JL_Cmder removes the entire OS from the device, leaving it at a JVM 507 error. The security wipe only removes the data from the device and leaves the OS in tact.

However, you don't need to run either when upgrading your device. I never wipe my device prior to upgrading.

Some people say they do to get a "clean" install, but a wipe is done during the install process prior to loading the new OS. I never ran into any issues doing it this way.
