PlayBook OS 126.96.36.1990
Settings -> Security -> Password -> Enable Password
When I try to enable the password, the device resets (Your Playbook will now be erased.) each and everytime.
What am I doing wrong?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Same thing happened to me. (I forgot that the default password was "playbook" and kept entering the wrong one)
I discovered that FB will now connect with any (non-blank) password so I .didn't bother to reinstall the sdk/sim. Despite the warning that the playbook was "erased" my previously installed apps were all intact. Actually, this is nice because now i don't have to reenter a password every time the sim starts.

OK. Good to know.
However, how do I prevent this from happening every **bleep** time? I want to change the password Settings.

This appears to be a bug in the sim - so you can't restore the password without reinstalling. However since everything works normally for debugging purposes (without needing a password reset) I didn''t bother.

The simulator has the Development mode and password set by default now. What you're saying is that you're trying to change the password?
I tried the same and have no problems, so could you please explain your steps again.

It is described in my first post. In the path described, when I click on the button to turn the Password "On", the device resets.

You can't change the password after the sim is supposedly "wiped" due to entering youir password incorrectly 10 times. Turns out the device is not in fact wiped and it behaves as if it were set to "password disabled".

Mine does NOT do the same thing (once I disable the password first), but I'm wondering why you even needed to do that. The image arrives with the password already enabled, and there's no reason to disable it.
If you were just experimenting, I think you should just reinstall the image and start again.

Ok, now I've got it.
First you had the Playbook Simulator "wiped" due to enter the wrong password 10 times.
Then, after rebooting, you cannot change the password anymore, although you can still use the old "playbook" password, right?

@pgarcia That is correct.
My apologies, I did omit that detail.
