    I've been going through the process of resetting my PlayBook for a few hours now, it's reinstalled loads of software and stuff. And while the unit is on the desktop app isn't doing much :



    It's been like this for ages.

    Not sure what the steps are at this point?

    The unusable bit is kind of annoying, it's not working and I'm not sure if I can just disconnect it or not?

    The install looks done, but I'm guessing it powered off but hadn't booted back up? Or the screen has just gone black and it hadn't actually powered off yet maybe.

    As the install part is done you should be ok to unplug it and try to manually reboot it.

    Here is a good write up of the various ways you can manually power off and reboot a PlayBook so try them all:

    let it run thru its' steps,,, if you did a wipe, it'll take awhile, & you'll have to go thru all the setup steps again,,, if you just did a reset, it shouldn't take more than 3-5 mins...

    all you actually have to do is use 2 buttons,,, using power & vol+ gets the same result,,, that 3 fingered 3 button thing is just awkward...

    I know but I thought it would be better to show the OP all the options available in one post. I hope the PlayBook is alive and breathing again?!

    At that point it's done and usually the pb boots up.
