The next point is: don't use the wipe data option on the bootloader screen, but use the wipe options in recovery instead.
If you follow these two points, you avoid most of the issues that get reported over and over again.

Thank you for replying. I am very green at all this and I don't want to mess things up. You mention getting a matching boot loader. How do I check what bootloader I posses and where do I find the correct stuff?
I now next to nothing about this process other than bricking my Samsung Ace phone a year ago and I have not dabbled in this since then. I am willing to get my hands dirty but I want to know how to get out of trouble should I do something stupid, which will most definitely happen.
Are you able to post a link to a tutorial that will help me out?
