Default Data Wipe

Please Login to Remove!

How difficult would it be to create some type of program to wipe data from blackberries via usb cable by computer? I am trying to wipe 10+ at a time for data security purposes. I want to restore the blackberry to the condition it was in out of the box. I am looking for a faster way to do this without having to do one by one by hand.

I've not heard of a program or am smart enough to know what it would take. However, most BB's won't connect via a hub, which is pretty much the only way you'll get a bunch of them connected to a single computer.

What steps are you using to wipe them? What device models and what OS's?

10 pw wipe (if necessary), using computer to take off IT policy with BB manager, Wipe inside the security settings, clear service books.

All models and OS's

JavaLoader (included with the JDE) has a reset to factory that will wipe the device and remove the IT policy.

I think the JLCommander package can do this as well, but being familiar with JavaLoader I've never used JLCommander.

I blieve the OP is looking so some way to wipe out and restore multiple devices at a time through an automated process as they wrote "I am looking for a faster way to do this without having to do one by one by hand."

It will take some scripting but:
Code:
javaloader enum
will list devices attached. Parse the pins out of the output then:
Code:
javaloader -u -p<pin> <command>
will perform the command.

Could I possibly do this with a powered hub and a BES?
