    Why are you formatting your PB?

    If by formatting you mean wiping, then yes it's normal.

    yes wiping it had lots of junk in it.I go to security then securely wipe and this happens
    So this is normal right?? every time I securely wipe my playbook I have to install the 333mb update.So irritating
    I thought update was stored in playbooks nand/flash!!

    Probably because wiping returns your PB to it's original out of the box OS, which was not the current OS. The update is to bring it up to the current OS.

    this is one of the weirdest thing i heard formatting a device clears its updates, no more tools needed for downgrading then lol

    Formatting a drive completely erases the drive. Formatting the PB hard drive would render the PB useless.

    It's a very good thing because if you run into any issues as the result of a hiccup during an update or due to side loading a dodgy application you can always return to a known safe state by wiping. I'm a big fan of it especially for the non-geeky user who sometimes gets their device messed up by playing with settings they don't understand and thus need a way to get back to a known good state. In theory, a back up and restore is easier but only *if* a back up was done in the first place.

    Yes but you can always reset to factory defaults if someone messes up with the settings ,no need to wipe the entire os updates. you get around 1 gb of update every time you wipe your pb lol
