If you're currently running the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 beta then you'll want to go ahead and check for system updates. Right now v2.0.0.6149 is currently available for download. The change log, while slim, does mention new laguages, updates to BlackBerry Bridge as well as multi-media enhancements, but that all seems rather standard plus -- it remains unchanged from previous versions. There are likely some security enhancements in there to block the DingleBerry exploit as well but, that remains to be seen as it is not specifically outlined. Go head and grab the update -- let us know what changes you're seeing.

i registered for it but it does not want to show me the update.
i even tried to check before i re-registered for it and they're was nothing.

dasDestruktion

Same. I checked. Re-registered. Checked again. No dice yet. Just give it a while. :p

Mr. Black

Me, too.

I got two Playbooks, none of them is getting an update offer. :(

No joy. Do we need to register if we have OS2 currently installed?

Jonathank

I have not seen the update in either way (checking updates and registering)

Yamcha

Yup, Im not seeing an update either..

Seems you have to re-register at the SDK 2.0 beta site:

I re-registered at the Android Beta site and have not received the update.

I'm wondering if there's a difference between the "SDK Beta" and the "Android Beta."

Jonathank

That worked...thanks also

brianr549

Worked for me also =-) Thank You!

crysslotus

Thanks a lot, it works pretty well.

what are the new languages?

WOW! RIM stepped up their game with HTML5 standards on this version's browser! It scored 308 pts on html5test.com. Keep the significant improvements coming, us developers sure appreciate it.

BigBallsB

so i have the andriod web browser i think it dolphin or something but anyway right away i notice the icon had changed its size to to fit the aspect ratio on the playbook also notice if you swipe down while in the android web browser you have a choice to veiw whatever your looking at in playbook browser

bb5683

Worked so far, download almost complete... Now it a little wait,and then testing time! Oh... Spoke to soon, it's installing. :-)

BigBallsB

They reported this on BerryReview.com as well.

Drewpoc

bridge works properly now. notification window shows icons but no description, much better though

bb5683

Kobo Books ,and Video Chat, still not working, Though the Web Browser is much... Faster,and some of the browser bugs have been fixed. OS as a whole just seems snapper! Come on Native Email,Contacts,BBM and more...! Can't wait, And please I hope RIM gets a 100% better Keyboard with Auto correction ,auto caps for starting a sentence etc.

Seriously, I got my PB last night and was very disappointed when i double tap the space bar and a 'period' didn't appear.

Jonathank

BOSE SOUNDLINK WORKS YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

snoozininsomniac

for those of you who dont read the forum threads, YES! a2dp is now working flawlessly! that plus browser tweaks.

I had previously installed the earlier version of 2.0 and was experiencing problems while browsing. My wifi connection is flawless but on the playbook it would continuously drop, i.e. I would be browsing the internet and all of a sudden the status bar would load half way and just stop and an error message would appear. Finally had enough and switched back to 1.0.8 and with the 1.0.8.6067 update, my wifi issues on the playbook were solved. Anyone who was experiencing the same problem installed this newer version of 2.0 and have noticed this issues being fixed? I don't want to update to 2.0 and have my wifi issues come back.

buckwylder

my wifi seems unaffected by this latest 2.0 update

didn't even need to security wipe first, it just reconnected to my "mobile hotspot" just like it did before i updated

when going from 1.0 to 2.0, you will be updating twice.

i had to enter my pin twice, once for each update

fyi - my wifi worked after each update, because it is what i used to download the update, i didn't have to tether or side load anything

i am stoked how modern combat sound works again, in 2.0

A2DP? Yay! Downloading :)

BB Storm 2 + 32GB PlayBook
(where's my QNX phone?!)

buckwylder

bridge notifications for bbm work awesome with this update !!!!!!

also, modern combat sound works!!!! woohoo, oh, and dead space (probably cuz of ea's update, but still - woohoo)

sadly, madden sound still gone, requires an update from ea

mad finger or unity or whomever really needs to make samurai 2 work with 2.0, cuz that game is really fun!

anyways, love the improved keyboard, good notifications of bridged bbm, folders (missed that so much when i downgraded) and over all i like how everything is just "nicer" looking for some reason

Was around 42k with 1.8.

KSavvage

Files are visible through bridged bbm when changing display pic.

lnichols

Glad to see they are making improvements. Sucks about Madden though. Maybe I'll wait for next update.

ryanlrobinson

Mine's still downloading, but I'm told that the Gameloft games are fixed with this updates, but the EA's and some others are not.

shimme

keyboard settings are still missing so i still can't turn off the key click unless i mute the playbook. icons overlapping the dock icons was fixed.

BarracudaBob

Can we finally edit and rearrange our bookmarks?

pjmacklin

for what it's worth, the native maps feature is now fully fuctional.

beware96

Email notifications from the the native Andriod email client work now......don't think it did before.

So, I finally got my PB last night and I'm wondering if I should get OS 2. I consider my self to be pretty technical and definitely have the expectations that certain things might not work as well. I mainly use it to web browse currently and the browser improvements seem pretty significant.

I would also love to have folders.

knightfall

This is minor but; with the prior version, I had an issue where the icons within folders (i.e. Bridge icons in the Bridge folder) would scroll up through the "dock" and the even the wallpaper. It was if they weren't layered correctly. This latest version seems to have corrected that issue.

Perseus71

I couldn't wait any longer for folders as I have a ton of apps meaning scrolling and scrolling and oppps launch an app... scrolling... The whole upgrade was easy! I entered my pin @ the beta site... was trying to but failing at backing up my PB. Within the time I submitted my pin and failed at my backup the upgrade icon showed in DM. downloaded, installed and bam! organized my folders, tested my fav games and happy as S**t right now! There was no way I was waiting any longer

NaijaBerry

Ok noticeable improvements:
A2DP works
Browser loads fast, smoother scrolling
Playlists work properly now in Music
Music sync is very fast
Bridge notification opens bridge apps (although exclamation shows in the folder view)
Press Reader now shows up in appworld with 2.0, just downloaded it
New theme section button in appworld
Android mail notification works like bridge notification

Thats all i've seen so far an hour after update

pepe68

guys, can't seem to get the update. I re-registered as mentioned above. Stil no love. Maybe i'm doing this wrong, but I was already on OS2, do I have to DownGrade and then apply?

OK, got it running yesterday.
Registered here: https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/beta/register
Run the software update and voila! Everything went smoothly with no issues. All apps ran perfectly except for Android was a little slow at first, so I just decided to reboot. Run faster, it seems, and very smooth!

cwoodffr

I put in pin and email and got update available within seconds. Was already on 2.0

AntL85
