    Hi Dan, I didn't ask "why root?" because I know I want to and am going to; I know that I will be able to do more with the tablet "rooted" than stock. I may not want to do that real quick just in case some warranty issue raises it's head. In the short term, I will be exploring my tablet before attempting anything major. I have some accessories on the way like extra battery and SD card. Probably need more than one of those.

    The Thrive came today and I checked the tablet; it is not one with the "eng" ROMs. It is an older unit with Android 3.1 and build HMJ37.01.5.0018.

    The one thing I am having is that it goes to sleep too quick to suit me. I guess there's a setting somewhere that I need to "adjust".

    Glad that you got it!
    Settings/screen/timeout will get you what you need.
    Try to update through Service Station to the latest 0003 build if you can.
    The build that you've got was a problem a long time ago with units gotten through WOOT! . So long ago in fact that I'd forgotten all about it. Toshiba was to have fixed the issue, but.....
    If you can't update through Service Station take a look here, and see if you want to go through the process:

    Dan,

    Re. Titanium Backup Pro.
    Looks like the app store wants about $6 for it now. But I think it is still worth it. I'll pick up the key for it shortly.

    I've been messing with it ever since the box showed up. Still learning my way around it.

    I'll be in touch with Dale about ROMs when I get through reading his forum space.

    In the meantime, please feel free to offer advise on what you think I need to do first or next (I did do an update through the Toshiba Service Station. To HMJ37.01.5.0032)

    Yep, you are right. I guess I go through the same procedure until I get to the current release. Patience, must have patience...

    Yep, do that. There were a few bugs that got cured along the way, including the "sleep of death"......

    I am now at the current release. That took several updates to get there, another 4 maybe 5, I wasn't really counting. I have found out that I don't have any Toshiba warranty on this unit it appears. At least the registration app said I could not register it online, and I would have to call an 800 number for assistance. I did buy a squaretrade warranty to cover it.

    Anyway, the

    Good, Ed.
    Now you're up to date, and have all of the "fixes"
    Even if it's a refurb, you should have a 90 day warranty, so long as it's a factory refurb.
    If it's a 3rd party refurb, the warrranty is with them initially. Your SquareTrade will kick in afterwards (unless it's something not covered by the original).
    Have Fun!

    I seem to remember someone saying they had to add an "R" to the Product Version or something, I believe others have called. Some 3rd-party warranties require you to use Toshiba if still within the 90-day or 1-year period. Refurbs have a 90-day warranty.
    Cheers, Dave

    I guess I have a refurbed one, but that's fine with me. It is working perfectly as far as I can tell. I'll be testing some productivity type software in the next few days to find some that fit with my needs. I would like to thank you all for the advice and help you've given me so far. I'll be back in here again for more I'm sure.
