    BlackBerry PlayBook does not restart after initial Software Update

    I got this new Blackberry Playbook and I am very excited with it. I was looking for such thing from a long time and now that I have got it just really excites me to use it. But now suddenly I have been facing from some problem. The problem is that BlackBerry PlayBook does not restart after initial Software Update.What happened is that the PlayBook successfully downloaded the 270MB updates and installed it. It then restarted but all I am looking at now is colored circles.So can anyone tell me how to fix the issue that I am currently facing.

    I also got this new BlackBerry PlayBook and was trying to update on three units in-store. All four would not get past the startup screen after the initial software update to 1.0.1.1690. I am on hold with Blackberry support trying to find a solution. SO I guess that even you can contact then and see of they provide you with any solution or not .I guess that they might provide you with some kind of solution that may help you to fix the issue that you are facing.

    I Just finished talking to Blackberry technical support. I think that this is the problem that can be fixed by using the latest BlackBerry Desktop Software which is PC version only and attaching the dead Playbook to your computer and running the software update there.This is what I feel you need to do to solve the query that you were facing.So this is what you need to do to solve the query that you are facing.
