Bad news. While I've gotten the device fully charged it has a pin code on it which the seller never informed me of, add to this the seller is ignoring my messages and I believe this device is stolen! Man talk about pissed. I've started a PayPal claim against the seller.

Have you tried to see if you can get into the recovery and do a factory reset?

Don't know how? It isn't like the normal Shield Portable and has more in common with Shield Tv.

Not going to waste my time playing with it. I bought what was supposed to be a 100% working prototype not a passcode protected highly likely stolen device I can't use. I want my refund and no parts of this thing.

I had reset a locked phone that I got for my father-in-law and since he didn't get it switched at MetroPCS, he gave it to my daughter when hers broke.  Google tied the device to his account since he logged in, so even though I reset the device and was able to start the setup, Google had it locked to his account and I wasn't able to log into the thing to do the initial setup.

Good evening Sony bro. Unfortunately the slime-ball who sold me this messed up Shield Portable 2 is trying to fight with me with PayPal saying he wants to keep half of what I paid him and I keep this broken Shield and get only half of my money back, to which I said no. So PayPal gave him till Monday the 23rd my Birth-Day to respond. And LordDavon sorry to hear of you having to endure a similar situation with passcodes.

I'm sure PayPal will make sure the outcome is in your favour because the seller is a pure scumbag and scammer.
Anyway, just in case I forget... advance Happy Birthday for Monday, the 23rd of July :)

Worst case, if you don't get a refund you could try to brute force it.
But yeah even if you do manage to brute force it then it's likely that it is stolen... (or do the recovery mode trick as recommended before)
It will be interesting to see what happens next. (although sadly, at the expense of your bank account)

Good luck, it's a shame because it still seems like a nice device.
(i personally don't use google play, i just grab my apps with Yalp Store)

Thank you my friend.

It's LD's birthday today?

It is July 21st.  Turned a young 47.  :-)

It was a pretty good birthday.  My wife made me a nice cake.  My baby boy made me a nice little card, with all the art a 2 year old can do.  My 12 year old daughter got me a farting card.  My 18 year old daughter told me that she is moving out near campus, which I am not very happy about.  I got a new game controller for my PC (Xbox Elite), an electric smoker cabinet (I'm an ameture chef in my spare time so I love anything for cooking), and a new 4K TV for the bedroom (Vizio P55-F1).
