When will Toshiba be releasing the update to icecream sandwich?[HR][/HR]
I contacted Toshiba Canada to find out if there were going to be any updates to the Thrive to take it up to ICS.
It took a few days for them to get back to me, but they did eventually call me back saying that Toshiba has determined that they will NOT be putting out an OTA update for the Thrive (AT100) to take it up to ICS. They will only be releasing ICS on their new tablets which are supposedly coming out soon.
Personally, I think that all of us who have Thrives should contact them through their support feedback form and tell them how disappointed we are in their decision to not release ICS for the Thrive, and put some consumer pressure on them to push out OTA updates to bring it up to ICS.
Ahhh, I bought my 10" from Amazon at a great price. I like it a lot. I find honeycomb buggy. I would look towards jelly bean and a new tablet, rather complain about this thrive. This is my first tablet, my trainer if you will. I wasn't sure how I would use a tablet vs my old Samsung Vibrant. My carrier is T-Mobile which has awful coverage in my neighborhood.
I am not sure I would stay with Toshiba and, as T-Mobile is now reshuffling post AT&T, I still don't know how to separate phone use from tablet?
So my actual reply to OP's line is who cares? Wait for jelly bean when you can be a more informed consumer?
This may be old news but I thought I would add it anyway. Its would seem that the Thrive will get ICS, if this report is to be believed. I really hope so because if it is not the case then I will ditch the thrive and recommend to all and sundry that they do not support the Toshiba product as it stagnates very quickly. Which would be a real pity because at the moment it is a very neat snappy tablet.

ICS for THRiVE Status Update - Toshiba Forums
ICS is here for the Thrive 10". Check your Service Station.
Has anyone figured out how to root ICS yet?
Root 3.2 and install a prerooted ics rom over at www.thriveforums.org a sister site
sent from my Thrive
No. You would have to have rooted before ICS and flashed Dale's ICS ROM. There may not be root available if you already did the OTA for ICS
According to the Toshiba Site ICS Update for THRiVE 10" - Toshiba Forums
ICE has been released.
