    Does the playbook have it's own form of the good old engineering screens?

    I got all excited thinking this was related to the Playbook. Lol

    I wish. RIM locked down the Playbook almost as bad as Apple locked the iPad (it'd be worse without developer mode).
    I'd be frustrated about it if RiM hadn't at least made it way easier to develop for.

    There's an escreen .bar in newer PlayBook OSes...

    There is, but it's pretty much a placeholder and few of its functions appear to be complete, or on many cases even started... It's just something to watch in the future.

    If someone wants to try playing, this little app will launch the Escreen app: http://nanonet.ca/downloads/escreen.bar

    From the looks of things, the Escreen app may be quite incomplete. I still suspect it may be an empty shell with just the menus (second page, after you get past the Help Me screen), but maybe there's more to it than that.

    If you'd be interested in using the stock escreen app icon in a future release...

    IF you're interested in trying different URI's you can also check out my URI app :P
    uri.bar (it's a game too)

    Thanks SCrid2000, but I don't have a license to redistribute that, do I? ;-)

    The other published URLs available for what xsacha posted are listed here https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/...or_invoke.html

    Note that escreen:// is not there, so there could easily be other undocumented ones as well.

    By the way, I didn't get a screenshot of the first page where I entered the "codez", but it had a bunch of stuff on it including my PIN and serial number. After going past that, and for all I know I entered a wrong code and that explains why I get nothing else, I see stuff like these:

    Lol! I don't see why you wouldn't, but it sure won't be accepted to App World

    The escreen code generator for BlackBerry doesn't work (not surprisingly). I'll see if I can't figure out what the new code is in my short break between final studying.

    It always helps to type everything right. Typos are a deadly foe. The escreen key generator for BlackBerry smartphones does indeed work for the Playbook.

    SCrid2000, we've been able to get in with codes from this one: eScreen Keygen

    Use the OS version for "App Version" and, as I recall, no "0x" or anything in front of your PIN (entered in hexadecimal).

    Can this help us to root the Playbook???

    SCrid2000, no problem having it up.

    Mine's only 9786 bytes long so it's not exactly a big load on my server.

    (The fancier one from xsacha is 12.6MB! so it's a good thing he's not hosting that himself. :-) )

    In a word, no.

    Lol, I saw that and was impressed many of my .html documents aren't even that small, and some of the papers I wrote this semester are more than 10x that as just text
    xsacha's is mostly due to the game I believe.

    Hey guys, not to resurrect a thread from the dead, but for what its worth, the 4G LTE PlayBook seems to have significantly more access to the escreen than the WiFi. I'm trying to get my device MEP as I'm having a nightmarish time trying to unlock this thing. Any insight into how I could find the MEP would be great! Unfortunately the typical setting under OS Engineering Screen doesn't have the info I need...
