Default PlayBook Revival

Please Login to Remove!

Just in time for its EOL, I'm buying my very first PlayBook tomorrow. It's $25, and the owner claims its broken. He sent me a picture of the start screen where it gets stuck and won't load. I'm pretty sure I can revive it.

My question is, has anyone ever tried getting BlackBerry Desktop Manager to run on Ubuntu? I have an HP Mini 311 laying around with an older version of Ubuntu installed; I'd like to use it instead of my PC, which is currently put away somewhere.

I guess this is really a General Discussion question, so feel free to move it.

I have not heard of it working on Ubuntu

while it boots press power button down for 30 seconds and see if it reboots after

You can sync files using Ubuntu, but not with the desktop software.

wifi file sharing works well, I use that more often than wired and I can upload a video for kids while they play a game on it
