Will that set me back to factory, or just delete all data, such as e-mail and third party apps. I really want to take it back to factory. I will try it, and see what happens, but thought I would ask.

The steps above should work.

You could also use JL_Cmder and select the factory restore option.

Does the JL_Cmder do a javaloader -wipe, because that probably isn't what the OP wants.

I take it you've never used JL_Cmder. There is an option to wipe the handheld (which is what you're referring to) and there is another option to restore to factory defaults.
