Re: Check for updates - same version

Is there a new version?  I have been checking ( v 1.0.1.1690) using the "Software Updates" and it says you currently have the latest software installed.  I have been noticing other version numbers as well, all higher than mine.

Re: Check for updates - same version

Forgot to mention - it prompted me for this update with the symbol near the top right.

 

I would take a screen shot, but the screen shot shortcut is not working.  That's one of the other issues I'm having, but I posted about that in a separate thread...

Re: Check for updates - same version

I'm having this exact same issue. On the initial update at the time of setup, it downloaded a 247MB update to 1690. That in itself took several tries. Now, several times over the past day and a half - its entire life so far - its been telling me there is a software update available - to 1690 (the same) and the size is only 4MB. Each time I proceed with it and it goes through the entire install process, prompting me to download, then install, and finally reboot. Upon boot up, the same update is available. I have tried this process on several different WiFi connections, and tethered to my 9780, and I think even to my N8.

 

Anyone have any ideas? Is there a way to manually wipe the OS and reload it like a BB smartphone?

Re: Check for updates - same version

OK, so things have changed a bit, but same results.

 

This morning, the tablet was updated to version 1.0.1.1710

 

It took a few hours, but sure enough, the update icon appeared at the top of the screen, and offered the same version.

 

This is growing old.

Re: Check for updates - same version

It happens if you delete an app like NFB .  Go ahead try it! Delete NFB then check for updates :smileyhappy:

*Let me know if it works.

CORRECT!  I tried deleting Slacker Radio (for the 500th time), and checked for updates.  None were available through the desktop software or the in-device Software Updates.

 

As soon as I deleted the NFB app though, I checked again immediately, and voila!  A new version of the software is available - same version as I had.

 

Wow.  This sucks.  Not only can you not HIDE apps you don't want, but the device seems to insist on re-installing them right away as soon as you delete them!

 

Thanks sf18443 - this is likely the cause of the problem!

 

So Blackberry folks.  Fix please!  Please give us the ability to nix apps like Slacker Radio that we do not want!
