as for the BB app world make sure before you reload your BB that you have a Blackberry ID already assigned to your blackberry, having this will allow you to download your paid apps through BB appworld and not charge you as it will already be attached to your ID In the "My World" section in BB app world once you log back in with your blackberry ID.

hope this helps if anything is unclear let me know I will help with what I can
Not sure that that's the way to fully "wipe" the device. To correctly wipe a device and perform a fresh install, as you are explaining, you have to use a tool like Javaloader...which effectively wipes the OS and makes the device unusable, so it will not boot. Then, you use loader.exe to install the new OS. The user can either selectively restore, or restore the entire file, assuming they have backed it up prior to the full wipe. Your method won't wipe the device fully, so I have seen anyway.
