That would be on the old, currently activated Pre-. However, if you read the "NOTE" at the bottom of that step, it suggests that if you're willing to give it a shot, "NOTE: The latest scripts (as of 5:00pm EST) MAY allow direct conversion of a 1.4.5 profile to 2.1.0 without deleting Palm Profile data. ..."

But, back to the original question: that step would be done on the Pre- before taking it apart and moving the comm board.
