    Flash again and again?

    I just used the Universal Easy Flash Tool to root ICA on my Thrive 10.1”and flashed HMJ37.01.5.0032 Fully Stock ROM(US HC 3.1) to it. If I update to a newer HC version later, either by flashing one of Dalelp’s ROMs or directly thru Thrive’s Service Station, as long as the new version is one of Dalelp’s Universal Easy Flash Tool’s supported ROMs, then I can easily root and flash again if need be?

    If the device is rooted, OTA updates will not take. As long as you have CWM installed you can flash to your heart's content. However, there is a limit to how many times the chip will last with overflashing. But, one should be safe if they are not flashing it 5-10 times a day.

    If you flashed the fully stock, unrooted ROM, it removes custom recovery, and places you back to, truly, stock.

    As per dalepl :

    " Thrive HMJ37.01.5.0032 Fully Stock ROM - This is a US based ROM

    This release of DaleNet HMJ37.01.5.0032 ROM is a completely stock ROM. I have removed nothing. This ROM will allow you to flash your system back to stock. It contains the stock boot image, stock recovery image, and stock system image. This should allow you to install any over-the-air (OTA) updates."

    A question kind of on topic...

    IF you do flash a device with a "Completely stock ROM" and it happens to be wrong, (Thrive 10 image on a Thrive 7) is there any way to fix? All that is available now is Android System Recovery. The touch screen is not working and the display is upside down

    Thanks in advance
    Pete

    I'm guessing that it's possible to try running
    [Tool] DaleNet Thrive Univeral Easy Flash Tool
    Which will install CWM.
    You can then flash one of his 7" ROMs. http://www.thriveforums.org/forum/dalepl-7-inch-roms/
    If you flash the full stock, Toshiba's updates will 'take'.
    Or flash a rooted one and stick with HC.

    I am pretty sure you will brick a 7" if you flash the 10" ROM onto it. You will have to have Toshiba fix it if that is the case.

    yeah I suspected that - the ADB drivers will not load and I think because I am not able to log in and setup debugging etc.?
