PlayBook OS 2.0 dev beta. Locked on a password screen

Hi, I was pleased to take a PlayBook for my company at the DevCon with the OS 2.0 beta (I hoped to test the new features and try running some Android apps there).


I set it up with wifi and my new BB account and was able to use it for one day.

Next time I tried to use it, it was locked on a password screen. I used several attempts with my account or wifi password, but it isn't that.


Now it is on the final password required screen - it says enter "blackberry" to continue, then the next one warns me it will wipe the tablet if wrong. These are not my account or wireless password, so what do I have to enter?


(I can not use any other part of the tablet while this shows, and reboots do not put it in a different state)


Please help

Re: PlayBook OS 2.0 dev beta. Locked on a password screen

The password would be one you set yourself. If you have no data on the tablet that you need then entering a wrong password one more time will just wipe the tablet of all data and let you set it up again.
