Force your Blackberry PlayBook into updating the OS

This is not going to be a plug in it, click it and you’re done sort of thing. Sorry, but you will have to put a bit of effort into getting this update. Wouldn’t that just be too easy? This takes a while (approx 30 to 40 min) to do, so go make yourself a sandwich.

So here’s how you do it:
* Open BlackBerry Desktop Software on your PC
* Do full backup on your tablet (very important!)
* Go to Device > Update
* You will get a message “No Update Available” (a lie)
* Press ok, leave your PlayBook connected via USB
* Press the Power Off app then select Restart
* Once the PlayBook boots up, you will be prompted to do the update (so now the truth comes out!)
