You might want to try to wipe and restore your PlayBook before assaulting a BlackBerry employee. There may be a corrupt file or something went wrong during the update, it can happen.HTC One Mini and Blackberry Playbook 64GB

I updated my Playbook on the day of the software release and I haven't had any issues yet. Performance has been great and no noticeable change in the battery life. Jumping to a lawsuit is a bit of an extreme reaction, especially before troubleshooting the problem. I would recommend trying the security wipe as mentioned above or at least reaching out to Blackberry support for help.

For me, since the update, it's worst. My playbook is a complete mess. every time i try to have access to the configuration menu, it freeze.
I'm a new user of this kind of device and it does not help a lot.
P.S: sorry for my english!

I feel my faith in BB's ability to deliver waning....the promises and assertions of just a few months ago increasingly hollow...and I say that after a successful .1526 update....

The only issue I've had with .1526 is my browser froze on 2 separate occasions. The first was was really bad,I had to reboot. I was doing some flash streaming on a website and all of sudden it crashed. Second time it crashed on the twitter website.Z10 Stl3

Yes my battery life has been greatly reduced as well, but browser speed has improved and no other faults. Last night it was at about 40% when I put it in standby and this morning it had shut off due to being at 0%. Reported to RIM and they suggested security wipe and reload of software, what a pain in the arse!!! Have to backup tonight and try reload.

The bug in the latest IOS6 update in the apple just took down all the email systems using microsot calander. The update cannot be reversed. causing sever problems for companies that opted to go with Apple.

Just downloaded my update, everything seem faster. No Issues. After learning of the Apple bug and reading this I thought that I was going to be in trouble. But everything fine.

I had backed up a little while ago, so didn't repeat that.
I did update with charger attached (as BB suggested).
Also let it do it's thing with no interference from me.
Used a known good WIFI signal.
Let PB restart and re-logged in.
Everything works fine.
Perhaps some have a glitch in wifi signal or did other things with PB while downloading? Learned in Windows world not to mess with device while downloading updates.
Sorry to hear some had problems. I would suspect wifi glitches causing corrupted files. Wonder if PB checks downloaded files before starting installation?

The .1526 update was smooth and the performance of the BlackBerry PlayBook has been smooth as well. Sometimes though a full backup and security wipe is the only way to fix problems experienced by some people which is unfortunate.

Try a hard reset first, if that doesn't work then try a security wipe.
To do a hard reset hold down the volume + and - keys at the same time as the power button until the screen goes totaly blank let it reboot

I feel kinda bad now for OP because I specifically wanted to sign in on CB and comment on how I think the latest update is the best to date. The browser is a lot faster, the keyboard is a lot responsive and I'm loving it so far!In BBRY we trust
