Android on TV is not just movies and songs but also millions of apps and games.
This firmware is the stock firmware with full Google Play inside + custom Launcher
For the best interaction with Android from your couch i suggest DroidMote, because with DroidMote multi-touch is not a problem on TV.
My Youtube Playlist:
Based on Nvidia stock firmware 3.2 Marshmallow
Nova launcher as default Launcher https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... w.launcher
Standard Google Play app with all apps installable.
Skype and Hangouts working with an UVC webcam
Stock functionality and hardware accessories supported.
Note: This is the stock firmware with full Google Play inside and custom launcher that you can replace. The base dpi are 220 for better apps resolution and the settings are stock. This firmware is more usable of the stock firmware, but is not full Android. The differences with full Android are that the stock firmware do not have status bar and navigation bar, the lack of multitasking and less permissions, therefore some apps can't request this permissions to the OS and are not compatible. Despite the Nvidia controller have also mouse functionality, the mouse not work on all apps and games and to write text the LeanbackIME is not comfortable, for this reason also for this basic functionality i suggest DroidMote for a better interaction. The Nvidia controller is also not able to do multi touch gestures like multi touch scroll, zoom, rotate and swipe, that are very useful on multi touch apps and games.
If you need everything a real Android device can do, you need Full Android firmware that you can download from the dedicated thread.
I made this firmware only for some users that need the Nvidia controller at all costs, also if in the full Android firmware all standard wireless, wired and bluetooth controller are working very well.
You must start the procedure with the 3.2 stock firmware installed.
Download the StockRestyle firmware from this link: https://goo.gl/HWc7gy
Put the device in fastboot mode:
Connect the Shield Tv to PC via micro usb cable
Enable usb debugging in development settings of Shield TV
In the command prompt of your PC type:
adb reboot bootloader
The bootloader must be unlocked before all others operations with the command:
fastboot oem unlock
When the bootloader is unlocked, In the command prompt type:
1) fastboot flash system system.img
1) fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
2) fastboot -w
3) fastboot reboot
All others parts of the firmware can be stock for now and are already installed.
For the SATV Pro model you can clear the data partition also from TWRP recovery instead of use the fastboot -w command.
To root you can install the last SuperSu.zip from TWRP recovery.
Is not necessary install the TWRP recovery, you can boot it without install with the command fastboot boot twrp.img
