    A few others (im one) dodged the bullet and didnt download it either before it was pulled. I worked some long hours and had not got around to downloading it before RIM got wind it was bunk and pulled it.

    Brother your not alone, many people including me didn't upgrade because the OS didn't have anything new, just some patch work.
    I feel sad for those people who downloaded it

    Well, I'm on the 2.1 beta and I received the 3mb OS file that came out with this "update" and I've noticed improvements in the browser, bridge connectivity (distance PB has to be from the phone has increased), and over all smoothness of the OS has improved. This maintenance update actually did some good on the beta.

    And my wife did the update to the .688 and she is experiencing NO issues, and even SHE has noticed improvements and I would categorize her as a "Novice" (browsing facebook) user. So....

    We're in the A okay category I guess....

    Two PB's updated without issue. I use to get some keyboard stutter occasionally and that has either been fixed or I just haven't seen it yet. I would agree that the bridge distance seems greatly improved. I don't know how that happens with a software update but it is so.

    Don't feel sad for all of us. My battery life has improved. Browser did close once by itself, but I rather like improved battery a lot.

    I updated to the new OS and haven't had any issues whatsoever. The browsing seems a little faster and im noticing slightly better standby battery life.

    I don't know why you would feel bad for those of us who downloaded it, after a weekend of semi-heavy use I can't see any differences between this and the previous builds.

    Hopefully the next version will be 2.1 official...

    I've heard if you don't touch your PlayBook in two weeks, it falls off.

    I updated as well & mine's working great. Games, Kobo, browser - all perfect. No heat or battery drain here. I have no regrets but do feel bad for those who had problems with it.

    Almost wonder if the issues were more hardware related maybe? 16gb vs 32gb vs 63gb?
    Ours both got the update, one on beta - one not. Haven't seen any issues yet - both feel pretty much the same as before.

    I updated and it seems ok(so far).

    The browser really seems to be faster, but then again i didnt count how much time it took to go to a page before the new patch lol

    So, so far so good... Let's hope it stays this way...

    All is great here after the upgrade. Browser seems better, some apps that used to lock up run good now. Battery life is still excellent, not running hot.

    The .668 update improved the responsiveness of my Bluetooth keyboard and I noticed none of the problems others have been posting about. However, I have always kept my BlackBerry PlayBooks up to date with the latest official releases so maybe that accounts for the smooth experience with .668. Now. awaiting 2.1.x but not very patiently I will confess.

    I thought the 3mb was just a patch for the flash vulnerabilities?
