    So, I’ve followed your instructions for rooting the Shield TV 16gb on Marshmallow but no go!!! I downloaded everything you instructed, USB debugging is on but my Windows 10 laptop won’t see the Shield. There’s nothing in Device Manager to show anything remotely resembling Android or Shield and adb command prompt doesn’t pick it up either!!! The only positive thing to come out of it was the authorisation request for the Shield to connect with the PC. It gave a code but I don’t know what to do with it as nothing appears on the laptop regarding the Shield!!

    I thought initially that it could be a dodgy usb cable, but it works with other hardware, and the Shield recognised the PC in order to give me that code. I’ve tried another cable but same results!

    I’ve uninstalled the adb and fastboot, drivers etc. and reinstalled but still no go.

    What could I be doing wrong?
