    Lightbulb [SOLVED] BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha OS on Playbook problem

    Okay, so I have PlayBook with OS 10.0.4.197 on it. I install it via DingleBerry (I forgot the version). I successfully install it and it worked fine, until I decide (maybe this is stupid thing, but yeah, I'm a newbie) "wipe" my PlayBook, hoping I can restore my default OS.
    After reboot, on home screen I can see only 2 icons! Browser and Setup. When I try to connect my PlayBook to my laptop, my laptop can't detect my PlayBook! I don't know what to do now, I tried to search on Google about this problem but I can't find anything.

    What must I do? Now I'm hopeless. Here's the picture and proof:
    The PlayBook

    and the OS

    Thanks,

    EDIT:

    SOLVED!

    Guys! I can FIX it! I went to Settings, and then went to "Storage&Sharing", theres an option named "USB Connections", I switched to "Connect to Windows".
    Next, I did this step:

    Now my PlayBook running OS 2.1.0.1526. Thanks for all your help! I appreciate all of you. Sorry if my English are bad. Lol.

    I just did it. I turned off the PlayBook, open BB Desktop Software, and I plug my PlayBook with turned off condition. But, when I plug my PlayBook, nothing happened. The PlayBook boot up and turned on, and I got this notification:

    Well, did I kill my PB?

    You didn't killed your playbook. Try to reinstall desktop manager so it forgets your playbook. Then re-do the steps

    please dont install the Dev Alpha OS on your playbook !
    it works fine for developers, but it is not fully functional. not all the apps are working etc. so dont give it a try !

    Edit; interface is the same, but sometimes the keyboard laggs. Not an ideal OS

    no.
    use cfp (command line BB update tool):
    - switch off PB and connect to USB;
    - cfp.exe wipe (usually it's necessary when downgrade from 10.x to 2.1.x)
    - cfp.exe load coreos.xxx.signed with version 2.1.
    images of 2.1 can be found at BlackBerry PlayBook OS Downloads (except the 2.1.0.1526.zip , which is broken file now)

    Interface is the same? so BB10 update for playbook will not bring any interface changes?

    I did try that OS Beta BB10 too with my other PB... but I found it useless and buggy, so I went back to latest PB official OS... but I didn't do the security swipe... instead, I just turn off my PB, connect it to Desktop Software and turn it on... the Desktop Software Manager then ask if I want to update to latest OS, and that's it... I press YES and when I got back, it's ready for set-up...

    I downloaded CFP_3.9.0.175 and CFP_3.9.0.190, when I opened it, the CFP only opened about 3 seconds and then quit by itself.

    Edit: I plugged my PlayBook on another laptop and PC, but still it did'nt connected. My PlayBook can't be detected.

    CFP_3.9.0.190 is OK.
    it's a command-line tool - and in console you had a list of commands to use (I already write them in previous post)
    PB not detected due to lack of drivers(or they outdated and not support 10.4.x)

    So do you have any ideas how to fix it?
    Or I should go to BlackBerry sevice center or something to fix it?
    But I want to repair it by myself if I can, and I won't waste my money (but if I should I will, lol)

    well, I already explain a procedure to restore PB OS to original 2.1 (without BB Desktop Software and/or DingleBerry) - as I understand, it's what you try to do before wipe (and need to restore normal functionality of you PB).
    In case, if you don't really know, how to use cfp - better to ask somebody, who more familiar with cmd-line tools, or use service center (nut since BB never release a BB10 for playbook, it can cost you some money and removing warranty ).
    FYI: I use BB 10.0.6.671 on my playbook (I am developer), and it can be sync with BB Desktop 7.1.0.32 (bundle 33). but it's exactly, as yours - only two apps - browser and setup.

    From your pics I gather that the swipe down menu still works. Click on software updates while connected to wifi. Click check for updates then install. 2.1 is the latest os and if its not installed it will be there to upgrade to.
