Default Trackball Select/Enter Fix

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,
I had an issue with my trackball select not working (scrolling and side to side worked fine, but the button stopped working, you feel it click). I made a fix. Here's the document. I hope it helps someone out.

That is a very detailed guide. I really appreciate that you have taken the time to put this together. If you could possibly update your guide to include more detailed/better quality pictures of the procedure, that would be great.

LOL... its a good guide. I just remember doing this myself without any instructions and it would have been nice to have pictures.
