Enjoying your new Toshiba Thrive tablet but feel the itch to root? The great developing community has you covered. Last night they were successfully able to root the Thrive, enable superuser access, and flash Clockwork Recovery. Sounds like a good way to wake up, right? Not too many people have tested out the instructions, and the devs were sure to point out that this is still preliminary and they are working to make things safer. In their words:
Mine is the second fully working Thrive with Superuser access, Dalepl was first, and austeregrim bricked his to get shell root so we could get the system dump. NatolX bricked his to prove they have an unlocked bootloader. …Please note take this at your own risk, this is just a preliminary step, and I happen to know it might only work on the latest OTA for the Thrive (dunno about later Toshiba updates).
Hit up the thread in the source link below for full instructions and support. The process doesn’t look that daunting, but you’ve been warned.
