Apologies in advance if the answer is blindingly obvious but I am confused by an application message on the BDS which I always use to sync and update applications via my PC. My Bold 9900 application list displays OS v184.108.40.2064 (7.1 Bundle 2061) which I understand to be interchangeable RIM terminology. I am in the UK and my carrier is Vodafone.
In the applications screen it shows System Software 7.1.0 79.7Mb Required - but greyed out so obviously OK
There is then a red star against Blackberry 7.1.0 Core Applications 7.1.0 48.4MB Required and
on the line below - Downgrade 7.1.0 65.4MB Available - which is then shown as a Pending Action to apply.
I cannot see any difference in the information on General / Modules / Dependencies between the versions and don't understand what the meaning of the downgrade is or why I should do this as the Bold seems to be functioning OK. Can anyone explain this to me please?

I have the same issue, emailed it to the carrier manager (RIM) for my operator network. I also had to update Blackberry Identity app a few times?
another pet peeve bundle 2061 has no '2G' option, only dual or 3G.

Thanks Craig and Skyperhero for your comments. I will certainly follow Craig's advice and ignore the DTM prompt. It has always struck me as a shame that RIM, like just about every major technology business never really explain what they are doing or why and leave it to the consumers to figure out. Since it is far more cost effective for them I cannot see that state of affairs changing.

I have the same thing but I will just follow Craig's advise, just ignore it.
I also have an update for wireless music sync and if I choose to apply, both update and downgrade (core applications) will run. How can I choose only one to run (update only)? Is there an option?
