First ROMs Appear for the Nvidia Shield Tablet

The Nvidia Shield Tablet has only been available for a little over a month. In that short time, Nvidia’s latest gaming-capable mobile device has more than proven its worth. In fact, we recently took it for a spin, and we liked what we saw. Since then, it’s been rooted, it’s received its first major OTA, and the device continues to demonstrate that there is certainly a place for a low-priced and high-powered gaming-centric tablet.
Only a few weeks after its release, the Nvidia Shield Tablet seemed poised to receive a good amount of aftermarket development love. This started with an unofficial ClockworkMod recovery port for the device by XDA Recognized Developer Unjustified Dev. Now, XDA Senior Member joshuabg and Unjustified Dev have created two source-built ROMs for the device for your flashing pleasure. The former’s offering is built on the AOKP codebase and Unjustified_Dev’s device tree, while the latter’s ROM offers various CM-derived features such as profiles and quick settings.
If you’ve already gotten your hands on the Nvidia Shield Tablet, you should probably get started with rooting, installing a custom recovery, and loading up a custom ROM. To get in on the action, first drop by the Shield Tablet CWM recovery thread. Then once you’ve got the recovery installed, head over to the VanirAOSP ROM and AICP ROM threads.
