As per the SDK install instructions I followed the instructions for switching Java version to 6 by changing the sym link. Since I have been using Java 5 for some other (i.e. non-PlayBook) projects I tried to switch back and found that reversing the instructions didn't work. Basically I ended up with a totally broken Java install on my Mac (Im running Mac OS 10.5.8) - major problem since I had other projects I need to work on!
Anyway after poking around for awhile I ended up downloading and installing the latest Java update from Apple's support site and managed to get Java working again (phew!).
So my question, is there some special reason you guys dont use the Java Preferences applet in /Applications/Utilities to modify Java versions instead of ( the more error-prone) method of messing with sym links? If there's no special reason, then maybe you can update the SDK install docs for developers on Mac to use the applet to switch versions since it was designed specifically for that purpose.

I guess I'm having the same problem (MacBook, OS X 10.5.8). This is the (probably useless) error report:
Gonna try a reboot and then reinstalling the latest java update.

For the record:
I did a "sudo mv JavaVM.framework/ backupJavaVM.framework backupJavaVM.framework" in /System/Library/Frameworks/ before running the Mac OS X 10.5 Java Update 8. After that, "java -version" returns version 1.5.0_26.
This somehow solves the problem of the Tablet Air SDK Installer not wanting to run.
However, after following the Flash Builder 4.5 Hello World instructions, I get this:
My guess: I installed Flash Builder 4.5 before I tried to fix the JRE version problem, and by doing so, I messed up the ClassLoader version.

I'm also encountering the same problems... updating to the latest (update8) version didn't work out...
my Java, Flash Builder & Flash professional won't start anymore...

Similar problem. MacBook Pro OS 10.5.8. Upgraded Java to 1.6. Now Flash Builder 4 and Burrito will not launch (different errors when launching either of them).
Flash Builder 4.5 launch error:
The JVM shared library "/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework"
does not contain the JNI_CreateJavaVM symbol.
Flash Builder 4 launch error will not copy/paste and is too long to transcribe.
