    Toshiba's Official forum

    Since I got my Thrive, I would visit the Official Toshiba forums, read up on what was going on.

    At first, there was an Admin by the name, Jim. He was very helpful.

    That was until requests for source code, and beta testers complaining about the locking down of fastboot.

    Jim, strangely, has been nowhere to be found lately.

    Coincidence?

    Yes. Jim does not do just the Thrive forum. He also conducts and tracks the beta tests. He is a busy guy.

    Fair enough, perhaps the community there has gotten large enough to take care of itself.

    Thanks.

    Lets hope he's actually testing 3.2 and not blowing us off.

    Jim does not do any of the testing as far as I know. He monitors testing and the forums. He is bound by contract to not disclose anything and as a Toshiba employee, I would not either. He responds when he can and with what he can. I feel he is doing a good job. He tells us as much as he can and does so in a way that will not threaten his job. Take a look and see how much flack he has to endure by all the impaitent people out there. I do not think I could be doing what he does. This is an informal forum and people are venting all the time. His is formal, but not a formal place to get pre-release info. Toshiba, like any large company has rules that the employees must follow. Do I wish that we got more timely info? You bet. Do I wish I could have every issue resolved as quickly as I want? You bet. I also have been working for a long time and know that is not possible. Retail stores are the direct interface to customers. Toshiba is not. If you want to know the truth, I would much rather Toshiba skipped the HC 3.2 release and concentrate on getting ICS to us. 3.2 is really a minor update and is still not an open source. ICS is a major release and will be fully open source.

    Jim is active and still kicking..... There just may not be anything that he can say (and there are many things he does not wish to repeat over-and-over-and-over). As has been mentioned, his plate is pretty full and if things fall under his radar, one can always PM him from the official Toshiba support forum.
