    Lightbulb PlayBook bb10?

    So always keep myself updated on here and saw the dev alpha has an update with BBM now I also looked and saw you could extract and update a rooted PlayBook with the dev alpha update.

    Now what I wanted to know was is it possible to update a PlayBook with os 2.1 to the dev alpha bb10 if some one extracted it? I know how to sideload if needed.

    Yes it is possible. You don't even need a rooted PlayBook to do that.

    Oh really? How would I go about doing it, would it be the same as any other os (I have updated my playbook and phone numerous times)? Just need someone to extract it now aha

    The process is not the same as you would normally update your OS. I will try to have the .bar files as well as a tutorial on how to do that later.

    That would be ace! I was watching the demo of bb10 it looks amazing and so fluid with the 'flow' and 'hub'. As soon as I heard about the dev alpha getting the update I was wanting it on my playbook aha

    I had a go at this with one of the earlier releases. Didn't have much joy as when going through the setup screens the resolution changed to portrait and i couldn't select my wireless network.

    If you need someone to test let me know and I will do it tonight! am desperate to have a play with the bb10 on the playbook

    If you could test it that would be real good, the update has bbm and few other native apps so hopefully this will work on the playbook :d

    Right, but don't expect it to be as fluid as what depicted on the videos, its still young and technically this version of BB10 is not meant for the PlayBook.
