Did anyone try Skpye with the new OS! Is there any compatible .bar file which can work alongwith the camera?


No, Skype, will not work with the camera at this time. http://www.blackberryos.com/blackberry-playbook-operating-software/32123-discuss-playbook-os-2-1-bet...

 

A Skype beta will work but only with CHAT, not the camera. See the above link for a copy of the beta.

 

For the record (because this WILL be asked) neither does Netflix or Instagram.

I thought they would finally do something for the video chat in the new OS but it seems Skype won't be compatible with playbook till BB loses all its share! So, whats new with android apps! Anything new happened with the new OS!

You won't see any visible difference, other than in the BRIDGE folder, you will see a new SMS text icon IF you are bridged to another BlackBerry smartphone.

How about backing up your media and files and then doing a factory reset? Which is essentially a security wipe (nuke) and will wipe your data and restore the PlayBook to factory condition? You will have to reinstall any applications you have purchased through the App World. It sounds like you have corruption somewhere on your install and to me at least, it sounds like a factory restore is the only way to get back and running for you with the latest OS installed. It's drastic, but it will work. Make sure you backup your important data first though...once gone, it's gone.

 

 

To reset your PlayBook, you'll need the latest version of BlackBerry Desktop Software, a micro USB cable, a computer, and - of course - your PlayBook. Start Desktop Software on your computer and turn off your PlayBook. Yes, turn it off. Use the USB cable to connect your PlayBook to the computer and wait. After a moment, you should get an error message saying Desktop Software cannot connect to your PlayBook.

 

Click the "Update" button that's in the middle of the other two buttons, follow the on-screen instructions, and wait. Desktop Software will take care of downloading the OS and installing it to your PlayBook. The process could take up to an hour; make sure you keep your PlayBook connected until told it is safe to disconnect. Once finished, you'll be required to choose languages, set the time, sign in with your BlackBerry ID, and make final updates to the operating system - just like you did when you first received your tablet. After you're done, you'll once again have a working BlackBerry PlayBook.

Re: New OS 2.1.0.1032 is available

Thanks for that chaos. Had reached the conclusion that debricking might be the way forward, butwas hoping to avoid it as I'd had to do the same last week after another unrelated issue. Where's that usb cable..........

Re: New OS 2.1.0.1032 is available

I'm not able to receive the update.  I always got a 66048 error message.  Can I force the update from the BlackBerry Desktop Software ?  (and is it possible to update without wiping data ?)

 

thanks
