Question jl_cmder 'wipe' feature not a true wipe?

Please Login to Remove!

First off, apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum.

Here is my situation: I wanted to clean roll back to an older OS version. I removed the .384 OS from my computer using uninstall, then manually deleted left over files and entries. I then proceeded to install the .359 OS onto my computer. Once I had done this, I used jl_cmder to wipe my device. It rebooted to the expected screen (circle with a slash through it). I then started DM and proceeded to load the older version of the OS I had installed onto my computer. Once I had started the process I got the warning that the files I was going to load were older than those on my device.

So my question is, if I performed a true wipe, why did I get this message?

Because there is something left on your BlackBerry or you would not be able to even get the slash screen. Think about it.

Thanks for the rude response.

There is no guarantee that the BIOS (I will call it that, not knowing what the proper term is) is updated along with the OS. If I install Vista on my XP machine, has my BIOS changed? No. Think about it.

Now if you can confirm that the "something" that was left on my device was updated from OS ver .359 to .384, then you would be correct.

Take my response the way you will, I can't control the way you think. Nothing rude was intended. Your BlackBerry device asked if you wanted to install older files, so yes, that confirms "something" remains. Wiping as you did is the cleanest process.
Windows and RIM are not comparable, so I won't.
