The dev team for the Toshiba Thrive has obtained a stable root, super user permissions, and ClockworkMod recovery. Apparently the root is still under testing, and there is no guarantee it will work, so it may take some time to get out all the kinks. A word from one of the devs behind this root:
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.
Now, if you’ve got a hankering to root your Thrive, you can give it a shot by following these instructions. As always, you’re rooting at your own risk.
So, is anyone going to give it a shot? Leave your comments below!
