Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

Is there anything else one needs to do, after RIM sets up the Beta Zone account (for those of us who got an invite but hadn't joined Beta Zone before), other than logging in and adding a PlayBook PIN in the Technology tab?  I didn't do the PIN for a couple of days, but did it yesterday morning and have yet to see any further email or any sign that I can update to the beta.

 

Just trying to get a sense of how fast that last stage is, or whether I might be missing a critical item or field somewhere.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

I selected the 1.0.6 and entered my PIN. A day later, my device notified me of the update and I received an email. No major surprises so far on the update. GPS seems more responsive, Away3D app freaked out so I had to remove from sale for now. Minor update to assets loading (seems to take a hair longer, but might be due to it being in debug mode possibly).

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

Peter, I had subscribed to the Beta Zone earlier, but didn't fill in very much of my profile at all. Once I got the invite, I went in and updated my profile including tablet PIN. Later on, I checked the tablet with Check for Software and it informed me that the download was available. The email notifying everyone of the download update came a half hour or so later.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

I've been on Beta Zone for some time now, when I got the invite I applied, and updated my PIN. I have yet to recieve an update. I double checked, my PIN was entered correctly.

 

What worries me is that they say that it will only be up for a short period of time (they say one week) and I worry I won't be able to test anything because I never got the update.

I have requested invites be sent out to all who have requested them up to this point.  Note that today's batch of invites may not be sent out until the end of the day.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

 

I just recieved an e-mail stating that the beta is now closed to new participants and that if I had not recieved the download notice it means I added my PIN to my Beta Zone profile too late. 

 

Just thought I would update this thread for any new comers.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

I registered at the beta zone & added my PIN, and requested the invite a couple days ago, but as of today don't see the invite in my inbox or spam folder ...

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

@Zymatic: I got the same thing. Ironic since that was what I was worried about.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

Hello Mark (again : ),
