Re: Update 2.1.0.1088 is released

Yes Slacker Radio is available in the US also,. The limitation is dictated by Slacker, not BlackBerry. I don't know why.

Re: Update 2.1.0.1088 is released

Since the last couple of updates, I have not been able to log into Imo.Im. Use to be able to use Skype through Imo and make calls to other Skype users and the audio worked flawlessly. Now the web page freezes for a few seconds then I get a message that the media type might not be supported? The Skype log in Window appears but cannot type.

Was this by design?

Since the upgrade, neither camera works (front/rear) - when I launch the camera, all I get is a white/grey test pattern... and when I take a photo, that's what the photo looks like.  No change when toggled to video.  Has anyone encountered this problem?  Know of any fixes?

You need to follow these instructions to "debrick" your PlayBook:
1. Do a backup of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software version 7 installed. It can be downloaded from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/
2. After the backup is finished, unplug the PlayBook and on the PlayBook press and hold down the power button until the unit forces the device off.
3. With the Desktop Software still open on your computer and the PlayBook powered off, connect the PlayBook to your computer once again.
4. You should see an error screen from Desktop Software popup with the options to Retry, Update, or Cancel.
Very quickly choose the Update option.
5. All information will on your PlayBook will be erased and a reload of the Software will commence to install on the PlayBook.
6. Once this is complete your PlayBook will go back through the initial (as if new) setup wizard (entering the BlackBerryID, etc., and then you can perform a restore using Desktop Software to return your personal data from the backup. Applications which you downloaded from AppWorld won't restore, but they can be easily reinstalled using AppWorld > MyWorld section of AppWorld.

Re: problem

I suggest to restart your device. If that does not work, restart it again by holding down the volume up;  volume down AND the ON/OFF button until the red light blinks - it may take a few seconds, be patient. You can also try the suggestion above.

 

Good luck.

Re: Update 2.1.0.1088 is released

All you need to do to restart is depress the power button for 20 seconds. The three button restart was removed several OS releases ago.

Thanks.

 

My PB got messed up so I had to do a recovery from my PC. Happy to report that all application data, including my contacts, saved maps and personal info for my wallet app was restored.

Re: Update 2.1.0.1088 is released

I have this problem too, since update 12.1.0.1088. But camera only shows black and if you take a picture 'error.4003 picture'. No other apps that need camera work either. As this has been my most used app it makes the playbook a bit useless now.

Artisttjsb, you need to call your Playbook support number.
