Default is it me or am i just not getting the point!!

right i have software version installed on my pearl, and i have the well known issue of the ring tone cancelling if the tracker is moved in the pocket! i have tried installing what i thought was V4.2.0.61 in a thread on here, but when i follow the instructions of:

install file
go to common programes/app loader and delete vendor file
start up desktop manager and run app loader

all that happens is it shows the top 2 files (being the software version i believe) to be greyed out so you can't access them. so does that mean it's already the software version i have installed. if so how do i cure the ringer silencing problem??

All sorted, i have the newest version, and MyThumbsHurt has yet again delivered me a straight forward easy answer to a problem. many thanks again

OK the newest OS you can ahev right now is thats it period. What you downloaded from JIBI was a code to allow PTT or push-to-talk on the cingular network with the 8100. The track ball is suppose to silence the ringer whn it is touched when the phone is not in standby. Standby is the holding down the mute key on the top of the phone. When in standby the phone will not stop ringing if the trackball is touched. If the BB is NOT in standby mode it will stop the ringing BUT will start back up again when the trackball stops moving/next cycle of ring...
Hope that clears things up for you
Glad I could help this stuff is not hard to grasp at all if you look at it from a childs point of view... Which to me is play with all the buttons and dont worry if it breaks thats why they have a warrenty system
