hi mate,start again.either sideload kodi via es file explorer or from the playstore.
do your usual file manager fusion thing.i generally load up config wizard and addon installer.
then i just install config wizard for android and thats you done.
have a good look round youtube google for other...
plenty of alternatives even within the Pho*nix addon
check out metalkettles repo,he has a few good movie addons aswell.
still devastated rockcrusher pulled the plug.understand his reasons and nothing lasts forever.
will be missed,same happened with ****** and we got over that.
has to be a firestick remote,you just go into settings bluetooth and pair the device.think you hold down either the home or play/pause for a few seconds,it pairs very easily and i prefered using it for the few hours I actually used the shield tv.
never had any buffering issues.
got my shield tablet today,up and running and connected to my tv by micro hdmi.no restricted playstore,all my nefarious apks installed without issue.kodi running like my wet dream.
this is how the shield tv should have came out the box.still devastated about that!
you will know from past threads i was desperate for this box so to say i was disappointed was a massive understatement.its capable of so much more and i cant understand why nvidia locked it down like that yet left all other shield devices open.
like yourself i am lucky that the cost is not an...
dont want to come off as a hater as i am a lover of all things nvidia.had both the nvidia shield portable and tablet,even put up with the battery issue.
sold my shield tv yesterday as i had had enough,i wanted an all singing all dancing nvidia experience like my tablet and portable before that...
sounds like its f**cked mate.
get onto amazon for a repacement.if you have tried unplugging it from the power socket and leaving it for ten minutes,if after that its still in bootloop you will need to contact amazon for a replacement.
hi mate,dont bother with the sacrificial app as firestarter allows you to boot into kodi with one press of the home key.once you install firestarter you can map home key to however may clicks you like.i use one press for kodi and two presses for firestick home page
Klit75 is right,there is no way you can brick a stick.
make sure its plugged into the wall and try again.
what i use is a very old version of adbfire to sideload my apks.
best thing to do is sideload firestarter.
open that,update it to latest version if not already then you can load kodi via...
like i said in the other thread,pair an amazon fire stick remote to your shield as it works great.puts the shield to sleep etc.
i got the shield remote as part of the deal but its still lying in the box,just feel the fire stick remote is more intuitive to me.
yes,you can use the firestick remote on the shield as you would on your firestick.
Pair via Settings > Bluetooth. press & hold the 'Home' button on the FIre stick
has to be a fire stick remote.
gonna really sound like a dick here but i am not really struck on the shield tv.
you have to...
i use a firestick remote for my shield.used to its functions.still have the remote that shipped with my shield sitting in the drawer.
dont know if that helps but some people are reluctant to shell out for the nvidia remote.
never really use smart phone apps when i am watching the telly.
yeah mate,google bt smart setup disable.it will walk you through it.got caught out with it at my mates.his firetv was fine but his stick was just an endless cycling loop on addons.
hope that is your issue but its a good start.
