    I have the Shield TV 16 GB 2017 and was able to root fine the previous two updates, but after this update, I no longer see a device when typing fastboot devices. I tried two different lab tops and as I said before this hasn’t been an issue in the past. I can’t recall, am I supposed to see both adb device and fastboot device in device manager? I see adb device, but not fastboot. Am I truly the only one having an issue with this update? Thank you for any insight you can provide.

    Ok, finally got it to work. The behavior of my laptop was different than all the other times. If I waited long enough while booted into recovery eventually in device manager the fastboot device would show up with the exclamation point. Updated drivers and I was on my way. So either I was just lucky my first few times rooting this device, or the update made things change slightly… either way, I’m rooted now. Thank you
