    thrive 10 4.2.x rom?

    I'm almost thinking of selling my thrive 10 inch runing ICS dalep rooted rom. The thrive overall doesn't seem that fast with all these tablets coming out. Also, what are the chances someone is going to make a custom rom to bring this up to 4.2.x?

    thanks for your opinion,
    Jeremy

    A factory reset, clearing out all of the cobwebs, along with Pio's Melchoir kernel o/c'd to 1.4G makes for a pretty good experience.
    I know that Pio has a couple JB ROMs over in his Dev area and many people like them. Don't know the version offhand but you can check it out.

    Your choice, though...

    I rooted my Thrive last night, so I've got recent memory of what's out there.

    There are several 4.1.x based ROMs that you can install, such as the CM10 unified build, Baked Bean, and others. They appear to be pretty stable and well-supported with a few small quirks (like no lockscreen location for me right now).

    There is also a CM10.1 build which is 4.2.x based, but (and I'm not sure if the thread was up to date) there are some deal-breaker things for me that are listed and no working or not working consistently. Until these things get fixed, I will stick with CM10.

    Honestly, the main reason to run CM10.1 is multiple users or the new launcher/notification bar UI... that's about it. CM10 (4.1.2) is still Jelly Bean, and has Google Now, Project Butter, and all of the other things that come with it... and for now, that's definitely good enough.

    Your mileage may vary...

    jrb, definitely try one of Pio's 4.1 ROMs to breathe new life into your Thrive. His 4.2-based ROM isn't ready for daily use, but most people wouldn't notice any differences between it and 4.1. The big difference is between 4.1 and 4.0, because JB's use of the GPU will make things look smoother and feel snappier.

    Android 4.3 was released yesterday, but I'm not fretting that my Nexus 7 doesn't see it yet. It's not that huge an improvement.

    Pio's Baked Black Bean jellybean ROM is one of the best out there. Believe me, I've seen many Jellybean ROMs and many ROMs in general and this is one of the best I have run on any device. My Thrive is fast overclocked with the kernel included.

    There is one thing about Android 4.3 that I didn't realize is significant: OpenGL ES 3.0 means superior graphics, at least in devices and apps that can make use of it.
