Default Desktop Manger keeps telling me I have updated software

Please Login to Remove!

After I updated to T-Mobile 4.2.0.64 a few months ago, I noticed that every time I plugged in my Pearl, the Desktop Manager told me I have software updates availible. Today, I downloaded 4.2.1.102 (TIM Italy) and proceded to go through the upgrade process. I did upgrade successfully ( i.e; no error messages, all my aps were there, etc), but it appears that I only re-applied the 4.2.0 software over again. How do I get the 4.2.1 upgrade?

I searched for this particular issue but had no luck. If I missed something significant,I apologize in advance.

It gets overwritten each time you install the new software on your PC. You have to do delete that file every single time you install a device update package on the PC before you re-sync the device or it will try to downgrade (still calling it an update) you to the latest official version of the software for your carrier.

Good stuff, guys, and quite honestly I can't believe I overlooked this step. However-when I look in the loader file for 4.2.1.102, the only .xml file I see is PkgDBCache.xml. Same with 4.2.0.64.

Never mind. Found it and moved it. I'm installing the software now.

Same results after upgrading again. Still on 4.2.064.
