    well i copied my files but i havent done a backup. would it brick my pb if i dont wipe it?

    is there any documentation to find some info on this?
    Every other update has been applied without wiping my device or bricking it so I don't see why this would be any different. I also believe those who participated in the Beta did not have to wipe their device.

    It just wouldn't make sense if you did... It would be annoying, frustrating and simply a bad move for RIM to put out an update that either bricked your device or forced you to wipe all data...

    You should be fine

    thats what i would think. but maybe they want to delete all sideloaded apps. ill be the 'trial' part but hopefully there will be no 'error' to go with it

    I want to stay up but its time for bed. As I type this laying in bed and my PB is connected to my TV reading this thread. Love this new bridge and the features but I can wait on the PB's new OS. Night to you all and I hope it comes out but I'm not holding my breath.

    I wasn't sure either, so I just wiped and downgraded both my PBs. I'm not taking any chances.

    I hear ya. I had plenty of Android apps installed. The way I see it, I am not sure what will and wont work, but I know I want this update. I'll worry about apps after the install.

    do i need to wipe before upgrade?
    You don't need to.

    Many of us who are long-time developers have a sense that it's just generally a good idea to do that, however, from long experience with such things. I debricked mine a day ago (and actually put the beta back on it again, then debricked it again, but that was just to test some code).

    You can probably safely ignore us though, as even RIM people have publicly stated that it's not necessary. (Note: there were people stating the same sort of thing in past situations where I've seen bad things happen involving betas, so that doesn't do much for me. ;-) )

    You will not lose your paid apps if you wipe it, but if you had a favourite free app which has now become paid, or (apparently) if a paid app has increased in price in an update, then you'll have to pay something (the difference in price) to get it. This is very rare.

    If you wipe you will lose all your app data, media files, and so forth. If you do a backup first, then you could restore those after the update.

    So to summarize: nobody must wipe or debrick, and it's likely nothing will go wrong if they don't do that.

    Caveat: if my PlayBook were rooted, I would definitely debrick it first if I planned to use it "for real" afterwards. If I planned only to keep toying with it, then don't bother...

    There was a rumor a while back that we would be able to bridge or tether with android phones after the OS 2 update. Was this ever confirmed?

    So a successful update will go along way towards fixing RIM's credibility. Won't do the whole job, not by a sight. But it'd be a good first step in a positive direction.


    I say good luck RIM.
