Default remove application

How do I format it so its back to factory default, cause WIPE does not remove the application and my blackberry is crashing...

The application I want to remove dont even figure in the option - applications menu...

Need a way to restore to factory default with NO user data or Application data...

Locate a copy of "Javaloader" on these forums.
Download and unzip it.
Connect the BB, open a DOS prompt and type

javaloader -usb wipe

That will wipe out the OS and data completely. Nothing left at all. Then you have to completely reload the handheld operating system.

Download JL_Cmder from the link in my signature. This will format the BlackBerry. No software, no OS, no nothing except an 505/507 error. Use the instructions provided HERE to download the latest OS and reinstall it. When the application loader says its finished, the BlackBerry still has 15-30 minutes to go. In other words, be patient.

Huh? You opened up an 18 month old thread and wrote that.
Let's try again. In a complete sentence and without cursing. Please.
