Not much.

If you can't remember your password - you need to wipe it by finishing all the password attempts.

Sorry.

Re: password required before updating software

Yes you can - but I believe the PlayBook will carry out a security wipe when you have used your 10th attempt. (I haven't personally tried this Smiley Happy)

Once done, it will go through the initial setup and then it will you will be like new.

Re: password required before updating software

Different problem. Have you tried manually entering the wifi details.

Alternatively, restart the PlayBook and try it on someone else's wifi network.
