    I had a 16gb Playbook like 2 weeks ago, with the new .668 software. I had to take it back, then today I got the new 64gb one, but the .668 software aint there. So I cannot restore the files I had on the old OS. What should I do?

    Wrong. Load the beta 2.1 and restore your backup.

    Because most of the ppl are ok with the OS they have, or they just are affraid to mess with the one they have.

    And for RIM, its not finished, so they don't release it...

    Keep in mind though, that a Beta for the PlayBook is not a leak. RIM releases the betas for devs to try their apps and for advanced users to report on bugs.

    .840 is actually a solid version, compared to all other betas we had. most people wouldn't even know it is a beta.

    I had the same problem and the upgrade to 2.1 and restore of the backup has fixed everything. It was a suggestion from Diegonei.
    Besides that, 2.1 works flawless.

    Sorry RIM left you hanging like that. I'm with you and am not comfortable using the dev beta either. To those that are, more power to you. If you decide to use it be sure to read the threads about issues some are having with it because there are some. Hopefully there will be an update that addresses the botched release of. 668....I'm sure it's coming soon.....

    It is patently absurd that rim still has not addressed the issue. They do act as if everything was perfect and that nothing out of sorts occurred. When in fact they released an OS with problems and screwed up quite a number of peoples' pb's. There is no excuse for such poor corporate operations.
