    I'm curious what people find has changed / improved besides and or including the reported update to Air and Flash.

    What can the Flash player do now that it couldn't before?

    The updated fixed some Flash sites that had requested you update your version of Flash before they would work.

    I was going to point you to the orginal "Findings, Fixes and Bugs thread" but there isn't really one.

    But that is what is being discussed in the http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...3/index13.html thread.

    But basically no one has found much of a difference. Most likely it security fixes like your monthly updates for Windows....

    I don't have any examples, as I never ran into the problem. I am in Canada and may not have access to some of the sites mentioned in other threads. I think it was mostly related to US network television sites and perhaps Amazon Prime videos.

    I have noticed a lot more whining on the forum after the update.

    I've known less moaning after messy divorces.

    An update to bb world so you still buy apps, a flash player update and perhaps a few core app updates. Nothing huge or to get excited over but if you're using it, it should be updated.

    177mb is not a small amount of code, the one before was only a couple of MB for a flash update.

    Didn't you're mother tell you that size doesn't matter? That's it's how you use it?

    Fact remains it has done next to nothing to improve the playbook and it certainly added nothing. If anything they made the email app unusable now for both yahoo and gmail. Flash sites that didn't work before, still don't work . Update my arse.

    The only thing mine does faster since the update is collecting dust.

    I had the same problem. I have the LTE PB. I took out the SIM, turned off wifi, and plugged it into my computer with USB cable. After recognition, Blackberry desktop software prompted me to load new update. Took me a few tries but eventually got it.

    What a shame. Could have at least fixed Facebook and even add Twitter. Even more than those two what ever happened to add BBM stand alone app?? They give it to all the other platforms and said to hell with the PlayBook. C'mon BlackBerry!!! You owe us at least one more update (a real one) before pulling the plug.

    Back it up. Turn it off. With DM open and the PB off, plug the PB and choose update and or repair. It will erase everything though.

    Note that removing the SIM card could be key. I didn't do that when I updated my 4G LTE to .1753 using desktop software and I lost Video Chat and other apps not in BlackBerry World. BB tech support solved the problem but it took a few weeks to work through the process!

    Followed your procedures and I'm still not seeing the new software load. Did this actually work for you?

    Have you tried turning off your wifi? It worked for me when I did. Desktop notified me that I had an update. Might have to try a few times like I had to.

    It always did in the past. Are you sure your pb was off? Dark room, screen black?

    One of the major fixes in this update corrects the problems members were having paying for items on app world. Makes sense, if you can't take money off customers you don't have a business. You will have to enter your payment details again though after you upgrade.

    Big item I noticed this evening was free bus Wifi kept working no problems on my bus route home. Before update I generally couldn't use it. Much improved connection to public wifi!!
