I haven't tried 4.12.20977108 - I was on 4.12.20965591 on my Shield Portable then the next update went straight to 4.13.21096871.

I've got 4.12.20965591 installed on my S192 right now and when you go into SETTINGS -> ABOUT it doesn't say there is an update available anymore, where as previous versions did. So I can only assume this is probably the last/latest version of Shield Hub compatible with KitKat 4.4.2.

I'm dealing with the move this week, but things will be settling down early next week.  I'll test that version and if it installs, I will merge it into the ROM.

So glad I found this forum today. I got my S192 charging now and gonna flash this as soon as it's charged. Thanks for putting time into this, I wasn't sure if anyone was gonna do any mods or firmware for this device.

LordDavin if you have PayPal please let me know and I will donate a little cash for your efforts.

I appreciate the offer.  For now, just test the firmware and let me know if you find any issues.  That'd be awesome! 

Firmware should be pretty stable.  I'm moving today and tomorrow, and unpacking the next few days.  Will most likely be releasing a new firmware again next week.

I finally installed the beta the other night, and had been waiting for my GTX 1060 to arrive.  After installing my Graphics card, and testing the S192, I can say that this firmware works really well.  I had some overheating issues the first day and a half, but after resetting and wiping everything after install, that issue went away.  Last night I was able to stream FallOut 4 to my S192, and it played flawlessly.

I can confirm that all of my shield exclusive games that i purchased in the past for my Shield portable and my shield tablet still show as not compatible with the S192.  Otherwise everything works really well.  It appears that the battery usage during standby, is greatly improved.  My S192 sat for two days untouched and lost only about 2 percent battery life.

Thanks for the hard work you put into this.  This weekend the kids will be at the in-laws, so I can game until my thumbs bleed, and it will give me plenty of time to test this firmware.  I look forward to updates.

Thank you for testing it out.  I've been moving, so I haven't had much of a chance to continue work on the next version.  Things are starting to settle now, so I may be able to get some work done tomorrow.

Hey LordDavon,

I have been lurking here for quite a while now and really admire your work.

What benefits does this new firmware bring to the table in terms of functionality and proven fixes?

Any plans to upgrade JXD firmware to a newer version of Android?

The ability to trick app stores into recognising the Nvidia Tegra K1 chipset and allowing it to purchase exclusive games (for this chipset) would prove ground breaking, allowing all owners to enjoy their devices for its intended purpose - If you can achieve this you will officially be known as Lord LordDavon  8)

This firmware is a combination of all of the fixes released from JXD (including battery fix and ShieldHub).  I've also cleaned up the desktop icons.

In order to upgrade the Android version, we would need an updated bootloader.  I've been offered a S192 with some issues, which if I can fix, I can use for bootloader testing.

We don't know if the any of the Shield Tablet boot loaders will work.  Something I will have to test.

All of the install instructions are on the first post: http://boards.dingoonity.org/jxd-devices/lorddavon's-s192-hackware/

This isn't the recovery or bootloader.  This is just the firmware.  While there is always a risk to everything, it is pretty hard to brick these with the firmware flashes.  As long as your device is healthy, you can always reflash from a bad flash.

sorry my bad English, I use the translator goolge.
I already have your firmware, but I want to install the CWM. I dispose of the cwm of the shield tablet, and wanted to know if I can try to install it, or is no possibility of of no return brick?

It may be possible to come back from it, if it kills the device.  I'm not sure yet.

I have a problem, even with its custom rom. % of the battery does not rise.
if the charge arrive at full load, but stays at 13% for example, and after this 7h or 8h at 13%, and when it reaches the 13%, begins to drop.
not if I explain.
on your custom rom with the battery fix JXD, there are problems battery? or this all sorted out?

The battery issue is fixed in the custom ROM.

Not sure.  If you are on the latest Beta, it shouldn't be a software issue.  You may want to download and reflash, then just put it down to charge and see if that takes care of the issue.
