At first a little background story:

I bought the Tablet 3 Month ago. I have got the Update to Android 6.0 in January and unfortunately, I
applied it.

So If you don't want to apply a custom rom do not update to 6.0, because 5.1.1 is much better.

I am not responsible if anything goes wrong.

Ok, so let's get started:

At first you must install Minimal ADB and Fastboot on your PC/Laptop/Mac.

Windows: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho....php?t=2588979

Linux/Mac: http://rootmygalaxy.net/install-adb-...-mac-or-linux/

Here is the link for all OSs: http://lifehacker.com/the-easiest-wa...-to-1586992378

Before you can Root or flash a Custom Rom you must flash the recovery:

You will need:

 Nvidia Family Drivers(Extract it in a folder of your choice):


http://nvidiashieldzone.com/files/sh...milydriver.zip
 As many of you are experiencing problems with my previously mentioned TWRP 2.8.7.3 version I
am replacing the link with the official TWRP Shield Tablet Download Site. Just take the newest
stable version: https://dl.twrp.me/shieldtablet/ (Put the file into the ADB+Fastboot Folder)
 TWRP 2.8.7.3 Recovery(Put the file into the ADB+Fastboot Folder): Download URL:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24269982087009777

Xposed Framework

Download the Xposed Framework Zip file, take the newest version:

developers.com/andr...droid-t3103027

Please Leave a post if you are getting errors or something isn't clearly explained! And if I could help you,
consider giving me a Thanks

Troubleshoot

If you are stuck in a Bootloop:

Without data loss(e.g. when you installed Xposed framework zip and its stuck in a bootloop)

1. flash the stock rom boot image BUT ONLY IF YOU DONT USE A CUSTOM ROM (it will probably loose
root). go to https://developer.nvidia.com/gamewor...itional,shield and download the latest NVIDIA
SHIELD Tablet K1 Recovery OS Image

2. Unpack the zip file and flash it to your Tablet

Code:

fastboot flash boot boot.img

If something went wrong while flashing a custom rom (after that you will need to flash the custom/stock
rom again)
wipe the /data partition. It could be encrypted from the previous rom. Be aware that you need to
reinstall the rom, therefore loose all your data. Troubleshot guide by agentbob123

My tablet just keeps rebooting to the lock screen whenever I try to go to recovery mode... Somehow
twrp doesn't stick... It did when I was on Lollipop. I have already tried to flash the recovery, do a full
reboot before trying to get in twrp but without success.

Try other TWRP versions like 2.8.7.0 or 2.8.7.1 i think the 3.0.0.0 is for Andoid 6.0 devices so if you are
currently in the newest version of the Android OS try this one out

The 3.0 versionof TWRP was unstabel on my device so you should flash it wipe the storage and flash one
of the older ones

Try your normal command line for flashing recovery except change flash to boot. It doesn't flash it, just
boots to it.

In other words, if you are using:

1. Fastboot Flash recovery recoveryname.img

Do instead:

2. Fastboot boot recovery recoveryname.img


While in recovery (make sure the supersu zip is on the sd card or wherever you normally flash files from
first) flash supersu. You should now be rooted but without a recovery.

Go then to delete the file and then reboot, flash the recovery as normal (#1), reboot and then it should
be good to go. It was for me.

Thank you for the awesome guide. Besides deleting the TegraOTA apk, is there any other app/service
that I should disable to prevent OTA updates?
