    So, you just got a new Toshiba Thrive and you want to root it? Here is the easiest way to go about doing so. Attached is the Toshiba Thrive Resurrection Tool. Download it.

    To install the Thrive ADB drivers, do the following:
    Go to the USB ADB DRIVERSs folder in the tool package.
    Right click on the installer and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
    Follow the on screen prompts.
    When you get the warning about the drivers not being signed, select INSTALL ANYWAY.

    To use this tool, do the following:

    Unzip the tool to the desktop of your PC.
    Open the Toshiba Thrive Resurrection Tool.bat file.
    Select option 1.
    On the next menu, select your ROM build.
    Follow the instructions on the screen.
    Once you have completed initial setup and verified the device is operating correctly, you need to verify superuser operation by doing the following:
    On the main screen, select APPS.
    On the applications screen, select Superuser. It will give you the version info. Close this and you will see a log.
    From the Superuser log screen, select the wrench in the upper right corner. This will open the properties view.
    On the properties screen, scroll down to SUPERUSER INFO. It should say "Superuser (version number)" and "Su binary (version number)". Tap on "Su binary (version number)". This will open the updater screen and should say "CURRENT VERSION ALREADY INSTALLED. NO ACTION REQUIRED." at the top.
    Click on UPDATE ANYWAY at the bottom.
    If you get no failures, then you have superuser access on your device and all is good.
    If you have a failure, try doing the update again.
