How do I remove the 2.0 Beta from my PlayBook?

If you have already installed the preview and would like to go back to the latest production software, follow these instructions

Instructions:

Use the following steps to downgrade your tablet from a beta release to the current production release.  This procedure requires an Internet connection.

 
Please note that if you signed up for the 2.0 beta and installed it over the air you will need to wait approximatly 24 hours before you can downgrade.  Otherwise, your BlackBerry PlayBook will reapply the upgrade during the first bootup after the downgrade has been installed.  This does not apply to developers who received a BlackBerry PlayBook with 2.0 beta pre-installed.  You are able to downgrade at any time.

Turn off your device.

Open BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.

Connect your device to your computer via USB.

Enter your device password.

When Desktop Manager prompts that it cannot connect to your BlackBerry PlayBook, choose Update.  Note that this screen will dissapear once the tablet boots up.

Enter your email address or uncheck “Yes, email me when updates are available”.

Click Install if using Windows, Repair if using Mac.

BlackBerry Secret Hidden Menus

   Blackberry secret codes for hidden menus work a bit differently to all other manufacturers since you don’t use the *#code# sequence but rather activate most of the codes by holding the ALT key. As always it is right to point out that these are not some magic Blackberry hacks just the codes to access the hidden menu systems which people commonly refer to as the Blackberry secret codes. To use these codes you just have to enter the key sequence as specified.

Hidden Functions (HOLD ALT)

Code Function
ALT+NMLL Changes the signal meter from the standard bars to a decibel display, entering the code again will revert back to the bars
ALT+LSHIFT+H The Techinical information menu, if you are trying to get support or help you will probably need the information displayed here
ALT+VALD Validates the address book, can only be used in the address book
ALT+RBLD Forces the address book to rebuild, can only be used in the address book
*#06# Displays the IMEI (home screen)
ALT+RBVS Used in the browser to view the page source code, useful if you are developing applications
ALT+LGLG Displays the devices event log, if you are struggling to get BES/BIS working the information here can be very useful
ALT+SHIFT+DEL Soft reset a blackberry device, this is not a format or hard reset. Just a reboot

Smart System Codes (Type these in a message box for example while composing a new e-mail

Code Function
MYVER Displays the Software Version and Model Number of the device
LD Local Date is displayed
LT Local Time is displayed
MYSIQ Displays the device owner information
MYPIN Device PIN is displayed

Other Codes

Code Function
ALT+LEFTCAPS Displays the Language Selection Screen
LOLO Use on the Date/Time screen to display the network date and time
ALT+VIEW Displays the ID’s in the messages menu
ALT+THMN Use in the themes menu to disable themes
ALT+THMD Use in the theme menu to return to the default blackberry theme
ALT+SMON Enables the simulated WLAN wizard (WLAN Menu)
ALT+SMOF Disables the simulated WLAN wizard (WLAN Menu)
BUYR Display data and voice usage, enter at the status screen (options>status)
TEST Performs a full device test, enter at the status screen (options>status)

Sim Card Shortcuts (no ALT required, found under Options>Advanced>Sim Card)

Code Function
MEP1 Enable/Disable Sim personalization
MEP2 Enable/Disable Network personalization
MEP3 Enable/Disable Network subset personalization
MEP4 Enable/Disable Service provider personalization
MEP5 Enable/Disable Corporate personalization

A lot of the Blackberry Secret codes are actually shortcuts to the hidden menu areas that people are simply not aware of.
