Also I recommend you do a wipe with BBSAK and after a clean installation of the OS of your preference.
you will not regret it!There are 10 types of people; those who understand binary, and those who don't...

For a quick way you can wipe the phone I guess you could just put a passcode on the phone then get it wrong ten times... Lol. I've never tried it (might not delete all the info...) but when my phone says that information will be erased upon failure, I tend to take it seriously.

Akavbb: I believe you meant 'You use BBSAK to do a wipe prior to installing the new, clean OS, not after. What reason would there be to wipe a new OS you just installed?
OP: if you are going to use a program like BBSAK and have never done a wipe/reload before, you should do it as Howarmat has instructed and you will achieve the same or similar results. Good Luck!
