    I'm not sure if a restart will do the trick or not but I would try that first. If that doesn't work you might need to do a security wipe and reload the OS.

    Hopefully you have backed up everything before you installed the OS the first time. If not hook it up to Desktop Manager and see if it will.

    How long have you let it set. I assume you only have the "circles" screen?

    Try the Debrick method....

    Perform a backup of your pb if you can using Desktop Manager or, at least, manually coping any unique data, photos, voice recordings, documents, etc.

    1) Turn your playbook OFF by holding down the power button
    2) Let your playbook sit for about 10 minutes as earlier suggested.
    3) After letting the PB sit (and still powered off) open up the Blackberry Desktop Software (the latest version)
    4) Once the Blackberry Desktop Software is opened, use the USB Cable and hook the PB to the PC.. THEN power on the Playbook
    5) A screen will show on your computer showing that the device cannot be found
    6) Click on Update. It will take awhile

    Debrick did not work? Well, then I suggest calling them and explaining it worked fine before and THEIR UPGRADE killed it. Good luck
