Hi, I've just had to make a security wipe on my playbook (bought a bigger capacity one and gave this to my brother). The problem is it won't update the system, thus it becomes unusable at all
I've even tried to reboot while plugged to desktop manager and it manages to install part of the OS (manager crashes at the install and says the communication is lost), but it will still search for a 24 MB update that it just refuses to install after download. It just goes around 40% and then goes all the way back, prompting the "unable to install" notification. When I made the security wipe it did the same but after the 40 minute download it just got around 1%, which I think could be the same file.
If it helps, at one time it kinda managed to boot, since it loaded the system (but desktop manager says it didn't finish setup) but it had no app world and the notifications at top of the screen didn't work. No icon was usable. So I guess that 24MB update is very important.
I already waited for a new update and didn't work, results are the same to me. Wipe had it in 1.0.1, updates tried are since the 1.0.5 version. Already tried the 1.0.6
Is there any possible troubleshooting?

Hi F1MX ,
Welcome to BlackBerry support community forums.
Like I too faced similar situation while I was trying to update my PlayBook OS to 1.0.5. I tried 12-14 times but each time it failed at various points not exceeding 35MB!! It was very weird for me. But later I came to know that the it is happening due to pressure on the server. I would recommend you to try after some time or odd hours of the day.

Hi, thanks for the quick response.
Maybe I didn't make it clear, but my trouble is while installing, not downloading.
Plus, I've donde this about at least once daily for the last week and at different hours, so server issues are not a big possibility
