    Latest Available Android?

    My Thrive is running Android 4.0.4. Service station says no update available. Is this true? If possible I'd like to upgrade to 5.1 to run Xfinity TV X1 for viewing saved TV shows.

    Hi rich,

    Android ICS 4.0.4 is the last official release for the AT100.

    A few developers on this forum produced ROMs for 4.1 and 4.2, but I don't think there were any versions beyond that. The lack of non-neon support (i.e. older processors like the Tegra 2) in mainstream Android and CyanogenMod after 4.2 means that later versions cannot be compiled for the Thrive. OmniROM is the only source I've found so far that keeps it, so it might be possible to compile OmniROM 4.4 or 5 for the Thrive, using the Acer Iconia A500 source as a starting point. Nobody's done this as far as I'm aware, though.

    Thanks for the comprehensive reply. I love the Thrive but it's beginning to show its age.
