    Blackberry Bold - Unlocking & Wiping handheld

    Advertisement



    How can I wipe my handheld device?

    Also does anyone know if wiping the device will make the phone sim lock again. Since I have unlocked it but no longer have the code. I am also having trouble downgrading from .190, can anyone provide assistance.

    No, wiping the device will not simlock it. Do you just want to wipe the device clear of personal data? If so, go to:

    Options > Security Options > General Settings > [Hit Menu] > Wipe Handheld.

    To downgrade, you must wipe the OS off of the device. To do so, you will need to download a utility called JL_Cmdr .

    It is relatively straightforward, but be sure you backup your information.

    You can also use the apploader in the RIM program files to downgrade. It will warn you that the files you want to load are older than the one currently on the device so just say yes to the load.
    Device history: 8100 > 8320 > 8900 & 9530. Keep crackin'
