So, I've been doing some testing and long story short: Pie for shield TV sucks. GSI images are all worthless. They all come from the same source, so they'll have the same limitations as Zulu's Pie plus a few more (the ones that Zulu solved). So, let's downgrade to Oreo, right? Wrong. The moment you try to do it, the box (2017 model) won't boot anything, not even stock Pie, until you manually flash a bootloader. So, in order to downgrade to Oreo, you'll have to manually downgrade the bootloader. Don't want to take the risk and prefer to stay on Pie? Manually flash Pie bootloader... I'm on developer Pie, now, which is a wonderful piece of s... I'll probably flash Zulu's Pie, now, because I've already bricked a box, flashing the bootloader, and I don't want to take the risk of manually downgrade the bootloader.

I was finally able to downgrade to Oreo and I couldn't be happier. Everything works again. Picky, picky, picky little box...

I don't want to take away from what Zulu is doing here with his Roms, but there now is a way to Root the Stock Firmware if on Pie over on xda if you know where to look. Can confirm it works as I got Magisk installed and modules installing with no issues. Look up the user rootfan. Has files for both 2015 and 2017 models. You will need a Male to Male USB cable and basic knowledge of adb and fastboot commands. Took all of 5 minutes to get the Shield Pie firmware rooted. Also will need a Mouse as you need to flash a zip through twrp.

Interesting, and nice, for some, but the whole point of Zulu's roms is the far wider range of apps and functionality that full android offers.

Root is fundamental. Without root there's no Pie. But I will only leave Oreo when (or if) there is a similar experience with Pie.

you can edit the build.prop and add

Code: Select all

qemu.hw.mainkeys = 0



Looks as though I can't just edit the build prop the old fashion way with a file explorer. Do you have a walk through for me on what I need to do to add this code to the build.prop file? Thanks


in the second post you can find how to mount the system partition read and write. when system partition is read / write you can use file explorer to edit the build.prop
