Manual update to Shield TV Oreo

Update: I have tested this with my Shield TV (16GB; 2015) successfully.  Our root tutorials continue to work.

NVidia has released the 7.0.1 Shield TV Recovery Images.

This means if you know what you’re doing, you can use these Recovery Images to upgrade your Android 6.x Shield TV to Android 7.0.1 without waiting for the OTA to hit.  Note: These are linked via Google Drive, so you will get a pop up from Drive regarding the inability to scan for viruses.

I have tested these with my Shield TV Pro (500GB) unit and was successful in upgrading to Android 7.0.1:

Again, if you know what you’re doing, grab the appropriate Shield TV Recovery Image below.  You can use our tutorials for Stock Recovery for your particular device.

Stock Recovery will not erase your installed files/data.

OFFICIAL tutorials, etc. will be released later this weekend for those that need a little more help.

Please do not attempt to do this if you are not comfortable with it.

    Hi, I flashed the stock rom 7.0.1 with fastboot but Shield is stucked at loading screen (the circles animation). I did everything a second time and the result is the same. Fortunately adb is still working. Any advice? Thanks
