How to Use the New SHIELD TV in MTP or ADB mode

The new SHIELD TV does not have micro-USB port for MTP or ADB mode. However, the USB port furthest from the HDMI port can be configured for MTP/ADB.

You will need a Type-A to Type-A USB cable (or an adapter for your micro-USB cable that converts the micro-USB end to USB type-A).

Before connecting this cable to host Windows PC or Ubuntu you must select USB device mode from Android Settings:

For enabling MTP Settings->Storage & Reset -> Using USB

For enabling ABD Settings->About->Build

Press Select here 7 times

Settings->Developer Options->USB debugging

IMPORTANT: You must return to default settings in order to use this port with USB drives, USB cameras, USB keyboards etc.
