Playbook very slow, getting worse

I am having a lot of trouble with my playbook. When I first got it, it was quite quick and worked well. Now it is very slow all the time, even after a reset. It is slow to load browser, up to 3 minutes. Apps are the same and sometimes don't load at all. Websites are very slow, particularly anything with loading pictures, including Facebook, and often my playbook will lock up entirely. I deleted most of the apps and saved data hoping that would help, to no avail.

In Settings, About, Hardware, what is the Total Storage GB, and what is the Free Storage GB?

Ok so it's not lack of free space. 3GB free would be a sensible minimum.

 

Your best bet would be to debrick using desktop software
