Tutorial: Restore to Stock Image (Shield TV 2017)

This returns your Shield Android TV (2017; 16GB) to “stock” V7.2.2 with Android 8 (aka Oreo). If your Shield Android TV has a built-in 500GB hard drive and/or a physical power button? This is the wrong tutorial. Check out the Shield Android TV (2015; 16GB) tutorial or the Shield Android TV (Pro; 500GB) 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.  Stock recovery no longer wipes the user partition.

Note: There is no current way to roll back the Shield TV to Nougat (pre-7.0).  If you have a solution, please email me.

    Can this guide be used to downgrade SE 8.0 to SE 7.2.x?

    , looking for root access but stupidly updated my Shield as I bought one recently. Just unsure if it is possible to downgrade to 7.2.x however I see many guides going from 7 to 6.
