Note: The above is still the only one that works best for all 2015, 2017 and PRO models but not without bugs. Always look for one that is confirmed to work in your device model, get the most stable one you can find.
Latest SuperSU ZIP:
*** You MUST start the procedure with the stock firmware Nougat 6.X ALREADY installed. To avoid issues please CLEAN INSTALL this firmware
*** Once your Shield TV 2015 has upgraded to stock Nvidia Android TV Nougat, you CANNOT LONGER DOWNGRADE THE BOOTLOADER (blob file) to Marshmallow or older, otherwise you will HARD BRICK your device. While you DON'T FLASH WRONG BOOTLOADER and be able to boot into fastboot/bootloader mode, your device will be recoverable.
TIP: avoid using flash-all.bat, flash-all.sh and do not flash MM or older OTA packages

- You MUST unlock bootloader before all other operations with the following command:
(if you ever run into an issue do not run "fastboot oem lock" as apparently device can't be unlocked again after that)
fastboot oem unlock
- When the bootloader is unlocked, in the command prompt type:
1) fastboot flash system system.img
2) fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
3) fastboot -w
4) fastboot boot recovery.img --> to boot TWRP recovery and flash SuperSu package. You need a regular mouse.
5) In TWRP go to: Advanced >> ADB sideload and swipe to enable sideload mode
6) adb sideload supersu_package_name.zip
7) Reboot System
For the SATV 500GB Pro model, instead of using fastboot -w to clear data / cache, you can use the TWRP recovery to clear data and cache ( to avoid 2 hours of formatting data, because you have a large HD ).
For all Shield TVs 2015 models (codename "foster") you can skip the steps to boot into TWRP to flash SuperSU in your device if you don't want to root, but, for all 2017 models (codename "darcy") you MUST boot into TWRP to root your device FOR FIRST TIME, otherwise it will be stuck at boot SHOWING A STATIC SPLASH SCREEN WITH AN ERROR MESSAGE "can't verify bootloader" and Nvidia logo... why? because SuperSU modifies boot.img when installed for first time in TWRP, disabling some checks at boot allowing your device to boot to Android normally. Next time you re-flash the same firmware or go back to equivalent version of stock Android TV, there's no needed to flash SuperSU again as boot.img won't be touched unless you upgrade stock Android TV firmware (a.k.a Nvidia Upgrade Experience)
