Updating to OS2 from OS1.0.2.2078 (How to do?)

Hello all,

 

Today I purchased my new Playbook tab but it is manufactured in JUNE 2011 and has OS1.0.2.2078 (June 2011). Now I want to Update it to OS2 (latest one).

 

So How Should I do this? What is the procedure? Is there any special procedure to update from such an old OS version?

 

Thanks in advance

press gear icon on top right and then goto pdates and let it do its thing.

 

its about 400 meg or so in size and can take 30 min total time o more depending on wifi speed.

Thanks for the reply. One Quick Question- Is it possible to pause the update and then turn off the PB and then turn it on again and resume the update cycle?
