Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

That's strange - iirc it was announced a few of weeks ago that all new JIRA entries were public by default...

Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

That was indeed what Mark said.

Perhaps whoever created it (was it you?) accidentally checked the "Contains confidential info" checkbox?

I can see 561 and 565, but not 560, 562, 563, or 564 (just as a somewhat random test). What are your results?

Yes I created it, and no it's not marked confidential. The history doesn't show it being marked as private either... Mark?

Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

The second issue was marked as private.  I changed it to public.  Note that the change we implemented wouldn't have affected issues that had already been created.  It only affects issues created after that change.

Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

Mark, the fix for this is in 2.0.1, but apparently either Rovio chose not to mark their App World update as being only accessible to 2.0.1, or the fix is not going to be of much use to us... at least maybe not yet.

 

Has anyone there seen or heard about this yet?: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-playbook-f222/piracy-playbook-apps-out-control-719245/

 

It claims Angry Birds Space showed up on warez sites within 12 hours of release.

 

Did it get extracted through a 2.0.0 device (in which case this sounds like Rovio's fault)?  Or are the App World holes still in existence, making this a case of having locked the front door but the back door is still open, so to speak?

 

Anyone have additional info?

Someone already added to the thread, apparently confirming that 2.0.0.7971 can download the app: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackberry-playbook-f222/piracy-playbook-apps-out-control-719245/index3...

 

Interesting that they'd do that, or that a major company like that wouldn't have been in the loop enough to understand what they had to do to take advantage of the "fix".

Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

Okay, so I hear that even if they'd marked it for 2.0.1, a knowledgeable user can "downgrade" from 2.0.1 to 2.0.0 (using the OS images some people have been snagging and keeping), and keep their installed apps, so that would make this feature currently largely useless anyway.

Re: Apps can be extracted from the Playbook?

Okay, and yet another issue that would have stopped them from doing the "Min. OS" thing: you can't select 2.0.1 in the dropdown when you add a PlayBook File Bundle in the vendor portal.
