BlackBerry PlayBook OS v1.0.8.4985 now available

We heard not too long ago there was a BlackBerry PlayBook update waiting to be released and now v1.0.8.4985 has arrived. This release really just concentrates on some bug fixes, updates Flash and addresses some issues with WiFi connectivity. The update should show as coming in at around 95MB when all is said and done.

The BlackBerry PlayBook OS v1.0.8.4985 contains the following fixes and updates:

  • Updated version of Adobe® Flash® Player version 11.1 and Adobe AIR® 3.1
  • Daylight savings time updates for time zones in the regions of Latin America, Australia and Central America
  • Updated Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® software to help to improve connectivity
  • Fixed issues some users were experiencing with account payments in the BlackBerry App World™ storefront
  • Improved synching when restoring applications with BlackBerry Desktop Software 
  • This update also includes a security update for Adobe Flash Player, as noted in Adobe Security Bulletin APSB-11-28, which addresses issues that can potentially affect any PC, tablet, or other device with an operating system that supports Adobe Flash.
