    HI......hopefully I will find some insight in here! For the past month I had been having issues with the PB keeping connected to home wifi.....wouldn't recognize SSID or IP when logging on manually and wouldn't logon using password either.....the only way I could get in was to do a Security Wipe and start over as just deleting settings and re-entering wouldn't work.......I have sorted some of that issue out by replacing my faulty wifi modem and now have a consistent connection. However now I have lost all of my icons after the reboot from latest OS update.....I literally only have the browser icon left on my PB. The PB says I do not have any apps stored on the machine, my photos, camera all factory installed apps are gone as well! I have tried to connect PB to the desktop software, but PB is not being recognized by my PC either, not even as a storage device........I am totally confounded with this. Currently I have run the battery to empty and will recharge and restart. Hopefully things will reappear, but I am not feeling very optimistic about this!!

    Do you think this is the end of what once was a great relationship with my Playbook and all it's great apps?! I can't even take photos/video.....it is literally just a web surfer now!

    Hi sounds like what happens when you do a wipe. If you can get dm to recognize it you can do a debrick to get the apps back.

    Search for Debrick PlayBook here.... There are several ways to do it, some more complicated...

    Hopefully you have a recent backup. Should be able to get an autoloader to catch the PlayBook after you restart it and then reload the OS (and wipe the device).

    Backups are worthless...until you need one.
