Playbook got locked bootloader after update OS 10.1

Hi everyone!

 

As the title, i tried update OS 10.1 on my playbook and i got bricked now :smileysad: I try to debrick using Desktop Manager, BB link and CFP with OS 2.1 image file, autoloader.... but nothing works. It seems that the bootloader was locked.

 

When i turn my pb on, just flashing red led and no start up screen now.

 

Please help!

I don't think I said it would, but that's the forum to visit to ask the geeky boys how to get out of the mess, no?

 

I know I am new here but please read beyond the words in the link.

I already try to search in CB before posted here :smileysad: Too bad that rooting could not solve this problem. I can not turn on the pb so i can 't do anything after that.

3 out of 4 chances you killed it.
These geeky boys like to post how to load OS10 alphas but not how to clean up the mess.

By the way search for "debrick" as the 1 out of 4 chance is that will fix it

Re: Playbook got locked bootloader after update OS 10.1

dont follow the backup part but this will debrick it

 

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.
