    Hi natalie, if your Thrive already has an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery, you can flash a new ROM. But Android 4.1 is the latest anyone has made for the Thrive. Pio_Masaki was developing a few different ROMs, up until a few years ago. The Thrive doesn't have the CPU hardware to support 4.2 or later.


    There are some sites, usually on Blogspot, that claim to have new Android ROMs for older devices. They're always the same three files, which is impossible for them to work on the same devices. At best, they're clickbait: you click through pages full of ads, and the page owner gets a little bit of money, while you get worthless files. And if you download an installer program to your computer, you might be installing a virus.
