I released a bar to App World Portal as version 1.1 of my app.
I then realized that i had changes to make, so I released another version of my signed bar under version 1.0.2.
I was under the impression that I would be able to remove the v1.1 of my app and replace it with 1.0.2 but instaed I had to do another "release" and add the new 1.0.2 version bar to the list.
The pictures show what I'm seeing on my app world account.
I priced the v1.1 as 99cents but the 1.0.2 was treated as an upgrade so I kept it free. But really, I want them to look at the 1.0.2 version, and want THAT to be released to App World, for 99cents and also qualify for the free PlayBook...
Any ideas, if I've messed up? Or what changes I can make?

I would go into the vendor portal and then Edit the pricing for the Release 1.0.2 and make it priced at $0.99
I think after App approval, the higher version number is what is shown in App World when you Post if for Sale.
So, I think you may eventually have to submit a Release 1.2 or 2.0 with the latest updates.

So I have to add a new product? And not just a release to the old product?
Is there any way to delete all the old stuff i submitted and start fresh?

Follow the exact same procedure you did when you submitted version 1.0.2 except this time submit it as 1.1.1 or a version greater than 1.1 this will ensure that the proper version is tested and submitted to app world. This will also minimize any possible confusion by the testers over at RIM.

So I'll release it as 1.2...thats fine.
But just to be sure..."add a release" right? (as opposed to adding a whole new product, with the same name?)
And should I price this as $0.99 as well?

Yeah I added a price for the original version.
But I figure if the original version hasn't been approved yet, and I set this new version for free, will people downloading it for the first time still be charged the $0.99?
And one last question, I'm guessing I'm doing this right.....all I have to do is change the version number in the xml file, and just do the "double signing" process right?...thats it?
no need to create a new certificate, or csk file or get a new csj file....just have to:
1. change version number.
2. double sign it.
So sorry for bothering you guys. I just want to get this correct before I make more mistakes
