A few users found that colors were muted on the screen after the last Shield Tablet update, which NVIDIA acknowledged as a bug. The chipset vendor has now rolled out an update to address the issue.

NVIDIA Shield Tablet

NVIDIA rolled out the 2.2 update last week, bringing more games available to stream to the Shield Tablet, several performance improvements as well as increasing battery life during standby. The update however caused the screen to desaturate colors, with users noting that reds were being muted. NVIDIA has now issued the 2.2.1 hotfix update, which is delivered to rectify the screen calibration issue.

Here's the official changelog from NVIDIA:

  • Display color-space correction
  • Improvements to Netflix experience

The update should now be available on your tablet. We've checked on our Shield Tablet, and colors seemed noticeably brighter. Head into your device's settings to check if one is available, and let us know if it fixes the issues with the screen.
