Hello everybody,
Since the last update of the nvidia shield TV (Android 11) hyperspin no longer works.
A message indicates that it is no longer compatible with this version of Android.
Do you know if a hyperspin apk update will be made?

Sorry the app was broken.  I'm working on a quick update to fix compatibility.   It's been years since I've looked at this so I'm running into various build/env issues and I don't have an ETA.     It should be easy but I've already spent more hours than I expected.     I'm expecting an update in 2-3 weeks, but that's not a promise since I'm uncertain about the fixes required yet.     While I'm at it, I intend to fix the issue raised with Retroarch as well.

Cheers!

I'm sure MANY people will be VERY grateful!

I just put in over a month of work making tweaks to my collection, the prospect of never playing it on my Shield is very sad, I just got it to where I was happy.

I appreciate your effort. Thanks!

I'm so happy my storage is so full... it can't update even if I wanted to...

Thankfully nothing of mine was affected. Hopefully Our friend Reznate,can create a update,just in case...

Thanks

Everyone you can downgrade your software on the nvidia shield. Just finished mine.....

You are brave! I started, but couldn't get past 'fastboot oem unlock'. Terrified of bricking the stupid thing, something isn't jiving.  And, all the online instructions are a little different. Also, the warning of the 2019 Pro taking up to 2 hours to do a wipe sounds scary - we have sudden power outages around here, not risking it.  Did you downgrade a 2019 Pro?  How did it go for you? Flashing game systems never took THAT long!

Ok, I bit the bullet and did the downgrade. Success!

Just a few observations:

What drove me to it was that the update also broke trackball/mouse support in mame4droid (with the Atgames Gamer Pro, probably with a regular mouse too).

Oem unlock didn't take 2 hours - the entire process was actually under 3 minutes once I connected to the Shield properly.

I used Win10 Powershell (so you need to add .\ before the fastboot commands)

I used the crappy 2.0 USB A to A cable that came with the Gamer Pro and a regular old keyboard (I did have to plug and unplug them a few times to get it actually connect).

I think the entire process is just finiky and less dependent on what cables or keyboards you're using.

This is great news. I recently purchased a Shield specifically for Hyperspin & as soon as I did the set up it upgraded to Android 11 :( I was looking at doing the whole downgrade thing but if there's a fix coming, I'll hold on. Thanks in advance for all the work & time spent on this, I know there are a lot of grateful retro gamers out there :)
