    Hello CB,

    I was/am on Playbook OS 2.1.0.1526 - 64 GB got full to the brim in 1 year of use -
    Playbook got Painfully Slow, Bridge stopped working, Bowser became to slow to be usable, top swipe down in browser went crazy, Keyboard became slower than a useless, wait times between touch and effect rose to over 10-15 seconds in some cases like touching the battery or wifi icon in the top bar.

    I thought a Security wipe would give me a fresh start .... Umm NO!

    Security Wipe Wiped EVERYTHING except the Browser.

    So i scrambled to the forums (here), and found the problem has been reported before. but nothing is recent, everything seems to have happened with the OS 2.0 Beta. And nothing with OS 2.1

    Strangely enough i am getting a notification to update OS .....wait of it .... to the same version that i already have !

    So tell me CrackBerry Nation should i update OS OTA, or should i use some DM magic ?

    Thanks for that, if all else fails I will do the Nuke !


    OS is downloading painfully slow 29% (94 of 313MB) downloaded at this rate might take a couple hours .

    fingers crossed

    It's always very slow when you've got it right. Thats just the way it is.

    I've wiped my PB32GB a number of times (at least four to five) with no issues. This with it being encrypted and not.

    Now the reasons behind the wipe are the result of side loaded Android apps which didn't work well.
