I have only done this once, several months ago, but it may require DM to save the apps (a little fog here).
    That doesn't wipe your OS though. Only your data files. To totally wipe you need to do the Security Options wipe then a JL/BBSAK wipe.

    Yes, the Security Options wipe is essentially what the OP did to his phone.

    May seem risky yes, hence the disclaimer, but i have yet to have a single problem with my phone after doing this. What are the chances that i happened to interrupt it RIGHT after it finished wiping apps? very slim i have to say at the very most. I didnt write this post for everyone to go out and try it, just thought it may be useful in some way for developers to add in an option for app removal only on a similar program.

It wont be .75 out of the box but whatever os you installed
    Right but its not the same.. you would have to see it to konw what i mean. im aware of the wipe option in the menu :P

    Though it does have a similar effect i still think developers should give more options as far as wiping/restoring since backups are kind of a pain, its like reloading a computer with a bad image just to get your contacts and things back.

    Every time I wipe my phone I can save my 3rd party apps, contacts, memos are deleted....etc. But my modules stay the same. How do I do a true wipe of my phone?

    I would suggest you back everything up (including 3rd party apps), then do the following: options>security options>general settings>blackberry key>wipe handheld,
    Followed by either JL_Cmdr or BBSAK wipe....then load desired OS.

    Many people noticed that the phone behaves much better after a security wipe

    I've done the security wipe and you are correct, my phone did behave better and loaded up 42, but I do not have enough apps on my phone, to be loading up that low. I have tried JL_Cmdr, but having issues with vista.

    Have you tried BBSAK? It plays nice with Vista.
