    Updated my Nexus Player and ended up removing root. I prefer Google's lean back launcher, I have not found any reason to sideload apps anymore, and I quite frankly there was not enough development that made me want to continue the hassle. I manually updated to 5.1.1 yesterday and with Slingtv now available for the nexus player I'm good.

    Curious to know if any of you with your nexus player still rooted?

    And @chevycam94 how do you feel about your nexus player now, I know I asked your opinion about the nexus player before I purchased it back in February.

    I updated & have remained stock, no root. It's nice to know I do have options if I wanted. But like you say, the stock launcher is fine & works for what I need it.

    I still have it. I just saw a couple minutes ago, that it just received TWRP. I was kind of waiting for that so I could flash test roms without worrying about killing the whole device. I plan on doing some improvements to it, and release a public ROM.

    Also, starting my ROM on the LG G3. I'm trying to raise money for an LG G4. I'd like to upgrade, as well make a ROM for a current device. I know it will be worth it.

    College had my time all taken at the moment. When I get some spare time, I'll see what I can do.
