go into Performance Settings and set a custom plan to only use two CPU cores and lower the maximum speed.

Edit: So I figured out how to go back to 5.2. I hacked the Stock 5.1 LTE zip file in the Android Development thread (which doesn't include the 5.2 blob updates - which is what I think was preventing the normal OTA for 5.2 from installing), and replaced its contents with the 5.2 LTE file versions of the system.dat files and boot.img. After flashing, I also flashed the nomoreote.zip to keep my Pyro tablet safe from Nvidia Bricking it.

Seeing if I can upload the .ZIP file somewhere for you.

I tried androidfilehost.com, but it aborted. Will try again tomorrow

It doesn't work, it stays at the nvidia logo... And I think i was at the 5.2, I though I was at the 5.3, I think i want to go back as far as 5.1, thats the one that was working fine for me.

You will have to wipe your data, cache partitions as 5.3 is based on a newer security patch Level, that normally modifies the data partition, so you will have to basically factory reset

    I'd like to start off by thanking the XDA community for getting me started on the path to organizing these files. I noticed that there are a lot of posts scattered here and there with OTA downloads, sideloading, stock recovery images, and the like so I figured I'd attempt to start an all-in-one thread. The goal is to group together anything that is stock (meaning 'from Nvidia'), basic rooting/TWRP, and guides for the mentioned topics. I will gladly maintain this thread as long as there is interest in it, however I will appreciate any feedback. I am, after all, an XDA noob.

    I am not responsible for any damage you cause to your tablet while following these steps. If you brick your tablet, cause it to explode, or your tablet simply decides that you're not worthy of it anymore and runs off to France to be with its mistress, that's on you.

    Thanks to @stanglx for their contribution to the Driver Installation guide.

    Optional Steps


    Flashing a Custom Recovery
    Follow the instructions in 'Basic Setup' as your custom recovery will have been wiped​


    Root Your Device
    You can also use 'adb sideload' to install SuperSU.
    1. Place your desired SuperSU zip somewhere on your device
    2. Reboot into your recovery
    3. Install SuperSU

      For Stock Recovery:


      1. From the main menu, select 'apply update from external SD card'
      2. Navigate to wherever you placed the SuperSU zip and select it
      For TWRP:


      1. From the main menu, select 'Install'
      2. Navigate to wherever you placed the SuperSU zip and select it
      3. Swipe right to begin flashing

      2. Navigate to wherever you placed the SuperSU zip and select it
    4. Reboot after your recovery is finished flashing the zip
    5. You should be rooted once again

    OTAs
    OTAs act as patches, therefore you will keep most, if not all, of your user-related data.
    If you are rooted, you can only flash full OTAs. Incremental OTAs will not find the correct version on your device.

    Flashing via sideload
    This method requires adb/fastboot.
    1. Reboot to your recovery (follow directions in 'Basic Setup')
    2. Have your device enter sideload mode

      3. You should now be in sideload mode
    3. Open a command prompt for ADB on your computer
    4. Enter the command 'adb sideload <filename>'
    5. Reboot when sideloading is complete
    6. You should now be updated

    As NVIDIA still does not want to send me the OTA-Link, i wrote a small bash script in order to "search" the file on the webserver (e.g. try every possible combination) and it worked :)

    Here is the OTA-Full-File for RoW LTE for the first Shield Tablet (not K1!):
    h*t*t*p://ota-downloads.nvidia.com/ota/data/posted-roms_romuploader/external/productionBL-droid-signed-wx_un_do-full_ota-1928188_841.9637.20170202014855.zip
    (Original NVIDIA-Server)

    Can be flashed easily through adb sideload.

    Hope someone as desperate as me will have his fun with the link :)

    Thanks! Wish you made this thread 2 days ago!!! I went crazy finding some of these...

    Some suggestions to add based on my journey.. I have added rough instructions which need to be cleaned up.

    A. I didnt know to get into the stock android recovery. I went crazy thinking my stock recovery was corrupt.. I reloaded, etc. etc. I finally found someone who set me straight.

    Boot into the Boot Loader - Turn unit off. Hold down the down volume then power button.
    Boot into the Nvidia Recovery - While in the boot loader select Recovery Mode. When at the "No Command" screen hold Volume Up and Tap Power.

    B. I had major issues getting ADB to work when in CWM, Nvidia Recovery or PhilZ. but fastboot worked fine while in the bootloader. ADB worked fine while booted in the OS. Just didnt work while in recovery mode (trying to sideload an image).

    Load Nvidia Drivers. There are two drivers that need to load with a single install base. A bootloader driver that is used for Fastboot and the ADB Composite Driver used for ADB while in recovery OR Android OS.

    To install the driver:
    1. Enable Developer Mode on the tablet - Go into About and Tap the Last selection 10 times.
    2. Go Into Developer Mode and enable "Usb Debugging"
    3. Plug the shield tablet into a USB 2.0 port
    4. Go into device manager
    5 Identify the device with an ! next to it. It should say shield tablet OR just a device id
    6 Right mouse click and click update driver software. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
    7. At the "Browse my computer for driver software" screen click Browse. Navigate to the driver folder (which you extracted from a zip) and allow the driver to load.

    To Fix ADB in Recovery or Fastboot driver issues, ADB must first be working while in the Android OS - see above.
    (Generally the Nvidia method will work for fastboot and for ADB while in android OS - but some times ADB fails to be recognized while in recovery) -

    Fastboot:
    1. While connected to the PC Boot the tablet into the boot loader. Go into FastBoot Protocol.
    2. Type the command fastboot devices - if your device lists, its working. If not stay in the boot loader and goto Alternate Driver Load Method below.

    ADB:
    1. While connected to the PC Boot the tablet into the recovery (CWM, Philz, Nvidia). To boot into recovery see instructions above.
    2. While in the recovery navigate to ADB side load for ZIP function and go into that function. The tablet should read waiting for command, or sideload zip, etc. Each recovery is slightly different but similar statement will be made.
    3. Now that the tablet is waiting for an ADB command follow Alternate Driver Load Method:

    Alternate Driver Load Method:
    4. Go into windows device manager. Identify the device with an ! next to it. It should say shield tablet OR just a device id
    5. Right mouse click and click update driver software. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
    6. At the "Browse my computer for driver software" screen click Browse. Click "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".
    10. UNCHECK "Show Compatible Hardware".
    11. Under Manufacturer find and select the category Android. Under Model select ADB Composite Driver (while in Recovery) OR Fastboot Driver (while in the bootloader).
    Profit
