I have two Playbooks. One syncs with my 9810 and the other with a 9780 and both updated to 2.1.1032. Bridge was not affected on either unit.
Have you tried pairing any other bluetooth devices with the Playbook? With the BlackBerry?
If you're sure it's a problem with the Playbook then I'd recommend a debrick procedure to reload the Playbook OS.
First, make a Back Up of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software.
This can be downloaded from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/
After the Back Up is complete unplug your PlayBook and then push and hold down the Power Button until the unit Force Powers Off.
Now, while Desktop Software is still open on your computer and the PlayBook Powered Off, Connect the PlayBook to your computer.
You should see and error screen from Desktop Software pop up that has the options to Retry, Update, or Cancel.
QUICKLY choose the Update option.
This will erase all the information off of your PlayBook and Re-Write the Software back onto it. Once it's complete your PlayBook will need to go back through the setup wizard, and you can then perform a restore using Desktop Software to return your information. The only thing that won't come back after the restore are the apps that you downloaded from App World but they can be easily Re-Installed using the My World feature in App World.
