Depends on how deep of a wipe you want to do. If you just want to erase your personal data, then doing a "Wipe Handheld" as described above would suffice.
But if you want to obliterate every bit of data on the phone and start from scratch, then you should use javaloader to do a wipe of the entier filesystem and os, and then get the latest version of the BB OS from the RIM web site and install it with the Application Loader in the BB Desktop software. The process will take about 1 minute for the wipe and 35-40 minutes for the OS to install and reboot.
