...except this  is not an isolated incident. I've had similar
experiences. Sometimes  a "simple" update of one app through App
Manager is enough to cause problems.

As for reflashing, Chinook is still better than Diablo as far as
stability and certain apps working properly. I've had my tablet long
enough that it came with Bora, and there were compelling reasons to
upgrade to Chinook. The final Chinook upgrade was a nightmare because
the backup/restore didn't work and I had to reinstall everything from
scratch. The only compelling reason to upgrade to Diablo thus far is
the "flashless" updates, except people have been reporting similar
breakage with those...

So get off your high horse: these issues affect everybody, including
the novices.
