At this point, you will need to pull the battery out.. and then put it back in.. Then it will boot up again and finish the security swipe. Once fully back up, you might want to do a 2nd security swipe.. Use BB Link to do it..

With BB Link, use the restore option and click on  restore to factory settings.
