Rolling back Shield TV

I’ve been receiving enough emails to warrant a post on the topic of rolling Shield TV back from version x to version x-1.  That is, rolling Oreo back to Nougat.

The bottom line folks; you can’t roll back major versions.  Let me clarify that to our knowledge, you cannot roll back major versions.  I have consulted with my connections at NVidia and they tell me the same thing.  I do not know if this is NVidia or Google that makes these choices (NVidia says it is Google) but I have never successfully rolled back, nor have I had a single user write me back saying they figured out a way to do it either.

If you have successfully rolled Oreo back to Nougat – please notify me.

    It appears to be possible. Instructions are on XDA forums.

      I’m glad people have the option. I’m sure NVidia wouldn’t mess with you if you messed something up – and while they haven’t outright said they would deny warranty requests; I’ve been told this is not an approved process.
