Root has been achieved on Android 7.0 Nougat (Shield TV)

Thanks to the brilliant folks at XDA, a root solution has been executed on the Shield TV (2015) running v5.01 (Android 7.0 Nougat).

If you are of adequate skill and don’t mind dealing with technical matters, you can jump over to XDA and check out the progress there.

Otherwise, we’ll have our tutorial out later tonight.

Remember, you’re going to need a Male to Male USB 3.0 cable to access ADB/Fastboot on Shield TV 2017.  You probably don’t have one; I sure didn’t.  Check our FAQ for more info, links to purchase, etc.
