This shrine is dedicated to:
the Nvidia Project Shield Portable.
Helpful links and details will be added in time...






background:
The Nvidia Shield 'portable' (not the tablet) was released mid 2013 and didn't make it into the hands of many gamers, not because it was priced a bit high (starting at $350) or that there weren't many units, there weren't many games specifically for the device in a niche market and people didn't understand it's power of emulation. This powerful portable handheld gaming device has a 5' touch screen that flips up to reveal a full on Xbox360-like controller. In the back there's a cooling fan vent, microSD slot, headset jack, and HDMI mini port. Using the latest Android build KitKat, with a quad core mobile processor, 2GB of ram, 16GB of internal storage, and the capacity of 64GB external microSD...there's quite a library of games that this unit can handle and take with you on the go. Many games from the android market (play store) can be played on the shield, you can also stream games from your pc to the screen on your shield and use the shield as the controller to play the game, clever. Also there are many emulators that really makes this the greatest handheld gaming device of it's time. You could even pilot an AR drone!

The Shield has become a new rare, those who have one either know or need to know of it's emulation capability. Nvidia has recently released an android update for kitkat (101) and are currently working on lollipop for this power portable to be more streamline in emulation + They have become harder to find and the value MAY go back up.

FYI nvidia is about to reveal their next "made to game" 3/3/2015, it's something they have been working on for the past five years! Could it be the next Shield portable?
Who knows, no matter... the original shield portable will forever be the best handheld a gamer can hold. Should anyone need help tricking one out let me know. I've taken mine apart, rooted, customized armor & buttons, and continuously pushing it's emulation.

Shield Portable Software Upgrade 103 is now available! +
What does this mean? It means that you can upgrade the android os to Lollipop 5.1!
Some apps will not work yet some apps such as googlecast will with chromecast +
There are hopes of better emulation and more control of file management... only one way to find out... updating now...


how to update? settings > about > system update

ummm... do not update to Lollipop 5.1, your Nvidia Shield Portable is best kept on KitKat101 until a better more solid lollipop build is released. There's just too many issues. I'm glad I did the data backup and was able to downgrade back to good old KITKIT +

this thing has been keeping me entertained, upgraded to a 64gb micro sd (had to format fat32 so android could allow read, write, and delete permissions) got quake 3 arena running flawlessly, been mining the net for q3a mods and models.

here's a screen shot of how good it looks

yeah had to get the alien in honor of wiggles +

and the speed, man this game runs smoother on the shield portable than it did on the computer I had back in the day Razz

with the old 32gb micro sd card I got an adapter that plugs into the micro usb, so now I have even more room for goodies on the go! Cool

Is this the power of a tablet in a phone with an attached controller powered by Android?

@wiggles - yes, kind of, it's really an odd duck. It's more like a controller with a built-in tegra4, dual li-ion batteries, (no rumble) with an attached flip/touch screen (no camera) comes stock with Jelly Bean, has a solid KitKat build, a few bugs with Lollipop update, and hopes for a new Marshmallow build.
