    What's it called when you want to completely remove the OS from you blackberry and reinstall it to start over from scratch? I'm trying to find a tutorial on this but forgot what it's called. I've done this before when my Storm was bricked during an OS upgrade but right now it's got too many bugs in it that I can't find a way around so I'm just gonna reinstall the OS and go from there. Any help?

    Thanks for the info but now it seems I'm having trouble wiping my blackberry. I'm using this tutorial.
    How do I wipe the BlackBerry using Jl Cmder? - BlackBerryFAQ

    Is there a newer updated one or what else can I do? I used this tutorial last time I had to reinstall my OS but now it's not working.

    EDIT: My bad. I need to install the latest Device Software on my computer. I have the Storm2 9550 running on the latest release by VZW. How do I install that to my computer and where can I find it? Thanks

    Use bbsak to wipe. You dont need to wipe your phone first. Loader.exe will do it for you. But you can find it here
    bbsak 1.7

    The newest verizon release can be found here
