    I don't think you'll see an update on the beta unless it's a higher number than the beta.

    I've learned my lesson after the last .668 upgrade (had to downgrade and pretty much lost everything on my PB). I'll wait until majority confirm there isn't any issues with new release or 2.1 comes...whatever comes first.
    It would be kinda funny if the OS 2.1.x update came out & then a few days later the 2.0.668 update followed it lol

    I thought when 2.0.1.668 was last released, there was also a bug update for the beta.. Also I don't like staying on the beta's because they have a few minor bugs that kinda irritate me somehow. For example, when I turn on auto brightness then turn it off, it won't let me adjust the brightness. And the last time .668 was released it overheated my playbook a bit.

    Perhaps everybody needs to be on .668 and not still on .358 in order to get 2.1.

    No the answer to this is within Bla1ze's post. It looks like they will be launching 2.1 soon so long as all the upgrade paths go smooth.

    Do you guys think I have to remove my 2.1.0.840 beta and downgrade to 2.0.1.668 to get a good upgrade to 2.1 experience?
    No, you should be able to update on top of the Beta.

    I'm on 840 too and plan to do what I always do:. Back up, wipe, update, restore.

    Doubt that is the case. If it was, the PB I just bought for my wife would have never upgraded to 2.0.1.358 as it was running an old OS version (I believe it was still OS 1.something).

    I agree. Why would they re-release a fixed old build?

    Sounds like a good plan to me. What is the easiest way to perform the wipe?

    If they did fix it, they should re-release it to the ones with .668. I for one am tired of charging my playbook everyday! (I know I can roll back. Don't want to lose anything) I checked and still 'you currently have the latest software installed'

    I have had to charge my PB daily regardless of the OS version. The thing just eats it up.

    I'm not seeing anyone else getting it on the website or any other.

    But then we are talking about RIM here.
