It also does NOT wipe out Third Party applications.

A security wipe only erases customer data.

Very true. The simplest method for that is to delete the third party apps first, yourself from Options > Advanced > Applications, the do the security wipe per the above post. If any third party apps remain, they may need removing manually via Desltop Manager > Application Loader.

Will this put my BBerry in any danger or is this software quite stable?
And i will need this too?
BlackBerry® Software Updates
Who developed Jl_cmder? Someone on here? Or is it a BBerry app?
Could I do this?
What to do next if Jl Cmder will not connect and wipe - BlackBerryFAQ
But just start the program with out using the CMD? This seems safer, and i really don't want something to go wrong.
Sorry i am new to this, I am a computer guy, but I just want to make sure that i get this right.
Thanks to all for the prompt and informative responses.

If there is a password, and I don't know if there is, will this delete it?

You got a BlackBerry and you don't know the password?
