*UPDATE* - Security fix for Flash - A new version of the BlackBerry® Tablet OS is now available to all BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet users. BlackBerry Tablet OS v1.07.3312 contains an updated version of Adobe® Flash® Player. This free update can be downloaded over-the-air from your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. 

While we're still not at v2.0 level as of yet, a new BlackBerry Tablet OS update, v1.0.7.3312 is now rolling out to BlackBerry PlayBook owners. The update comes in weighing around 29MB and at this time, we can't be certain what, exactly has changed as we're just getting it loaded up now but by all means, hit that software update button and grab the download. If you spot anything new, let us know in the comments. As soon as we know more, we'll update this post. Thanks, Craig!

Dowloading!! Yeahhhhh I did not expect this... :)

jfuqua@tiorco.com

I wonder if this should be a bad sign? If OS V2.0 was going to be released very soon, would they release this version or just wait a week or two for V2.0? I think this shows how far out V2.0 will be.

Jake Storm

Security fix.
Can you imagine how the trolls would scream if they found out RIM had a security fix, but they kept it from PB owners because they didn't want to release it too soon before version 2.0?

shebmiller

This is the type of small fix capable of being patched through the "incremental" type update, and so that is why it was done this way. Also, keep in mind, this is the first real "small" update. Maybe they were testing the method because maybe os2.0 will come with a series of small updates...

my 2 cents

Maiev

Ya was just a flash update.

The "Power Off" app still got its bugs.

The power off powers the pb off
Restart restarts the pb
But standby still restarts the pb

Lol.

mjs416

My PB goes into standby when I press standby.

TheWait_IsOver

when I press the StandBy, mines goes into DeadSpace

...Don't ask me how! I just all of a sudden find myself killing Necromorphs!

UnknownError507

+1 ahaha :) you made my last hour of work man !!

Sloberon

Not sure why yours does that, I have never had an issue with standby restarting my PB. This update has sorted a number of issues though, I used to get a BBM info icon on the top left and it wouldn't go away despite the message having been read. Well now it disappears after reading the bbm. Also my bluetooth keyboard would often reconnect the whole time i was using it, and that seems to be fixed now. Angry birds had a serious lag when playing, now the flash seems to be a lot faster and smoother. All in all I must say that I am grateful for the update, but still desperately wanting v2.0!

BBMINI

I'm glad to read these comments since I'm having the same trouble and was going to post a question in the forums.

I've noticed, though, that it only incorrectly restarts when I use the swipe-down menu to try to put it into Standby. If I tap the battery icon and then choose standby it seems to work correctly.

brento

Great news. I hope its a nice update

Kerri Neill

I think it took me all of 5 minutes to download & install

mohawk apple

DAM I'm at work rite now :-(

bquinney

Me too, and I just know this crappy wireless connection will poop out prematurely....

feldmen01

I'm at work too... Time to tether!

The_Adventist

I'll grab this.

In before RIM put downs and "WTF not 2?! That's it goodbye RIM hello iPad2"

adjdudley21

actually rim made it pretty clear 2.0 wasnt coming until after dev con ..... but if the grass is greener for you on the other side.. go right ahead.. nobody here cares what u do... just make sure youre ready to shell out for the next ipad 3 since the 2 will be outdated by february

gregorylkelly

Wow, the post you replied to was clearly over your head....

ifarlow

1) The iPad 2 won't be outdated any quicker than the PlayBook, and 2) he wasn't suggesting that he was going to an iPad, but rather commenting on the inevitable complaining that others will bring to this thread.

But kudos to you for failing to understand a two line post.

maxb1ack

one can never expect everyone to understand sarcasm,

adjdudley21

actually i understood perfectly what it meant i was just adding that for those who want to complain go ahead.. the word you was plural no specific to him.... but anyways on another note the ipad 2 was well under built so they have a reason to get the next one... everybody knows this.. thats what makes it date so quickly... the playbook was not.. sooo there for it just need software updates to refresh it... not new hardware..

sonydude23

I had to read it 5 times before I got it...

We know it was well intentioned... Signs of a true CrackBerry Addict...

Go easy fellas...

adjdudley21

we're all on the same team..... we just like talking trash to each othe... call it practice for the real haters..... ha ha

maxb1ack

hahaha :D good way to look at this...

StuartV

What's that gonna say about the PB when the iPad 2 is outdated and you can STILL do more with it than you can with a PB??

Mail client, anyone? No, no. I mean a Professional quality one. One that at least has support for an Exchange ActiveSync interface, so you can use it to sync mail, contacts and calendar with any of the zillions of mail services that support that interface.

