Default OS 2.0 is available but Android is missing :(

Please Login to Remove!

I installed OS 2.0 this morning but noticed the Android player is missing after the new OS installed and my tablet restarted. I also noticed that when I searched for android in App World that a lot of applications appeared...so I don't know if the player appears if you download an android app or what?

Email works great, though I can't get it to sync with my hotmail. I does sync well through ActiveSync to my outlook. One bug/draw back I can see my folders but when I select them I don't see any emails. :(

Hotmail doesn't work for me. It's not able to find the server m.hotmail.com, I am not sure if the server is mispelt?

I have managed to setup my Facebook and Linkedin. I have a Twiter account but only used it once so I don't see a need to add it right now.

Install an Android app to see the player. There isn't an icon for the player, Android apps look like regular playbook apps on the homescreen.

How exactly do you install an Android app? I don't see any on AppWorld and Android Market won't allow you to do so.

I just downloaded and installed Submarine Tunnel from App World, when I click on it it does nothing; doesn't run.

Please advise.

There is no icon silly.

Go to your system options, and select system update.

Try "Pool Break Lite by Kinetic Bytes" on version 1.8 it has always worked with my Dev 2.0 and works with the production release too.

Okay after doing a secure wipe of my PB and having it download OS 2.0; this time I didn't have to download the additional patch that it downloaded this morning after I installed 2.0 at 5am EST.

And the Android Player worked this time.

I am wondering how Cooper likes this update.

The most uniquely broken PlayBook?

Good summary of my PlayBook issue

Never getting a new one :(

Load up the apps you want. Doing it the same way you were doing it on the dev version. Sideload them. What is the issue? All the previous .bar files that were used before can found all over the place and used again.
