    [Root Tool] Linux Shell Script for Thrive Root and Unroot

    Thrive Easy Root and Unroot Tool v0.5

    Warning: DO NOT USE CLOCKWORKMOD RECOVERY TO PARTITION AND/OR FORMAT YOUR SD CARD. IT WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE.

    WARNING: This is for 0029 and 0032 only. This tool can be used to root the current 0032 load and unroot the 0029 load so you can load the 0032 update. Your WiFi will no longer work if you flash the wrong boot image with any system image, so if you have 0029 and want to root, you have to use the 0029 rooted boot image and if you have 0032 you have to use the 0032 rooted boot image.

    - INSTRUCTIONS -

    1. Unzip the file into a directory of your choice.
    2. Read the readme file.
    3. Open a Linux terminal screen.

    • To root the device, run the Linux shell script root.sht located in the thrive_easy_root_linux_v0.2-rc1 directory.
    • To unroot the device, run the Linux shell script unroot.sh located in the thrive_easy_root_linux_v0.2-rc1 directory. NOTE: If you are going to unroot your device to install an over-the-air update, be sure to undo any mods you have installed (ex. adhoc, NetFlix, etc).
    4. Follow the screen prompts. Enjoy.

    Please note: If you are going to load the out of memory (OOM) optimized 0032 rooted boot image, it is not compatible with any of DJ_Steve's ROMs. If you are running one of DJ_Steve's ROMs, this boot image will probably break some functions that DJ_Steve had to make work from within the boot image. If you load one of DJ_Steve's ROMs after loading this boot image, then you will loose the optimazations since DJ_Steve's ROMs load thier own boot image.

    OK folks. I have updated the easy flash tool to include an out of memory (OOM) 0032 rooted boot image. This moded boot image is the same one in my v1.2 stock rooted ROM. It optimizes the OOM and makes the device have smoother scrolling both in the launcher screens and in your apps. Please read the following note before loading this boot image. Enjoy.

    Please note: If you are going to load the out of memory (OOM) optimized 0032 rooted boot image, it is not compatible with any of DJ_Steve's ROMs. If you are running one of DJ_Steve's ROMs, this boot image will probably break some functions that DJ_Steve had to make work from within the boot image. If you load one of DJ_Steve's ROMs after loading this boot image, then you will loose the optimazations since DJ_Steve's ROMs load thier own boot image.

    I am trying to root my thrive. I get to the point where I check if my Thrive is in fastboot and I can't verify that it is. It will not show up in fastboot devices and it wont reboot using fastboot reboot. I am sure that the thrive is in fastboot because I get the message "Starting Fastboot USB protocol". I have tried to run the easy flash tool and get "waiting for device" forever. The same message I get when I try fastboot reboot. HELP?

    OK, I have updated the root tooland added a script to allow flashing of a recovery image. This tool contains dj_steve's version 2 of the Thrive ClockWorkMod recovery. If you do not know, the first version still hade the menu option to partition the sd card. A couple of Thrive users tried this and have bricked thier device. Due to this, dj_steve moded ClockWorkMod recovery and removed this function. If you still have his original ClockWorkMod recovery loaded, please load this one. Thanks.

    Noobie question about security. Thrive now rooted. Installed your 32 rooted rom. I have been reading on the thrive forum that android tablets don't really need any firewall or anti-spyware utilities because they are built on Linux which has no access to critical files (unless it is rooted). For my own protection, what is the next step? Do I simply use your tool to unroot now? Do I lose any features I have gained within your new rom? Is there any type of app that now lets me password protect my root access?
    Thanks.

    You already have protection built into the root process. The Superuser.apk app that is loaded is the interface between your device and superuser access. If an application requests superuser access, the Superuser app intercepts this and you have to give the asking app the rights. If you do not, then the app does not get superuser access to the device. Can a mallitious app be made to cercomvent this. Of course. There is no 100% protection except for yourself. Be aware of what you load and what it accesses. That is the best protection.
