Tutorial: Restore to Stock Image (Shield TV Pro)

This returns your Shield Android TV (Pro; 500GB) to “stock” V6.2 with Android 7 (aka Nougat). If your Shield Android TV doesn’t have a built in 500GB hard drive and/or doesn’t have a power button? This is the wrong tutorial. Check out the Shield Android TV (2015; 16GB) tutorial or the Shield Android TV (2017; 16GB) tutorial.

There are numerous reasons you may wish to do this; mostly if you can’t perform an OTA upgrade after rooting – you may need to return to stock before you can accept the upgrade.

Note: There is no current way to roll back the Shield TV to Marshmallow (pre-5.0).  If you have a solution, please email me.
