Category Archives: Site Updates

We’re back!

Sorry about the lag in news and info.  The site has been the target of WordPress hackers and I’ve been working with the hosting company to put in stronger security.

We’ll get caught up in a day or two.  Thanks for stickin’ with us.

Replaced Shield Tablet K1 OTA 1.3 Image

Sorry for the mix up.  The Shield Tablet K1 OTA Full 1.3 Image should now be proper.  8b237ac14e07b890d09f089a7c3fcf3d is the MD5, 678MB.

Updates to the Website

Just a quick note to let everyone know I’ve been working on the website.  I’m replacing direct download links with MD5 hashed file downloads.  Be on the lookout for any broken links and please report them.

I’m also overhauling the older tutorials to follow the same format as the newer tutorials.  I’m also trying to tidy them up so that some information is collapsed to keep it out of the way.

Hope you enjoy the updates!

Updates on NVidia Shield Zone!

We have had a busy weekend here at NSZ.  We’ve been busily refreshing our content to match the latest updates across all Shield devices.  We’ve updated existing tutorials on rooting and added new tutorials including how to update manually without data loss – and how to restore your device to stock.

Remember, we’ve done every one of these several times – and we take you through everything; even the stuff other tutorials leave out.

We’ve also been busy adding GenrePacks to the Arc Browser app’s download page.  Fresh and new include GBA, TG-16 and N64 packs.

Along with what you SEE – we’ve been working on a lot of things you cannot see.  NSZ was a merger between all our Android sites including Green Robot Gamer, the old Shield Zone, Android Emulation Zone, etc.  We’re porting over content, fixing broken links, tweaking WordPress; all that fun stuff the site monkeys have to do.

As always, we’re pleased to have you here and look forward to being your Shield Device Utopia.
