Did you unlocked the bootloader? If no, you should start unlocking it but you will loose all data.

That is absolutely correct. But, as suggested before you may want to wipe the cache and dalvik cache partitions before flashing, and before you do anything in the recovery, please make a nandroid backup to restore in case you face any issues, it is very important.

you never ever need to wipe dalvik nor cache when flashing kernels. they have nothing to do with kernels. its the same as going to wipe your behind so you can fill your car up with gas.

Alright, Thanks for the clarification. I am used to the old fashioned method that always told individuals to wipe the cache and dalvik.

its from the past, when android was still young and we didnt know better. everyone was just told to do it always, regardless. and no one questioned it. but as we learned more and more, some upgraded their thinking, while others kept up with what was told to them in the past. when flashing roms as well, there is no need to wipe dalvik nor caches, as the act of flashing the rom automatically wipes both dalvik and cache
