After I updated my BlackBerry Identity(1 day ago) module to 188.8.131.52, my touch screen is acting strange (on my Torch 9800). It is most obvious when I use a game that I need to slide left to right (in the bottom of the screen). I try to slide to the left and it keeps going to the right and stays there, almost impossible to move it to the left and when I succeed it returns to the right if I touch the screen again.
I did delete it from the software list (and reboot), at that point my screen works fine, but BlackBerry world is not working (missing blackberry identity) and blackberry protect also not working. So I re-installed the Blackberry protect module and the same thing started again.
When I use the scroll, it works as well as it use to. When I use the touch screen with no sliding (only select touch) it works ok.
Will there be a fix or how can I go back to my old version of blackberry identity ?

I did the full backup & "re-image " my phone using my firmware from my service provider (found on BlackBerry website). And I realize that the problem was hardware issue not software. It was a really strange coincidence. As long as I don't use my touch screen too often I can manage (no more games!). I'll try to tough it out until I get my hands on a new phone. Thanks!
