    Post Need to move from ICS

    Hello. I am new to this forum and considering the age of our Thrives...I came here late. I have a 10.1" which I use as my notebook/book a college since I bought it new on September 2011. 3 years later, it has become rather slow and sometimes unresponsive. I have tried everything within its stock capabilities but ICS has always given me problems. I've read around that Jelly Bean is possible. So my question is: How can I improve my Thrive? Honeycomb or Jelly Bean? Or is a rooted ICS the answer? I would like to get the most out of my tablet since it endures heavy use. Specs below:

    Toshiba Thrive 10.1"
    Model: AT105 (according to Service Station | AT100 according Settings>About Tablet)
    Android Version: 4.0.4.01.000072314
    Kernel Version: 2.6.39.4-g2388484
    Build Number: IMM76D.01.000072314

    Thanks!

    Dalepl's Rooted ICS for me from the minute it was available (actually before, as I was a beta tester).
    I've had no compelling reason whatsoever to "update" it from that.
    "Always giving you problems" can often be cured by a factory reset.

    Welcome to the Forum, LegendaryPuma
    I'm still on dalepl's rooted ICS ROM, but I am going to eventually update with one of Pio_masaki's great JB ROMs. (I keep saying that lol) As Dan said, a factory reset (after backing up any documents, music, photos that aren't already backed up) can cure a lot of ills, and is a good idea to do from time to time, regardless of which ROM you're on

    oops, I was composing my post above while you posted yours. dalepl's rooted ICS is the basically the same as stock ICS, except much more stable and smooth. JB is a newer OS and pio's JB ROMs offer more than the stock options as far as features. You can read all about them in his development section to see what might intetest you. Pay attention to the first few posts in each ROM thread, as they'll tell what's included as well as if there's anything that doesn't work on that ROM.

    Did a Factory Reset last night. Did not delete all my user data, since pictures, downloads and some old app data remained. Speed and responsiveness has improved to like new condition. Still getting some of my apps back to see if I can run no problems with this new life I have given to Yumiko. If it fails to deliver, then I will strongly consider rooting for Jellybean

    Hello. I have created a petition on iPetitions to get Toshiba to provide updates to our Thrive tablets. I am too new to be able to post a link, but if you will google up "petition update thrive tablet" you will see it. Perhaps someone else can provide the link here.

    Please sign. Let your voice be heard!
