I just want to apologize to everyone for the delay.  With my house going up for sale, we've been scrambling to get it ready for showing.  I'm still working on the firmware, when I have time.  I just haven't had a lot of it lately.  We are looking at rentals this week, and if we find one,  I should be good to take a breather.

Thankyou lordDavon as we wait patiently, as soon as you have managed to compile the game mapper function into the firmware i would download staright away as your hacked firmware is a much better one than the JXD stock one but the game mapper not working is a deal breaker for me so i would rather wait till its fixed

once again thankyou for your work with this device  :)

The PreBeta that is at the download link has the mapper. :-)

Good morning Lord Davon. I think the easiest and most simple way to solve everyone's problems with the Jxd Singularity S192 is to get the complete either Android Marshmallow or Lollipop Shield Tablet software working on this device

Nvidia Shield Portable Tegra 4 64gb Micro SD

PlayStation 3 320gb

That needs a New bootloader that must be provided by jxd. Tegra devices use a diferentes bootloader according to the Android version. Flashing shield bootloader into the jxd will brick your device. I wouldn't expect jxd providkng anythong, because they no longer Support this device.

Anyhow, anyone can try it. Shield tablet is open source.

I'm giving a new version to Elronza to test, and make sure the battery issues is fixed.  The new version already has Shield Hub installed.  Right now it is a merger of the original JXD firmware, and all of their patches.  I am cleaning things up, and will get it ready for release.  If Elronza verifies the battery fix is intact, I will have a new version to release soon.

I've uploaded the latest Beta version.  I'd like to get a test and see if the charging issue is fixed.  This is basically a firmware that includes all of JXDs patches, the Shield Tablet's 4.4.2 build.prop and a root test (which didn't work).  This is done using my new way of doing the firmware, and I hope to be using this in the future.

I uploaded this to get a wider test of the battery fix, to make sure it is working for everyone.

The joystick is fully functional in both gamestream/geforce NOW/emulators and Android games?

If it is in the original firmware, then it is in this one.  I used the original JXD firmware as the base. :-)

I've just installed the beta and everything so far seems good.

One question though, with the build prop being based off a Shield Tablet, should that fool Google Play in to thinking its a Shield Tablet, and thus being able to purcahase games such Half Life 2 and Borderlands 2 as it still does not :(

Or is it just wishful thinking.

It sends more than just the build.prop info.  There is an installed app listing, OpenGL version, and more.  I am slowly trying to get it all sent.  When I was testing, using the build.prop from the Shield Tablet didn't seem to hurt anything, so I just left it.

Ah, okay, thanks for that.  I look forward to any progress you might be able to make with this :)

Thank you for testing.  Since I don't have all the changes I want in it, I consider it a beta.  It should be very stable though.

I need to find the last Shield Hub that was installable before they locked it to 5.0+ and get that updated.  A little dissapointing, since I love using my JXD S192 with Geforce Now and Gamestream.  I just hope it doesn't get blocked.

Hi all,

I've been following the S192 threads on here for a while - I've been one of the fortunate ones (touch wood) so far, as I've not come across the many issues detailed in said threads with my S192.

So, a little late with my contribution, but I have the lastest Shield Hub (4.12.20965591) that I got off my Shield Portable before the last update which now, I suspect, is for Lollipop or newer only as the package won't install on the S192 anymore.

If you want the APK, I can give you a copy?

The S192 K1 looks like it's being abandoned by JXD - but personally, I love it. And would love to see some TLC thrown in it's way. I'm not versed in all the dev stuff, but if I can contribute somehow I will :)

Fyi (you might already be aware of it) for gamestream, I find Moonlight (root version) much better than shield hub itself, with a typically lower latency at 1080p 60fps setting. I didn't continue my subscription with Geforce Now after the free 3 months trial, so I can't really comment on that.

Hi Kenneth.  I've tried the latest Sheild Hub (4.13.21096871), but it doesn't install on 4.4 (tuned for 5.0+ I believe).  If 4.12.20965591 is installable, I will give it a try and merge it into the ROM.  Have you tried 4.12.20977108 yet?
