Having refreshed my simulator a number of times after messing it up with some of my apps, I had been wondering if there would be a way to reset the Playbook back to its original unused state. Apparently the answer is yes. Here is the procedure:
On the Settings screen, click the Security menu item on the left.
Choose the option for Security Wipe.
Type the word "blackberry" in the textbox and press the Enter button.
The device will eventually reboot into its original unused state.
This is not the same as completely reinstalling the OS, but it will suffice for most goof-ups. The procedure looks basically the same as the standard security wipe on my Bold. I'm glad to see this functionality here. With the new Desktop Manager and this feature, the device looks all set to use as a development environment as well as a day-to-day device.
