    I have spent all morning reading through the forums trying to find a solution and all I'm left with is this overwhelmed feeling. I registered and updated my PB to the current beta. this morning I decided to downgrade using the Debrick method posted all over the forums. Well everything was going fine and then during the installation of the OS I got an error that the OS update failed and to try installing again. Every time I retry the same happens. so I have a PB that will only flash red led and nothing else. I have tried everything I have come across.

    Have you tried to reboot your computer and trying again?

    I had the same problem with OS2.0 beta and customer support sent me this website on how to restore my PB to factory specs. It worked fine. Just be sure it has been at least 24 hours from the time you registered as a developer to get the beta. It installs OS 1.07 but then it will update to the latest version of OS 1.08.
