Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

My wifi disconnected only once since the update, do to the fact I got out of range, which is poor to say the least.
Go to the Play store, and download wifi boost, it works very well.
I'm sure as we all post the bugs within this update, Toshiba is taking note, and will address these in an update.

JELLY BEAN will and has solved these and other problems with ICS.
Just do a little research on Jelly Bean, and compair it with what your experiencing now.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Hi everyone!

 

I'm bought my Thrive in Argentina and Toshiba never give me any support. Update to 3.2 never appears in my Service Station so I rooted my TT and upgraded to ICS. Now my TT works better and I have ICS. So thank you Toshiba for the user service! Root and prosper!

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

I have had no power/wake up issues...I have, however, lost my wifi signal several times since the update (it's pretty strong and a few times I was in the same room, within feet of it). I have also been getting knocked off of web pages and been bounced back to my "home screen" many, many times....each day is more frustrating:smileysad:

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Ok, let's break it down.  Your THRiVE goes into sleep mode, either by pressing the power button once, or timing out?  You try to wake your machine by pressing the power button and....nothing? 

 

Too get my Thrive to work again, I then turn it off and then turn it back on.

 

After updating to ICS, I have also had this same problem 3 times. I never had this problem with Honeycomb.

[ Edited ]

All went well with the update, until I tried to play movies that were on my SD card.  These were movies I have played MANY times on 3.2, but now that I upgraded to ICS, none of them will play.  These movies are in .m4v format, and used to work.  What is the story?  

 

And an update... it isn't just .m4v format, I've had trouble with MP4 now as well.  It seems incredibly picky about what it will play, when it used to play all of these movies.  This really sucks.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Besides the movie play back problems, the File Editor keeps locking up now, and all I can do is reboot the Thrive.  If I were any of you, I would hesitate to update to this ICS version.  If I could go back, I would not use it.  So far, advantages, zero, problems, two.  And these are not small problems, movie playback and file editor malfunctions.

 

Wait to see of Toshiba will fix these major issues in ICS, prior to your losing them.

After the ICS update, my Thrive 10 will not wake up. Have to shut down, then re-start. Did not have this problem before the update.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Another update to my issues:   It looks as though the problem is not playing mp4 or m4v files, it is that the ICS update killed my 64 gig SD card.  No, I didn't have it in while the update took place.  I ejected it first, rebooted, ran the update, rebooted, added the card.  I tried to run a movie off it after that and it wouldn't run any of them, then eventually, after serveral reboots, killed the SD card completely.  Not that I can prove that the update did this, maybe the card just decided to go bad right at the exact same time... I don't know.

Have you tried another media player, such as MX Player?  It is available for free in the Google Play Store.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

My Thrive does not show in the service station, ICS as being available for update. It still shows the Android Version as 3.2.1.21.5.0009. I tap check for updates but it still shows that there are No Software Updates Available. I live in the USA. What might be the problem?

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

After the ICS update, I have no audio. Is there a way to get it back? I have hash marks in the sound settings for audio for music, etc and also in the notification icon and you can't get rid of them.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Rmohan, if you are on version 0002 you still need to update to 0003 before you can go to ICS. The updates are sequential. Do you see 0003 update in que?

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

Russski, try doing a factory restore. Back up your data first because you'll lose everything. Might be just a bad file in the update.

Re: ICS Update for THRiVE 10"

When I press the Check For Updates button, it says No software update is available.

So nothing is shown in the queue.
