    Go to options security options and general settings if your on 4.7 and wipe. If your on 5.0 its a onboard wipe which wipes all contacts and applications. Basicallg back yo factory. Like when you first bought it.

    Okay that is what I thought but I don't do this when I perform a JL wipe, I don't think both are necessary.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I do a bbsak or jl wipe, load the os, THEN do security wipe. This way, the security wipe gets rid of corrupt traces of OS. After all that, I restore.

    This is something that BBC experimented with and found that wiping apps like JL do not fully remove everything from the phone. However, when doing a JL wipe in conjunction with a security wipe no traces of previous OS's were visible.