And, of course, that's just one (glaring) example out of MANY of the things you can do with an iPad or Android (or even a TouchPad, for that matter) tablet that you can't do with a PB - and still won't be able to do with BBTOS 2.0.

adjdudley21

yea youre right.. bblackery products canrt do what apple products do... like send information to 3rd party vendors without my permission... or send my messages and emails unencrypted.. or be hacked. but on the other hand can any apple product access 100% of the internet, multitask, upload and download from the internet.. operate without the use of a computer, create open and edit zip files, operate as an external harddrive, hook directly up to a tv or monitor withou an addition product adaptor from apple, use the iphone for data when wifi isnt available, access the iphones data on the ipad, upload entire photo albums on facebook with the facebook uploader... um shall i continue or wait for apple to release 5more incremental HARDWARE updates which require u to drop an additional 700 dollars just to have a conversation with your phone.... oh ok ... shut up and get off of BLACKBERRY's fan site and go play on APPLES site.. u dont find us over there cause we have BETTER things to do than troll on apples fan site

TheAmazingHarold

I'm not sure how much of this is true since i don't own either but duuuude... sounds like you just effing owned him.

Imma buy a PB in the States in 2 months (if i can find a 32GB one somewhere). Exciting.

mjs416

I respond to emails on my PB all the time. Add appointments - add contacts. It does have an email client - its just not native - it requires your BB.

The_Adventist

Sorry. I thought the "" made it clear enough that it wasn't my words. I'll make it more clear next time.

It is posts like the following one that I was referring to:

"Here's an update - YAY - What ever..

Am I the only one not caring ...

I've only V2.0 to look forward too...

Seriously., the iPad 2 is looking better and better every day :S"

You'll find the quoted post a few posts down.

The_Adventist

Post before reading and understanding much?

You missed the ""'s eh?

Also missed the:

In before

remark eh?

I've never owned an apple product and never will.

brkiko201

I'm at work n my playbok is at home. Damn

maxb1ack

same, but found a playbook at work, WIN!

PostMortem

Figures, at least they didn't make us wait until BBTOS 2.0 to update Flash.

sashas

Please verify this update doesn't kill the free phone tethering feature

Kerri Neill

Still working on mine although it does seem to be a bit slower loading apps like Facebook & opening the PlayBook browser than before.

sashas

I'll be asking this question with every future update as well. Tethering is the best feature of the Playbook.

Sloberon

Confirmed, in fact it seems to run a lot smoother :)

SharpieFiend

I'm not sure why a flash upgrade would require a tablet restart, but OK... If this update gives flash performance improvements then I'm happy.

sashas

At least RIM doesn't make you restart after installing an application like they do with the phones. Ugh.

debugy2k

Stop with these mini updates and give us OS2 already!!

The Consigliere

Well looks like I know what I'll be doing once I get home. Every little bit helps but like everyone else, I can't wait until we get that BIG update that brings all the goodies (well at least a good amount of goodies LOL).

QueXiaQuanton

Who lets there playbook get below 20%. Honestly Bla1ze.

Thebigo3d

I have to admit... I wait for as low as 7% before I go running for a plug.

sharkfab

Here's an update - YAY - What ever..

Am I the only one not caring anymore? RIM needs to start an open blog about what they're currently working on and when they'd like to release it.. keeping secrets only work for Apple >_>

I've only V2.0 to look forward too with my PB.. the only info I got is from 3rd party web sites with leaked pics.. WTF?! Seriously open up RIM, show us what's up..

Secrets are for the new shiny things you're releasing, not the updates that are coming that should have been out with the initial release of a product.

Seriously., the iPad 2 is looking better and better every day :S

Kamika007z

Adobe sucks. Patching for their software will be a nightmare.

I hope version 2.0 offers a quick patching method for Adobe Flash instead of making users update the "whole os" everytime a security flaw is uncovered with it.

jetstreamblue

Actually, RIM already implemented incremental updates. The "whole OS" would be more than 29 MB.

blackmoe

A 29 meg download is hardly an entire OS.

Rob Robertson

It was only a 20MB file. You don't have to update the whole OS but the restart is a bit of a pain.

chi-town311

OMG I can't wait 90 seconds while my tablet reboots.

feldmen01

Still can't delete certain web bookmarks from the OS desktop...

adrenaline_x

Will this work on my 9900?

;)

luqman24

Worked on my 9810 so why not xD

JerBowles

How about RIM fix the damn Wifi "N" connectivity problems for starters. 90% of the people using N routers can only connect at G= 11mbps... you think they would have made this a priority over stupid Flash updates?????

