How To Recover A "Nuked" Berry (Advanced Users)
All credit for this goes to Reed McLay @ Crackberry for the original post,
Thanks to acnst @ BlackBerry Forums

Credit to Afterfreeze for the Vista 64 command line.
1. In order to restore the device, you need to have BlackBerry Desktop Manager installed. The original, as supplied on the BlackBerry CD is adaquite. Tip: If you choose to download the newest v4.3, you can save a lot of time by choosing custom install and disabling Roxio Media Manager. At start-up, it really slows things down until it has built up it index of media. Ref #2 links to BlackBerry's download site.
2. After it is installed, you need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD.
3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.
Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.
Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.
Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.
4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.
We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch. This was the way all computers worked prior to Macintosh and Windows.
Windows XP: Start / Run... / Type "Command" into box without the quotes.
Windows Vista: Click on Start / Type "Command" into search box without the quotes.

You will see a black window similar to this. I have used UPPERCASE to highlight the typed commands.
CD PROGRAM FILES
CD COMMON FILES
CD RESEARCH IN MOTION
When using Vista 64 bit operating systems the command should look like this...
CD PROGRAM FILES (x86)
CD COMMON FILES
CD RESEARCH IN MOTION
When you hit enter at the last command a forced rebuild will start. No data or setting will be saved, however, they can be recovered from a previous backup.
5. Wait for it to finish.Thirty minutes is typical, do not interrupt it.
Once it has recovered, you can use Desktop Manager's Application Loader to customize it and restore from your backup files, if you have saved them previously.
Type EXIT in the Dos window when finished with it to close it down.
