Process is very simple. Download ROM. Download gapps of your preference though I suggest banks core. Reboot to recovery. Wipe dalvik/cache only. Flash rom followed by gapps. Reboot.

Thanks again, but I have to remind you that although I'm computer literate I'm completely new to flashing phones. I have no idea what "gapps" are, so how will I know which I prefer?! And "Banks core" is Greek to me, I'm afraid!
And surely if I "Flash ROM followed by gapps", that entails then re-loading all my apps and data again, which I really don't want to have to do?
I'll leave it for now, but I'm grateful for your help nevertheless. Cheers.

That's ok, but trust me when I say that you will not lose any data.

Gapps is Google Apps. Banks core is a gapps pack made by an xda user BaNkS. You will find it here. I like to flash just the core package which contains only Google playstore & Google play services. All other google apps i need, I download from play store.

This is just for your info...

Thanks again. I'm certainly interested to learn all of this. I just don't want to learn by messing up all my settings, or worse still bricking my phone, in the process, that's all!
So what exactly IS the dalvik/cache? Are you saying that I could boot into recovery, wipe the dalvik/cache and then come out again, and my setup, data, settings, etc would all still be fine? In which case, would it be a good idea for me to do that? What does wiping the dalvik/cache achieve?
