How to re-install OS?
Ever since upgrading to 6 I have had crashing and battery issues. How exactly do I re-install the OS? Do I just do ELITE1's OS UPGRADE GUIDE again? Or do I uninstall before installing the OS again?

You have to install the OS on the computer first. It takes longer than 1 second. I find that it usually takes about 20 minutes or so, depending.Current device: White Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB
Verizon: 8130, 8830, 8330, 9630, 9530, 9550, 9650, 9930

Also, you most likely have a bad battery. Take it to your carrier store and have it checked. If you are having random reboots and your battery is drained after boot up, it is your battery, not the os.
Is bbsak the best option then? Will it be able to restore everything I currently have on my phone?

I think there are 3 vendor files to delete.
Wiping with bbsak will completely eliminate everything you have on you phone. Once the os is loaded after wipe, it will be like out of the box. You need. To back up your profiles on desktop manager and then reload them after os install. I think you can save your apps to a folder with bbsak but you can also just reinstall them with your blackberry id in app world. Have you tested your battery?