FrancescoFebbraro

Can any one comment on what actual changes of fixes the update has brought? I saw 40 comments and got excited for a minute that there were some relevent posts =(

TheWait_IsOver

the Security Fix for Flash has been noted.
...also, seems to "flick" a little quicker when scrolling left n right thru panels as well as up n down thru the icons of apps...snappier, so I'm happier!

stevedion

I would imagine they will release the Dev build or Beta X at DevCon, don't think it will be avilable to general public until december at the earliest. RIM not smart enough to get it out fast. COuple months before iPad 3.

Anoobis

No AppWorld through tethering? First time seeing this. Everything else works thou. Strange...

P.S. New languages were added. And nothing obvious. At least at first look.

RPM_KW

Really? I have never been able to and I an fairly certain that I am not alone.

Barefoot_Kevin

It has never been available through tethering, only WiFi

Matt J

Wow! Web browsing is "snappier" and $20 bills are coming out of the speakers!

mje72571

Quick? I'm 45 minutes into it now I'm supposed to be in class. Quick???? Come on RIM, get this thing moving!

shootsscores

Mine from update to install to restart complete was done in 5 minutes.

48Forward

What the hell RIM, why can't I do an update using bridge? Keep getting the same error when opening App World "We cannot connect you to BlackBerry App World. Please ensure that your device is connected to the wireless network and try again." Bunch of crap. I should have the same capablilities in both wi-fi and bridge. C'mon man!

RPM_KW

Blame one of carriers, not sure which one though.

ps4rh

This is annoying, isn't it? Everything else works over Bridge or Tether, excepting AppWorld.

macjakjak

Is it weird that I giggled like a little girl when I saw this update?

TheWait_IsOver

hahaha yes very weird if youre a guy, jakjak!

siddo_d

Why does playbook have so many updates :|

razziberry

Another minor update *yawn*. Sorry guys, but OS2 is not going to be the game changer for PB. Android functionality is going to be limited and I doubt developers are going to work on native/android PB apps for a tablet that is percieved by the media as DOA. I'm not a troll, I read these posts all the time, but like every fan, your patience runs out. I just shipped my PB off to Best Buy trade in center.. if anyones interested you can get $250 for it right now.

TheWait_IsOver

...and I'll give you $251 for it! I'm serious. 326A431D

razziberry

I already shipped it! But, no worries you can pick one up from Craigslist for the same price, or you might just see my playbook on Best Buy's trade in site, www.cowboom.com . Then there's always another option, maybe fire sale down the road.. black friday, perhaps?!

secreto

bridge not working why is that can somebody help me?

gravymonster

This totally bricked my 9700. Apple would never let this happen. Wahhhhh.

Carlos_E

Is everyone here sarcastically excited?? They already said it’s just a Flash update…

Or do you also get like that when running Windows update or updating the virus definitions?

Definition Update for Microsoft Security Essentials - KB2310138 (Definition 1.113.1075.0) was released today !!! drive safely home.

enzo07i

i love playing lets golf 2, HD!!!!!!! worth buying

def1014

Just downloaded the everlasting light wallpaper. I do believe the open file button when a download completes is new to the browser as of this build.
BTW The wallpaper is kick ass!

TorchedNokia

If it's not V2.. It just feels like a slap in the face. Really RIM? Throw a friggin' bone above and beyond your "promises". I for one, would like to be captivated as a (fading) loyalist..

michadam

i am sure v2.0 will be out next couple of weeks for christmas season.

Playbook is way closer to a full computer than a ipad. I can download and play movies from sites that iPad cannot. Now with the great price point will be getting my kids each one for Christmass

nova_8

this minor updates although important…makes me think version 2.0 is going to be a long wait..like someone said before…at least can't they do an update for auto-capitalization…isn' tht basic?…its frustrating!

AndroidArmageddon

I have been trying all night to get this update loaded on my 64GB BlackBerry PlayingWithFire!
Seriously nothing works. I always get an error.

I have been trying all night to load the latest tablet os:
1) Through my home wi-fi connection, through a wi-fi hotspot in case there was an issue with my router
2) Through my Tethered blackberry
3)Through Blackberry Desktop

Methods 1 & 2 downloaded very quickly, the screen on playbook shows the install for a moment then I get the error
"Software Update Interrupted"

Method 3 Through BB Desktop the download takes a lot longer. You can actually see the file names of what is being downloaded so this is more than just a flash update. Long story short, after the download the first install fails, after the second attempt, I get "The loading operation was cancelled"

Anyone else having a hair pulling adventure with their Tablet
