I'm interested on having this working on my shield (when it arrives).
Quick question, at the moment i want to leave the shield stock for many reasons, so i wanted to ask if this can work on Android TV OS or if it's meant just for your full android rom. I need to install Java and run filebot, jDownloader and few other apps in the long term. Crossing fingers!!!
Oh i almost forgot, now that im here I'll ask... Have you been succesfull remote controlling your Shield say with teamviewer, if so what app version worked for you?
Thank you in advance and greetings for South America!
You need the custom boot.img and the LXC binaries, after you can use full Android or also Android TV.
Attention all my works are for the original Shield TV.
The new 16GB model don't have micro usb and i not even know if we can unlock the bootloader.
I control Shield TV only with DroidMote, is the best way for me, for Android TV and full Android. I never tested teamviewer.
Thank you for the warning zulu99. The one i purchased was the 1st gen like 3 weeks ago from their web page (i was stuck at the pc screen refreshing the page each 5 minutes or so until i finally saw them in stock xD).
So the boot image and binaries you posted in first post will work on LATEST marshmallow firmware of Android TV?. By the way i read that nvidia may release an update for 1st gen shields with android nougat and official Amazon video app. Who knows but maybe when my shield arrives i will get the update so i would like to be sure which firmware versions this project will work with.
Thank you in advance!
