    Has anyone else had trouble running a security wipe? I picked up a leap on the recent "sale" but wasn't pleased with the backlight leaks, so after 24 hours of use I performed a security wipe. It ran for over 7 days and got to 99%.

    Figuring something was wrong, I long pressed the power button and rebooted, starting over. It took a day to get above 90%, another to get to 97, another to 98, and now it's back to 99 after 4 days.

    I am going to return it to Blackberry and pick one up at a local Staples now that the price has dropped and hope for a better screen. However I can't really send it back like this.

    Anyone know of a way to cancel the wipe or anything I can try? I tried presiding volume up plus down for a long time as someone suggested on another form - nothing happened.

    By the way I like the phone, it's a solid device and I prefer I the screen to the Z30's (if I can find one with fewer leaks).

    Just download one of the 10.3.2 autoloaders for the Leap and run it, it'll wipe the device so that you can return it.

    Do you know where I might find it? I see on Blackberry's developer site a list of autoloaders, but none for the leap's model number (STR100-2). I've looked around a bit elsewhere but can't find it. Apologies of I'm missing something obvious - I've never done this before. Thanks again.
