Default Re: Preinstalled Applications Missing

At the link the text says reloading software. Well, whatever, something went wrong. You should not have lost the stock apps. I did a security wipe one time and lost the stock wallpaper files. Shouldn't have happened, but it did. I reloaded the PlayBook software to get them back.

There is a way to reload the OS by rebooting the PlayBook while connected to the desktop software. The desktop will prompt you that it can't communicate the device and ask if you want to reload/install/whatever the device software. You will sometimes see it referred to as unbricking. You could try that, or try the "repair" again. Personally, I would do the "unbricking" procedure.
