I don't know if it will work with the 957 as i've never had one but tmy usual method is using the "factory reset" option of JL_Cmder.

Javaloader, the basis for JL_CMDER, is for Java based BlackBerrys. The 957 is one of the original BlackBerrys and are written in C++ (I believe). To erase them, you need a special program called "Programmer.exe" which is the grandfather of Javaloader.

RIM957, do you have working cradles for the 957? They are useless without it.
