I had to do a security wipe on my PlayBook long ago and the original, stunningly beautiful hi def video demo didn't come back with the reinstall. I'm giving this PB to a friend now and I would love for him to see that video. Since it seemed like a regular video file, is there a location from which I can copy it and put it back on the PlayBook. I'd like the PlayBook to be in its original state when I give it to him. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you had cleared the Playbook using the Debrick method the demo video would have been in the OS bundle. The Security wipe doesn't bring it back. Most of the download links to Playbook Hidef Demo mp4 were from 2011.
Debrick is the way ahead if it's important. It's not without risks.

if you really want it back then follow this
First I would like you to do a Back Up of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software.
This can be downloaded for free from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/
After the Back Up is complete I need you to 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.
