Default Wiping a device

Please Login to Remove!

What does wiping a device actually do anyway?
I moved and upgraded BES 4.0 to 4.1 (Clean install on new hardware) because we used MSDE (20 users maybe someday a wopping 40) I'm wirelessley activating all existing users on the new installation. Last year when the DST debacle was going on I pushed the DST patches to the devices and all went well. I am being forced to wipe the devices now because the new service book is being rejected by the devices on the new activation. After the activation is succesfull, I notice the existance of the previously "pushed" DST patch? I would have thought that wiping the device would have wiped the patch?

Wiping a device only removes data, not applications. You'll have to either manually remove it or send a 'remove' software configuration from the BES to the device to get rid of that patch.

I'm a fan of using Jl_cmder to wipe it and then install the newest OS (which most likely wouldn't need the DST patch anyway).

JL_CMDR FTW. Doing that right now on a few devices I'm refurbishing.
Best. BlackBerry Tool. Ever.

You can't forget the BBCheck utility. That thing saved me so much time finding MAPI/CDO and system info that admins don't know about their system. But you are right, JL_CMDR is awesome. If it's not working blow it away and start over!
