Fix the playbook problem after upgrade to 2.0.0.7971

My problem is can't run the android convert apps.
I think this is cause by some update error. So I go to find some method to reinstall the OS.
And then I find a offline OS 2.0.0.7971 image from here:
http://bzlink.us/40gihr5vomt9/2.0.0.7971.zip.htm

Then I reinstall the "sys.android.bar" component by DDPB Installer. After restart the playbook, the android convert apps can run now!!!!:Clap:
I think this can solve another problem by reinstall the relative component.

Hope this can help most of user.

I prefer and recommend to stay away from 3rd party site.

upgrade via desktop software if one have to re-upgrade. a lot safer.

 

 

of course if you don't have any personal info on PB or just just your PB for surfing, gaming and don't mind being spied/tracked on your activities, it may be not much problem to use 3 party site.

Desktop software can re-upgrade?
But I haven't use desktop software, how can I re-upgrade it?

And not only me can't run android apps. I think this problem is cause by blackberry server error or software error. But I can't see blackberry provide a solution to fix the upgrade problem.

There are many threads on this forum about updating from the desktop manager.

yes there are many threads on upgrade via desktop software,

 

it works even if you never updated your PB

if you have no desktop software installed on your pc, go blackberry.com and downlaod and install the balkack berry desktop software

 

 I repead mlefranc's steps here for your conenience:

1-Connect Playbook to PC USB port.

2-Launch Blackberry desktop

3-Backup everything.

4-On playbook, press Power & Volume - & Volume + util shutdown and red light appears.

5-Playbook will start a reload process.

6-Watch Blackberry desktop. At one point, there will be a window poping up saying it cannot connect, and if you want to upgrade the software. This is what you are looking for. Do reload from this window on desktop.

7-Careful not to remove the USB

8-Follow instructions.
