I'm one of the guys who had to delete 9.0 and go back to 8.23. Since I 
only use my Shield TV for streaming TV apps, MythTV Frontend and 
Leanfront, I don't see a compelling reason to move to 9.01 fix.  My 
Shield is the 2017 64bit version. I guess I'll stay at 8.23 until there 
is a real compelling reason to move forward.

I'll be curious to see what others say.
