tell me if this is possible
when you connect to the internet your playbook searches the rim server for updates to the playbook os would it be possible to trick my playbook into thinking that its connect to rims server when it is conected to my computer and downgrade the os that way

(Simply because the message isn't long enough to post, I'll add an explanation why: Without knowing the PB private key [which as the name suggests, is private, and only RIM have access to it], you could not modify the OS files in any way, meaning the PB would still recognise them as an old version of the OS, and it would therefore not work. There was at a time a process for downgrading using a proxy server in this manner, but that was before RIM started blacklisting OS versions in NVRAM, which is what prevents downgrades now)UberCurrency - Free currency conversion app for PlayBook.

That, and PB will not take any OS without the fingerprint.dat which was first introduced in 184.108.40.20671. Honestly though, tell me why you would want to downgrade the OS? To root? Rooting doesn't grant you much. You can sideload without it. It gives you access to android market? Sure, but most apps don't work.
