Help...I have a big problem with my 2.1 beta Playbook not booting, it locked up on me after trying to access the Appworld and I've been unable to bring it back to life no matter what. I've tried the various reset procedures and charging with both the USB and desktop fast charger...no luck. Using the PC DeskTop manager results in the playbook recognized, I get offered the 2.01.358 update which of course I select, I wait 30-45 minutes as it downloads the update, tries to install the update then the Desktop manager comes up with an unspecified error A:0x00000049, whatever that means. This is not the first time I've had to rescue the playbook through resetting/updating, but I've always been successful before and I'm a bit fed up of going through this procedure every time. Any help would be appreciated Many thanks

Thanks again for the reply, yep tried that too at least 6 times, the DM software downloads the update , tries to install and gives up with "unspecified error A:0x00000049". I assume it's corrupt OS , and wonder whether it's to do with it being the developer beta version all I know it's giving me a headache

Ok here we go again, I left the playbook updating for the 7th time and this time it seems to have completed the update, battery is totally flat, and when I try to power up the lightning symbol is shown then it goes off and the green led is cycling hopefully charging up...
