    I lost nothing. Everything works perfect. Oh correction I lost the ability to use flash browser. Not sure if it's the drm issue or what but it is longer compatable.

    Thanks, everyone, for the info on rooting. Now I have a question on how to install roms. I tried searching, but I ended up with multiple threads from the past 8 months that have bits and pieces from different time periods and I'm not sure how they go together. I found this

    How to install Thrive 0003 Dalenet oom rooted rom on the Toshiba Thrive - YouTube

    but I can't figure out which rooting method goes first. Can I use the TYBAR Universal Root tool and then do this, or do I need to use a different rooting method? I'd appreciate it if someone can point me to a thread that has this kind of info. I'd like to root to get a firewall, etc, but I want to be sure that I'm not missing a step somewhere. Thanks.

    Not a matter of first, but best. Start with [Tool] TYBAR Universal Root Tool - GUI and, if that doesn't succeed, you can try the dalnet one.
    Watch the video 3 or 4 times, until you have it memorized then follow the instructions verbatim.
    That thread and video should give you everything that you'll need.
    Once rooted you can THEN install the ROM of your choice.
    For best stability and most familiar operation use dalepl's 0003 OOM Rooted ROM

    Thanks, Dan! Looks like I'll have to study for a while until I memorize it.

    I found it very helpful to watch the video on my computer WHILE using the tool. The steps are very easy, but, you know, heat of the moment.....

    I will give you the abridged version.
    install the drivers
    Plug the thrive in with the USB cable that came in the box.
    Open dalepl's easy root
    choose your build and hit enter
    Relax for 5 min
    Don't forget to go to superuser and do that update thing
    Download timmytims honeybaked 1.2 (that's what I'm using)
    Drop it on the SD card (don't put it in a folder just the main part of the card)
    Power down
    Power up holding power button and volume up when you see three icons pick the middle one
    Scroll down to install from SD card
    Pick the zipped honeybaked file and hit install
    That's kinda simplified but basically it. I watched the video 3 times to make sure I did do anything dumb and viola.
    Just don't skip any steps and watch the easyroot video a couple times. It really is easy.

    life is better with root.

    Is "main part of the card" short for root directory?

    Thanks. Just making sure I understand everything.
    Does the rest of the sd card have to be empty or can I use my backup card?
