Shield TV (16Gb; 2017) Root Tutorial Updated

As mentioned, we’ve moved to Magisk (vice SuperSU) for Shield TV rooting.

The 2017 version is a little bit different and required a change in process (using a patched boot image vice installing Magisk in a manner similar to SuperSU).

Please note that the patched boot image approach is not as “generic” as the TWRP approach – and any future update (even minor ones) could break the tutorial – as the boot loader may change with an OTA.

For now? We have a working root solution for you. As always with something new, your reports and issues are crucial to ensure we have everything dialed in for other users. Contact me directly at the link in the upper right sidebar instead of leaving comments. Thanks!
