    My Toshiba Thrive Gets To The Toshiba Leading Innovation Screen And Stays There. IVe Tried Wiping The Cache and Clearing The Data But It Always Boots To The Same Place And Stops. I've Pulled The Battery. Anyone Have Any Suggestions?

    Sure do.
    Search for 'won't boot' and 'stuck on fireworks screen'.
    Here's a start for you...

    I've tried everything except the attempt to reseat the connection to the emmc. And I'm still at the Toshiba Leading Innovation screen. Not exactly looking forward to pulling my tablet apart. Isn't there a stock ROM somewhere that I can put on there? I'm more of a computer guy so to me I'm asking isn't there a way I can format the hard drive and reinstall that OS and start from scratch?

    Your only other option, as stated in the indicated threads, if you've exhausted every option within them, is to PM dalepl or Pio_Masaki and ask them for a reflash.
    Of course, if the emmc isn't connected fully or is damaged, it'll be a waste of time. That's why the 20 minutes spent 'pulling the Thrive apart' is recommended before doing the reflash.

    Your choice, though.... :beer:

    Ok I checked the emmc connection, although it took me a little longer than 20 minutes lol. Still the same thing to the Toshiba Leading Innovation and then just sits there. Whats my next step?

    As Dan said earlier, send a PM (private message) dalepl or Pio_Masaki and ask them for a reflash. They'll explain what's all involved and then it'll be your decision whether or not to proceed.

    And, as is our new practice whenever a reflash is mentioned - better safe than incredibly sorry:

    ***WARNING.... WARNING.... WARNING... WARNING... WARNING! ***


    Occasionally, there are posts by people who claim to be able to "reflash" non-functional Thrives.
    For the protection of our forum members, any such messages are deleted immediately. A second post is rewarded with an immediate, permanent ban -- and I urge that no one think to test our Moderators on this.
    Recently, a few individuals have done exactly that and are now on the outside looking in.

    The reasons are simple:

    First - TRUST. The method used by these would-be reflashers involves full remote access to your PC, with file transfers. Are you willing to turn your computer over to a brand-new forum user who has no reputation, who might infect your computer with a virus or other malware? Even if you think there are no passwords and credit card numbers to steal, malware can easily turn your PC into a "zombie" that attempts to infect other computers across the Internet and on your home network.

    Second - Even if the person offering has no malicious intent, the reflash tool is dangerously powerful.
    One mistake can irrevocably "brick" a Thrive, which even Toshiba can't undo without expensive hardware repair.
    Are you willing to trust your Thrive to someone who may have never used the tool before, or has no responsibility for the result?

    So, if, after trying the above procedures, your Thrive appears to need reflashing, please post on the forums first.

    Maybe someone can help fix it without reflashing. If it turns out a reflash is needed, send a PM to dalepl and pio_masaki - nobody else.
    They are recognized Developers on this forum and are trusted, professional and helpful. They have the knowledge, experience and the proper tools to do it correctly. NOBODY ELSE can make that claim.

    You may be contacted via PM by another member offering "help".
    They are not sanctioned by the forum owners or Staff, and DO NOT possess the knowledge, experience, trustworthiness, or, possibly, the proper tools needed, to fix the issue.
    They might, in fact, do more harm than good, and the forum is no way responsible for any damage done by them.
    You could easily end up with a non-recoverable $400 brick.

    If you are approached by ANY OTHER MEMBER offering this service please contact the Moderation Team IMMEDIATELY so we can take appropriate action - and before the damage is done.
