    TWC TV installation on a rooted Thrive AT100

    How do you make the TWC TV work on the rooted Toshiba Thrive AT100 device? Time Warner indicates that it will not work on a rooted device; however from what I see there are workarounds for it to work.

    I saw a couple of vids on You Tube but they are old. I need something for it to work with an updated Time Warner Cable TV app.

    Thanks a bunch!

    You can try temporarily unrooting. Superuser should have a button for temporary unroot, or you can try an app like OTA Rootkeeper. Be careful if you download it. I see it's no longer available from Google Play, so you'd have to download the APK from somewhere.

    Was this one of the videos you tried?

    Maximizing performance is like with any other Android device. You never need to defrag flash memory, but you should periodically run apps like CCleaner and SD Maid to clean out file buildup. Every 6-12 months it's a good idea to make backups and clean-flash the device so it's like new. In daily use, devices like the Thrive with limited RAM can benefit from apps like Fast Reboot, which clears out all processes and restart only basic ones. Ordinarily you don't want or need to use those apps. It can in fact consume excess battery life for Android to reload data that was already in memory. But sometimes I run a memory-intensive app that works better if I run Fast Reboot first.

    Yes I did try this by using the video. It still didn't work. But he used a different root program than what is in the playstore now. Also I am sure that TWC updated their software so maybe have to use something else? Don't know! So any more suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You can always go back to an unrooted rom.

    How do you go back to an unrooted Thrive?

    I do not know much about workings of the Thrive.

    I need step by step if possible.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I'm a little late to the party, but I thought I'd throw my two cents in. I have a rooted Thrive, and had no idea I couldn't install the TWC app. So I installed it, and it works fine.
