    They are deleted...thats the good thing...

    bad thing is whenever I try and edit profiles, I am getting a uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPointerException...

    Hey Nate I think that's a great thing to investigated since with the limited memory on those 7xxx BB's they can use all the free space that's available.

    Isn't there anything you can do about the java error? I did a wipe and reload, but I don't think that will help your case. Did you do a backup of the device AFTER the ringtones deleted and BEFORE the upgrade to 4.1?

    Ok...4.0 back on the handset, no ringers, no errors, nothing...now time to redownload 4.1, edit it, and reload it and see what happens...

    HAHAHA...everyone says they miss Danica...Maybe one day I'll share all my photos from all the Indy events with you all...Depends on how much gets collected in a pool.

    Ok, back to the subject at hand, just got done reloading 4.1 again and booting up now, so lets see how it goes.

    Re: Deleted Pre-Loaded Ringers On 7290! WOO HOO!

    I believe it would be...It has nothing to do with the device itself...You have to go into the actual file and remove and edit some things...so a how to will definately be in order...and if someone isn't comfortable going in and editing files, I wouldn't recommend it. But I will do it like shawn (pentace) did on the unlocking of vendor themes and try and make it as easy as possible...

    In fact, now that I think about it, I could probably just cut and paste the edited alx file here and you could just go in, clear whats in there, and paste what I put in, save it and it should work...

    Anyone running a 7290 on 4.0 want to try that?

    So tell me, is THIS a first?

    I edit the 4.1 Tmobile OS this time...

    Load it into the device

    Reboots

    Put in password, and I get this:

    Blank screen except for the following:

    Blackberry Platform 1.8.0.146
    SavedMessages
    Options
    MemoPad
    Tasks

    HAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    No themes, no browser, nada...just that list...I wish I could get my BBScreenshot to work...This is awesome...
